Material is fed into an opening on top of the press, passing through a variable pitched auger screw and then compressed against the end plate (held in position by an air cylinder). As the material is squeezed, the extracted fluid passes through a perforated screen where it is collected for safe disposal and coolant recovery.

Material then presses against the endplate, forcing the endplate to open and allow the dewatered-material to discharge. The resistance of the endplate can be adjusted as required to enhance your fluid filtration needs.
