Information About Filter Cloths

When building a filter press, the very foundation lies within the filter cloth. This is the front line of the dewatering process. The cloth will separate the fine particles from the water or other type of liquid in your application, forming a filter cake. This is the deposit of solid materials left behind after the filtering process.

We offer stock cloths in various sizes for quick shipping. We can also customize cloths to match the specs of your filter press, providing for a perfect fit.

Importance of Replacing Filter Cloths

When using a filter press for separating liquid from solids, you need filter cloths that are in top-notch condition. When the porosity of the material becomes compromised, it may not perform the separation process effectively.

Also, when the fabric weave becomes stretched with use, it may become too porous and unable to perform efficiently. Conversely, filter cloths may become clogged when particles become lodged deep into the fabric. In this case, it’s ineffective to clean the cloth chemically. When your filter press no longer forms a solid cake, it is time to replace the filter cloth.
