MACSALAB Filter Presses are used extensively in mining and metallurgical laboratories for dewatering slurries, separating solids from liquids, etc. In operation the sample is placed in the vessel, the lid clamped shut and compressed air applied at approximately 600 kPa.
The Filter Presses comprise a fabricated steel base and yoke with a Grade 304 Stainless Steel vessel as standard. Vessels of Grade 316 Stainless Steel are available on special order. A quick release air coupling is supplied as standard as is a filling / pressure release valve.
The liquid drains through a discharge nozzle in the base of the vessel, leaving the dry solid inside.
