Filter Press Cloth Efficacy

Filter press cloths are an effective filtration medium that may filter particulates in a wide range of different micron ratings, often between 5 microns to 25 microns, depending on the contaminants being filtered. The clothes fit between filter press plates, sometimes also called frame filter presses or simply plates. The number of plates used for filtration varies significantly based on the required specifications of the application. For example as few as 4 plates up to as many as 200 plates may be used. The filter press cloths trap the contaminants in solid batches known as filter cakes.
