Filter Press Basics, PROs & CONs, Alternatives A REVIEW OF FILTER PRESS BASICS AND ISSUES VERSUS ALTERNATIVE BATCH OR CONTINUOUS REPLACEMENT TECHNOLOGIES. INTRODUCTION. Filtration experts, over the years, have discussed and debated filter presses and have indicated that soon they would be a thing of the past; the last filter press would be replaced by more modern equipment. Given that filter presses were amongst the oldest mechanical dewatering devices, this was a fairly plausible suggestion. However, now, almost half a century later, any...
