Smart Filter Press

Roxia Smart Filter Press runs self-diagnostic in each filtration cycle, making it fully automatic self cleaning filter.
  • Fully automatic operation with enhanced safety
  • High capacity with minimized footprint
  • Lower operation & maintenance cost

New degree of automatic operation

Our Smart Filter Press™ (SFP) is a self-cleaning industrial filter with a small footprint. Do not let that deceive you! It can reach up to 10 times higher capacity compared to conventional recessed filter presses of the same size. Filtration happens in gasketed filter plate pack behind enclosed and interlocked doors without slurry sprays and no human contact with filter cake, filtrate or fumes.

Roxia Smart Filter Press has various new and innovative features including fully automatic cake discharge and trouble-free operation almost without operator involvement. Unique design of this filter press has integrated smart self-monitoring system. This makes the SFP filter the safest and the least labour demanding fully automatic filter press at the market.

Testing filter presses

The reasons for a trial filter press are manifold. Our filter presses are  mini-scale production units, often used as transitional filter presses until the ordered press can be delivered. They are ideal for filtration tests.

Contact us and let’s assess the situation together and find the best solution for you.

Enhance process with integrated Smart Filtration

Roxia SFP filter can be connected to the Roxia Malibu™ online portal to remotely monitor and analyse performance. With Smart Filtration, operators can optimise filtration process, increase production volume and detect failures before they even occur. All that can be done from anywhere with computer, smart phone or other handheld device with internet connection.

Monitoring the filtration process online through Roxia Malibu portal is easy and user-friendly.
