Automatic tower filter presses Progress-KMPm

Specialized tower filter presses KMPm are designed for filtering of easy and not very difficult to filter slurries containing from 50 up to 1200 kg/m3 of suspended particles and with solid phase density up to 5000 kg/m3.
Cake thickness can be within the range of 10-40 mm. Slurry temperature: 5-80ОС. The most effective usage of filters KMPm is to obtain cake of low moisture.

Tower filter presses KMPm with filtering area up to 196 m2

The unique design of the filter allows achieving the minimum cake moisture (6-9%) when dewatering slurries, formed in the process of benefication of nonferrous metal ores such as copper, zinc, lead, etc.
Filter presses KMPm are equipped with additional actuators to move the filter cloth during cake discharge and reduce the load on the filter cloth.
Filter parts contacting with product can be made of carbon steel, stainless steel, and titanium; the choice of material depends on product’s properties.
