CANDLE FILTER

Separation of liquid from solids takes place in chambers of filter press designed by Hidroforce™. After being locked within rigid chamber frames with expandable cloth membranes a sugar beet slurry gets gradually pressed to release liquid masses. Press filtering process is automatic and allows for adjustment of process parameters while well-positioned hydraulics reduces operation cycles.
