On the one hand, mobile laboratory filter presses differ only insignificantly from conventional filter press. The basic architecture, the working principle and process technology are identical. Due to their size and the accompanying uncomplicated handling, they were specially developed for test filtration and laboratory analyses. The dimensioning of filter presses often requires laboratory and/or pilot tests to be carried out. This allows the filtration properties of the feed medium to be evaluated and design data to be collected.
THE LABORATORY FILTER PRESS FOR DETERMINATION OF IMPORTANT PARAMETERS
Using the laboratory filter press, all necessary parameters can be determined easily and cost-effectively. The handy design allows the press to be used on site at the customer’s premises. The aim of using a laboratory filter press is also to investigate new tasks for suspension and cake treatment in order to be able to offer customer-specific production solutions. On the basis of the fundamental investigations, the filtration properties of the suspension are evaluated and the representative results are scaled up accordingly using a developed process concept for the design of a regular production filter press. MSE laboratory filter presses offer a variety of methods to investigate the filtration, washing and dewatering behaviour in filter cakes.
