An Automated Filter Press from Beckart Environmental Can Save You Money on Disposal Costs and Labor

With an automated filter press from Beckart Environmental, you can effectively dewater sludge with minimal labor required. Our Hy-Pak® series of batch filter presses produce solid, compact sludge cakes when used with IAF (Induced Air Flotation) and DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) systems, and only require operator intervention for the press set-up, cake removal, and maintenance. They produce 35-50% solids in the filter cake, saving you money on disposal. Plus, our automated filter press equipment comes with many standard features that you might need to pay extra for from other suppliers. Notable components include:

  • Cold-draw steel side rails
  • Solid hot-rolled steel head and follower plates
  • All-welded hydraulic cylinders
  • Air blowdown drain system
  • Polypropylene recessed filter plates rated at 100 psi
  • Polypropylene filter clothes with gasketed edges
  • Two-speed hydraulic pumps

Our filter presses will integrate easily into virtually any existing wastewater filtration systems, enabling you to seamlessly upgrade your sludge dewatering equipment without also needing to replace other technology. However, if you would also like to upgrade your treatment tank, chemical feed system, or any other element of your wastewater treatment automation system, we’ll provide you with a cost-effective solution. We design and build our filter presses in-house, cutting out the middle men to save you money.
