Ceramic

Ceramic slurry filtration is one of the long-term applications of filter presses. The aim is to obtain a ceramic mix to be used for creating fine pottery pieces.

In the past, this kind of product was filtered mainly with round, iron-casted filter press plates. With the introduction of polypropylene, plates have been replaced and the plate-shifting system has been introduced.

Besides ceramic slurry, nowadays the filter press is used mainly for the filtration of sludge from tile-enameling and porcelain stoneware production purification plants.

In these cases, sludge usually has a good filterability and fully-automatic filter presses can be used.

Main Applications:

  • Kaolin
  • Clay
  • Feldspars
  • Quartz
  • Silicates
  • Inorganic pigments
  • Iron oxides
  • Zirconium
  • Cobalt
  • Zinc oxides
