Sep. 22, 2017 – Andritz Separation, part of international technology group Andritz, has developed a series of filter presses.

The SP series is a so-called “air-over-oil” filter press driven exclusively by compressed air and as a result, a power connection is not required, says the company. Air-over-oil filter presses are used wherever there is no power connection available or possible in a process line. By deliberately dispensing with electrical equipment, the SP series is an alternative to conventional machines and a further development of the filter presses designed for manual operation only, adds Andritz, noting that the series is based on a small number of unit sizes, which helps to reduce the effort for storage of spare parts and training of operating personnel.
