Laboratory & Pilot Filter Presses

Avery Filter Company manufactures laboratory and pilot filter presses and these are available for sale or rental for evaluation of new applications at your facility.

Often the sizing of filter presses requires that laboratory and/or pilot testing be conducted to evaluate the filtration characteristics of the feed material and to gather design data. Laboratory and pilot tests are also valuable tools for selecting filter media, evaluating chemical conditioning when required, filtration optimization and troubleshooting.

Representative samples are run through the Avery Model 177 laboratory filter press. Variable volume membrane filter press capabilities are evaluated with our compression simulator operating it various squeeze pressures.

For on-site testing, Avery 470 mm membrane pilot units are available for rental. Typical pilot filter presses provide 1.0 ft.³ of unsqueezed cake capacity and 21.0 ft.² of filtration area. These portable units are supplied completely pre-piped, including a feed pump and a 225 psi water squeeze package. Only 100 psi compressed air is required for operation. Fixed volume and variable volume membrane squeeze tests can be run at various pressures to determine the best designed for your application.
