What is a Filter Press Pump?
A Filter Press Pump is a specialized type of pump designed to fill a filter press with a slurry or suspension from an external storage or disposal facility, typically used in solid-liquid separation processes, typically at high pressures reaching 24 bar.
What are the key features of Tapflo Filter Press Pumps?
Tapflo Filter Press Pumps are known for their robust construction, reliable performance, and ability to handle high-pressure applications with ease. They are equipped with a non-return valve to prevent backflow and are available in various materials to suit different process requirements. Air operated filter press pumps have the unique feature that when the filter press is full, they stop and no additional safety systems are required to shut down the pump (like in case of electrically operated filter press pumps).
How does a Filter Press Pump work?
