Filter Press Manufacturer Specializes in Dewatering Industrial and Municipal Sludges with Over 2000 Recessed Plate Filter Presses Installed Worldwide

Hy-PackIf you need to treat wastewater with high solids at your facility, you’ll want an effective, efficient filter press like those in Beckart’s Hy-Pack® Series of filter presses for IAF (Induced Air Flotation) and DAF (Dissolved Air Flotation) systems. These presses provide excellent solids retention, producing 35-50% solids in the filter cake, saving you money on disposal. These presses routinely outperform other sludge dewatering devices, including rotary vacuum, horizontal vacuum, and belt filter presses. That high level of effectiveness makes them a real asset to a variety of industries including cement and stone fabricating. They are especially well suited for facilities that use ink, paint, or plating solutions such as the metal finishing business. Manufacturers that produce starch as a byproduct will also benefit from a Hy-Pack® industrial filter press. In addition to being highly effective, these plate and frame filter presses are easy to use and fully automated, so your operators only need to be on hand for press set-up, cake removal, and maintenance. Each comes standard with 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 cloths with gasketted edges, and 2-speed hydraulic pumps.

Long-Lasting Filter Presses

Durability is critical for any equipment intended for heavy use and the hazards of an industrial environment. We ensure our Hy-Pack® presses will last in any environment by installing heavy-duty features like the tall-welded hydraulic cylinders and steel rails mentioned above. We even warranty our plate filter presses for 12 months, so you can rest assured your investment in a plate filter press will be well protected.
