R&B 2 Meter 2×2m Filter Press Municipal Wastewater Treatment Installation


R&B started as a hydraulic system manufacturer and in 1945 turned their focus to manufacturing the filter press. The first filter presses used manual closing devices and R&B started utilizing their mechanical engineering expertise along with the experience in hydraulics to develop hydraulic closure for their filter press. Today, essentially all filter press manufacturers utilize hydraulics for filter press closing/opening and in some cases to shift the filter plates. The presses were manufactured in a full gamut of sizes: 300mm, 470mm, 500mm, 630mm, 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm, 1200 × 1600mm, 1500mm, 2m × 1.5m, 2m × 2m, and 2m × 2.4m. The 1200mm filter presses were also manufactured for filtration pressures to 60 bar (900 psi) for special clay filtration applications.
