In simplest terms, the primary application of a filter press is to separate solids from liquids. The product to be gained from the filtration process can be the liquid or filtrate (as in fabric processing), the solid or cake (as in metal hydroxide removal), or both (as in distillery applications). Regardless of application all Sperry Filter Presses are designed with three essential customer objectives in mind:

  • To meet filtration requirements
  • To minimize capital investment costs
  • To minimize operating costs

Model 1200mm Fully Automatic Filter Press

Sperry frameworks are constructed of either Ductile Iron or fabricated steel with capacities ranging from as little as a half cubic foot to in excess of 150 cubic feet. Sperry can customize your filter press to meet your unique requirements; whether it be higher pressures or temperatures or special coatings for filter press plates, Sperry can manufacture a filter press for YOUR application.
