Filter Press Filter cloths 

Filter cloths form part of Multotec’s filter press range of accessories, and their range is made of lightweight to heavy duty filter cloths, allowing you to optimise your filtering operation.

All our filter cloths are available in a range of synthetic and natural fibres and, depending on your solid/liquid separation requirements, they are either felted or woven.

Filter press advantages explained

Improved safety and lower operating costs: The clamping force on Multotec’s press filters is drastically lower than conventional hydraulic filter presses. This makes the process environment safer, while the reduced stress on components means your equipment lasts longer.

Automate your press’ internal cleaning: Filter press machines from Multotec have travelling spray bars that are used to simultaneously wash the entire array of filter cloths between each cycle in just 40 seconds.

Leading design innovations for reliable, efficient solid/liquid separation 

Rapid separation times increase processing efficiency: The rapid filter press’ separation cycles are completed within 15 to 20 minutes – a decrease in processing time of up to 10 minutes, compared to conventional hydraulic presses – allowing maximum processing capability.

Reduced component stress, improved safety and lower operating costs: The rapid filter press’ clamping force is produced by just 8% of the pressure powering conventional hydraulic filter presses, meaning the process environment is safer, while the reduced stress on components ensures longer equipment lifespan.

Automate your press’ internal cleaning: The rapid filter press contains internal travelling spray bars that wash the entire filter cloth array simultaneously between each cycle in just 40 seconds, eliminating excessive build-up of material residue and removing the need for manual intervention and unnecessary downtime.


After sales services: All of Multotec’s solutions are supported by an extensive after sales service that includes inspections and maintenance agreements. 

Holistic service and maintenance support: Multotec offers strategic stockholdings and sustained, comprehensive field service and maintenance support with a team of specially trained engineers – ensuring that your rapid filter press operates at maximum productivity efficiency through total component maintenance and fast resolutions of service downtime.
