Typical tower filter press application areas:

Mining, minerals processing and metallurgy

  • Industrial minerals slurries
  • Metal refineries slurries
  • Concentrate slurries
    • Iron
    • Copper
    • Zinc
    • Gold
    • Nickel

Chemical industries

  • GCC – ground calcium carbonate

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 Roxia 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

Roxia connects industrial filters to the Roxia Malibu online portal and enables remote monitoring of performance. With Smart Filtration, operators can analyse and 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 Roxia 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.
Roxia Tower Press filter's horizontal pressure filtration technology provides several benefits.

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.

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