IEA Filter Press

Machine Design

The base of the machine structure of the IEA filter press is the massive frame, the hydraulic closure and optional design feature (cloth washing, etc...). The dimensioning of the IEA filter presses happens via the different plate formats, which give the filter surface. Dimensions from 250 x 250 up to 2,000 x 2,000 mm are available and can be realized with pressures up to 25 bar.

IEA-side rail construction

  • from simple manual to fully automatic design options
  • automated cake discharge

Available IEA Filter Press option

IEA-chamber filter presses

Conventional filter presses in robust construction and different applications. Various plate formats and different cake thicknesses adapted to the applications. Filter plate materials in polypropylene or superior, for applications ranging from 15 - 30 bar are available.

IEA diaphragm filter press

Membrane filter plates are designed on the basis of the chamber filter plate and additionally include an elastic diaphragm, which provides the filter cake a higher dewatering force. As pre press media compressed air or water can be used which allow pressures up to 30 bar.


Maintaining a clean environment requires filters to separate solids from liquids. IEA provides filter presses for a variety of applications and industrial fields.
