A Brief Information About The
Overhead Filter Presses
The Overhead filter press is used in many applications including: the chemical process,
hazardous waste treatment, food processing, petroleum, mining & aggregate industries,
and many others. They have become an efficient means of dewatering and offers the most
advanced automation available today. They are the most operator friendly press out of all
the filter presses. These presses have a plate shift design which allows the operator to have
free access to the plate stack, filter clothes and cakes. The moving parts of an overhead
filter presses locate out of the operator’s way, which allows safe accessibility for ease of
maintenance and faster operation in addition to less operator intervention. Along with its
own accessories, there are some optional accessories such as thickeners and driver heads,
cake discharge systems, polymer systems and splash guards are available with the
overhead filter press.
Design: The Twin I-beam frame design of the overhead filter presses offers maximum strength
and stability. The frame makes the press easy to use with drip trays, chutes and discharge
Plate Shifter: The overhead plate shifter comes with the energy efficient components which make
the operation safer. Additionally, the self-aligning rollers guarantee the plate stack alignment.
Hanging filter plates: They have filter plates which make it easy to check the cake discharge and
replacing of the filter cloth.
Advanced technology: These presses have adopted advanced technology, which features low
failure safe, easy operation, and low maintenance.
System design and integration: This type of presses is famous around the world for their ability to
discharge even the highest clarity filtrates and the driest possible solids with the fastest cycle
times. This machine is a perfect example of equipment needed to produce high filter cake solids
with minimal labor requirements and minimal chemical usage.
Membrane plates: The membrane plates are quite useful in some special applications which
need extra dryness. With the help of these plates, operations are allowed to execute efficiently
before discharging the cake.
Simple mechanism: The Twin I-beam overhead filter press has the simplest mechanism out
of all forms of the plate and frame filter press. The mechanism also has a long life with little
Minimal contamination: The cake contamination of shifter components is minimized by the
overhead plate shifting.
Easy replacement: The hanging plates of the press help in easy cake discharging and easy
replacement of the filter cloths.
Leak free operation: The O-ring liner pipes ensure that there should be a leak free
operation. Moreover, it also prevents the carbon or stainless steel parts to get wet by the
Low energy consumption: There is less energy used by the overhead filter press during its
