Exchange the filter cloths in your filter press with up to 40% less downtime

Changing the filter cloths is a time-consuming process for filter press operators. What’s more, two operators are needed to change a single barrel-neck filter cloth on larger filter plates. This not only ties up human resources, but also leads to significant downtime and thus higher costs. This is why the specialists at ANDRITZ SEPARATION have developed the feed shoe: SmartFEED.
