Slurries of waste water, such as metal hydroxides, alum sludges, etc., are pumped into the chambers of the filter press.
The filtrate passes through the filter cloth and the solids are retained. The solids collect on the cloth forming an excellent filter or if one were to intentionally pre-coat the cloth.
As additional solids are pumped into the chamber, the solids continue to collect until the entire chamber is full of dewatered solids. The press must then be cleaned and recycled.
