THE WORLD'S FASTEST PLATES FILTER PRESSES - TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED
The Matec plates Filter Press is designed to achieve the best results in industrial sludge dewatering. All Matec filter presses are designed for use with HPT (High Pressure Technology) capable of working both at operating pressures common to all filter presses, 5-7 bar, and at high pressures close to or above 16-21 bar. This is made possible by the highly specialised design of our machines and the use of the highest quality and engineering level components such as hydraulic power units and pistons, oversized chassis structures and in addition high pressure pumps.
We work for many different sectors, the most important being mining, aggregates, gravel, sand, stone, ceramics and glass. Our mission is total customer satisfaction, so we offer prompt after-sales service, as well as pre-sales consulting to understand the real needs of our potential customers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
HOW DOES A PLATES FILTER PRESS WORK?
The filter press is an industrial machine used to make dewatered sludge through solid-liquid separation processes. It is a process of reducing the volumes of liquid substances with suspended solids inside.
Today, filter presses are used in different industrial sectors, for example for the dewatering of sludge from wastewater treatment processes, civil and industrial, and in many other processes such as chemical/pharmaceutical, aggregates and mining.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?
The end result using Matec filter presses is to have perfectly compact sludge with residual moisture below 16% -25% in the aggregates and marble sector and up to 8% in the mining sector while guaranteeing fully purified water ready for reuse.
WHAT IS HPT TECHNOLOGY?
HPT – 10/16/21/30 BAR | HIGH PRESSURE TECHNOLOGY
Matec filter presses were created for the aggregates sector where HPT (High Pressure Technology) is essential to achieve excellent results with difficult slurries, whereas our competitors come from sectors such as olive oil, marble and chemicals.
HPT is more expensive, needs higher quality and better components:
- Bigger pistons
- Larger hydraulic motor
- More iron for the frame structure
