Flowrox Tower Press

Flowrox Tower Press (TP) is a fully automatic pressure filter excellent for any process that requires efficient solid/liquid separation. The design follows 40 years of respected experience in the field. Flowrox TP filter is a reliable production machine that delivers high performance over and over again. Horizontal pressure filtration technology provides the following benefits:

  • Uniform cake formation in the chamber enables efficient cake wash and air drying.
  • High-pressure diaphragm pressing ensures a more even and drier cake.
  • A single and continuous cloth design ensures a fast and reliable cake discharge without operator intervention.

Complete filtration support

Flowrox can also provide detailed analysis of process, filtration testing, equipment selection and sizing. Get complete service through the entire filter life cycle, modernizations, refurbishments, spare parts and maintenance support.

Complete solution includes Flowrox Tower Press filter and also the most important auxiliaries.

In addition to Flowrox Tower Press, we also deliver complete solutions including the most important auxiliaries. 

Filtration Testing and Process Support

Testing the slurry is essential before choosing the correct filter type and size. In this way, we can ensure the best possible process performance and the most cost-efficient solution for each application. Filtration testing can be done on-site or in the Flowrox filtration laboratory.

We only require a minimum sample of 20 litres  of slurry or 20 kg of dry solids.

Obtained filtration test results:

  • Recommendation of the most suitable filtration technology
  • Optimal filtration parameters
  • Filtration capacity, kgDS/m²
  • Cake moisture
  • Filtrate clarity
  • Cake washing efficiency (optional)
  • Filter media recommendation based on test results

 

Enhanced Process with Smart Filtration Digital Service

Flowrox connects the pressure filter to the Flowrox Malibu online portal and enables remote monitoring of performance. With Smart Filtration Digital Service, operators can optimize filtration process, increase production volume and detect failures before they even occur. All that can be done from anywhere with any computer, smart phone or other handheld device with internet connection.

Safety Features of Flowrox Tower Press Filter

Safety interlocks integrated into the automation programme

  • Protect the operators and the filter itself from failures and unintended misuse.

Perimeter protection with safety interlocked doors

  • When any of the doors open, the filter automatically stops. This prevents access to the possibly hazardous areas during the filter’s operation.
  • See-through construction minimises the need to open the door and approach the filter.

Safe working at height

  • Caged ladder with fall arrest system.
  • Railings around the top maintenance platform.
  • Lifts for safe and ergonomic service of the plate pack area.

Safe use

  • Filter comes with a user manual including safety instructions for safe operation and working procedures.
  • Before starting to use the filter, operators and maintenance crew receive safety training.
  • The operator interface guides users to safe use during daily operation. It also includes warnings about possible safety threats.
  • Password-protected user roles secure critical filter parameters.

Easy and safe maintenance

  • Filter cloth change happens at only one access point outside the filter.
  • Filter design includes extra space around the filter and enables an easy approach.
  • Check and maintenance points are easily accessible and away from the most corrosive areas.
  • Included remote handheld unit for safe maintenance and troubleshooting.

Tower Press safety features protect the operators and the filter itself from failures and unintended misuse.

Perimeter protection prevents access during filter’s operation, but leaves enough room for safe maintenance.
