In the past, a downstream thickener was used in phosphating plants in the lamella separator to dewater the phosphate sludge. This process is extremely expensive and requires a lot of floor space. The process stability was only partially guaranteed which was reflected in the product quality.


Tried and true, solid technology since 1996 – the direct filtration filter press from MSE Filterpressen®


The first direct filtration filter press from MSE Filterpressen® was developed and supplied accordingly as early as 1996 in cooperation with leading automobile manufacturers. The direct filtration filter press has been steadily further developed over the years by MSE and has been sold to almost every car maker worldwide more than 250 times. These optimisations also make it possible to continuously dewater sludge with more than 50% aluminium content. The process stability was thus considerably improved.
