Improving Operating Efficiency With The Verti-Press Tower Filter Press

Our Verti-Press Tower Filter Press is one of our most effective products for dewatering chemicals and industrial minerals. It is a dewatering filter used by some of the biggest names in the business, including Kodak and Dofasco. By using vertically stacked columns, the Verti-Press can produce dry, solid cakes and a high wash efficiency with a minimal footprint.

The Verti-Press uses a diaphragm to mechanically squeeze the mother liquor from solid cakes. After the liquor is pressed out, what remains are dry cakes that may consist of up to 94% solids. Many manufacturing and processing plants require a specified dryness in their processes. With the Verti-Press, you’ll be able to meet your requirements every time.

Combining both high-speed cycling with full automation, the Verti-Press has a very high solids output. Because of its design, this dewatering filter can cycle in as little as five minutes, maximizing efficiency within your manufacturing plant.

The simple, stacked design will also allow you to use your plant’s space to its full potential. With only a few moving parts, you’ll be able to save money on maintenance and energy costs. The individual chambers can be isolated, allowing routine maintenance to occur at your convenience.

With one of the most effective products in the industry, Filtra-Systems is ready to help you improve your business. So what are you waiting for?

3 Benefits of Automatic Filter Presses Have Over Manual Filter Presses

The Verti-Press automatic filter press from Filtra-Systems is the most advanced product of its kind available today. We understand the unique needs of organizations within different industries, and can provide an appropriately sized press to meet the specifications of different applications. These are 3 benefits that our automatic filter presses offer over manual ones.

Benefit One: Increased Filtration Time

Fully automatic filter presses can be rapidly cycled, especially as compared to their manual counterparts. With an automatic belt wash, time spent scraping plates is eliminated, freeing up man-hours for other projects. The unique design of the Verti-Press utilizes vertically stacked chambers that offer flexibility and improve wash efficiency for a more even product.

Benefit Two: Increased Efficiency

Automation if not removes, then greatly reduces the potential for error in any process, resulting in a safer, more efficient process that uses fewer materials and lowers costs. The use of an automatic filter press produces more accurate and precise results. The size of the filter cake can be dialed in by selecting the amount of slurry fed into the press during each cycle.

Benefit Three: Requires Less Energy

Any reduction in labor and error results in better energy efficiency. As multiple industries look for more energy-efficient processes and “green” technology, the benefits of using an automatic filter press are also expected to grow.

Additional Benefits of the Verti-Press

The benefits of automatic filter presses over traditional plate and frame filter technology are surpassed by the Verti-Press. The flexibility and superior design has resulted in improved efficiency and safety for many previous customers. It minimizes the potential for chemicial exposure and ensures equipment safety. The Verti-Press from Filtra-Systems is the best choice in filter presses available today.
