Micronics Engineered Filtration Group debuted the MicroPress. The 150-millimeter (mm) filter press is available both as a rental unit for pilot testing and for purchase as a small, bench-scale filtration unit.
The MicroPress is designed for a variety of markets and particularly for low-solids polishing applications. The MicroPress has a single chamber with a head plate and tail plate, and can comfortably allow testing for cake thicknesses ranging from 15 mm to 60 mm. It comes equipped with both Membrane Squeeze and Cake Blow capabilities. The presqueeze cake volume with the MicroPress ranges from 122-486 milliliters.
The MicroPress comes complete with a feed pump and a high-pressure manual air pump for the membrane squeeze. Users provide the compressed air to run the pump. Several filter cloth styles appropriate to the application are also included.
