Andritz Separation has developed a product series of filter presses. The SP series is a so-called “air-over-oil” filter press driven exclusively by compressed air - a power connection is, therefore, not required.
With the new SP series, Andritz is primarily targeting the process and wastewater industries. 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 a further development of the filter presses designed for manual operation only.
The heart of the new press is the hydraulic unit operated by compressed air. Once supplied with air, the pneumatically driven high-pressure pump generates up to 400 bar hydraulic pressure.
