Latham Automatic Filter Press


The filter press capitol is the town of Stoke-On-Trent, England. More filter press companies have emerged from this city than any other:

  • S.H. Johnson (Strattford, Eng.)
  • William Boulton
  • Johnson Progress
  • Eurotechnic
  • Manor Engineering
  • Edwards & Jones (E&J)
  • Micronics
  • R&B Filtration Systems / Andritz
  • Latham

With all this filter press experience no wonder Latham pursued the totally automatic filter press. It was destiny. Latham Automatic Filter Presses can be equipped with one of several automatic cake discharge options; plate shakers and cloth shakers.

For decades filter press manufacturers have been searching for the fully automatic filter press to reduce the on-site operator required to view and often manually assist the filter cake to drop from the filter plates. This automation would counter the “no operator required” boasting by the centrifuge and belt filter manufacturers.

We now offer the Latham automatic filter presses to North America and the timing could not have been more perfect. The prices are great! The British Pound is now at a 30 year low against the U.S. Dollar. The prices are down by 20% in the last few months.


Let us assist you with your filter press sizing or even the process design. We have been designing filter press systems since 1974 and we can also offer the filter press pumps or pumping systems to match your requirements.
