Choose a Hy-Pack® Industrial Filter Press for Your Facility

If you want the ideal industrial filter press for your facility, look to Beckart Environmental. We specialize in helping industrial clients dewater sludge in the most efficient manner possible, and we can proudly say that thousands of our Hy-Pack® series filter presses have been installed worldwide. These plate-and-frame presses include many advanced features, such as cold-draw steel side rails, all-welded hydraulic cylinders, hot-rolled steel head and follower plates, and air blowdown drain systems, which you may pay more for from other manufacturers.

Thanks to their innovative design, our presses routinely outperform alternative types of dewatering presses, including rotary vacuum, horizontal vacuum, and belt filter presses. Some of the benefits of our Hy-Pack® filter presses include:

  • Efficient solids retention – Our presses will produce 35-50 percent solids in the filter cake, yielding a highly compact sludge cake that you can dispose of easily and affordably.
  • Full automation capabilities – Your Hy-Pack® industrial filter press will essentially require operator assistance only for setup, cake removal, and maintenance, minimizing the need for labor at your facility.
  • Easy integration – We’ve designed our filter presses with compatibility in mind, enabling you to add a filter press to virtually any system without having to replace your existing equipment.

We can also provide many other types of filter press dewatering equipment and supplies that will help you effectively dewater sludge. For instance, we offer infrared dryers, dump carts for forklifts, and drum disposal systems, as well as filter aids to promote high solids content in the residual filter cakes.

If you add an industrial filter press to your facility, make sure to also try our quick-change filter press cloths. Designed with Velcro closures, these cloths can be installed in one tenth of the time of normal filter cloths, saving you a tremendous amount of time and money as a result.

Other Industrial Sludge Dewatering Equipment

As part of our focus on providing the ideal sludge dewatering solutions for all businesses, we offer centrifuges in addition to industrial filter presses. Unlike filter presses, which apply pressure to sludge to remove its water content, centrifuges separate solids and liquids by rotating sludge at a high speed. This process causes solids to go to one end of the equipment while liquid goes to the other end.

Our industrial centrifuges stand out for their high-level performance and versatility. Like our industrial filter presses, they operate on an automated basis, which ensures optimal efficiency and reduces the need for manual oversight. And since they can handle between 5-150 gpm (or more), they are an appropriate choice for industrial facilities large and small.
