Why McLanahan Side Beam Filter Presses
McLanahan Filter Presses are designed to generate easy-to-manage dry products or waste material. The Filter Press also provides the ability to optimize the recovery of clean, reusable water. McLanahan Filter Presses can address many typical issues associated with fine material processing, including full slurry ponds/dams, high material handling equipment repair costs, limited expansion capabilities, environmental permit restrictions, high waste material handling costs and limited water availability.
McLanahan Filter Presses are used by many 24/7 operations that rely on the machine's performance and McLanahan's excellent support to keep their plants running and profitable.
McLanahan Filter Presses are engineered using a single hydraulic cylinder. This results in robust and reliable automation capabilities with lower horsepower, fewer control valves and less complexity than multi-cylinder designs. McLanahan’s Side Beam Filter Press offers a lighter-weight, lower-cost, more portable design compared to the Overhead Beam design.
Unlike the traditional plate and frame presses, McLanahan’s Filter Press line features modern recessed plates or membrane plates, both of which create a chamber for dewatering the slurry without trapping the cakes within the frames. This allows the dewatered cakes to discharge more easily than with traditional plate and frame presses.
Due to the variability in permeability and surface area, each site’s material should be tested prior to sizing a Filter Press for a specific customer application. McLanahan offers experienced lab and on-site pilot testing with a wide range of testing capabilities. Other parameters are used for green field sites when testing isn’t possible.
McLanahan’s Customer Service Team offers a wide range of fast spare parts sourcing as well as routine and emergency maintenance service support. All McLanahan Filter Presses can have customer remote control access capability for efficient monitoring and troubleshooting.
