Metso's Mining and Construction Technology
“Traditional” mechanical dewatering often leaves the cake too wet or too sticky to handle effectively and usually demands further treatment such as thermal drying.
The Tube Press, because of its unique design, will automatically and economically dewater most slurries to produce a clear filtrate and, without any form of thermal drying, a hard, surface dry cake that is convenient to handle as a product for immediate storage or for disposal.
Tube Press Booster range is suitable for:
* Where the process requires very low cake moisture eg. smelters
* Where cake handleability is critical e.g. underground slimes
* Where filtrate is a valued product
* Where cake transport costs are significant
* Where cake is to be disposed of to landfill
Main benefits of the tube press are:
* Driest possible cake solids
* Maximum volume reduction
* Exceptionally clear filtrate
Main features of the tube press are:
* The Metso Tube Press is fully automatic which will yield big savings in manpower costs.
* The Tube Press saves energy, lowers environmental impact and makes your process productive.
