How An Overhead Beam Filter Press Works


McLanahan Overhead Beam Filter Presses are a recessed plate style of filter press used to dewater slurry and create easy-to-manage cakes. Contrary to popular belief, Filter Presses do not squeeze material to remove the liquid. Instead, the pressure of the slurry material as it is pumped into the chambers created by the recessed plates causes the solids in the slurry to build on the cloth covering the plates and the liquid to pass through.
