Information About Filter Cloths
When separating solids from liquids using a filter press, the very foundation lies within the filter cloth. This is the front line of the dewatering process. The cloth will separate the fine particles from the water or other type of liquid in your application, forming a filter cake. This is the deposit of solid materials left behind after the filtering process.

Filter press cloths are available in a variety of materials form the standard oxford weave to the quick-release, mono-multifilament.

The fabric that is most commonly used is polypropylene. However, polyester is also available.
For non-gasketed cloths, we can provide latex edging which provides a better seal and therefore, less leakage when the press is in operation.
