Filters Press

Effective sludge dehydration achieving high dryness.

Filters Press


Toro Equipment’s sludge dewatering equipment, manufactured in our facilities, is a good alternative for the treatment of waste from both urban and industrial wastewater treatment processes.

The high dryness of the cakes achieved allows the waste to be managed as solids, considerably reducing waste management costs.


  • Draco® Filter Presses achieve greater dryness, reducing the cost of managing the sludge generated.
  • Easily transportable sludge. Problems such as liquid overflow in the containers are avoided.
  • Sludge can be stacked once dewatered. The high degree of dryness facilitates sludge management, composting and logistics.
  • Total reliability 24 hours a day. Unattended operation thanks to the cake shaking system.
  • Low process water consumption.
  • Minimal maintenance costs.
  • No need for greasing.
  • 100% automated cycle operation.
  • Precise control of actual sludge production.
  • Fairings that favour more hygienic atmospheres than rotating systems.
  • The sludge only comes into contact with the air at the moment of opening.
  • Possibility to filter sludge directly from the biological reactor without thickeners.
  • Filtration below 10 μ.
  • Guaranteed flow rate in cycles longer than 24 hours.
  • Low investment and high reliability.
  • High drainage capacity filter press.
  • Fast cycles.
  • Robust operation.
  • Closed execution. The material does not come into contact with the chassis.
  • Chassis in stainless steel or GRP infused in isophthalic resin or vinylester with high structural and corrosion resistance.
  • Special filter plates.


The range of filter press consists of five different models

Extend the life of your equipment with materials manufactured using environmentally friendly processes.

All machines, regardless of model and size, are characterised by:

  • Manufactured in stainless steel St 37-2, AISI 304 and GRP.
  • Epoxy paint surface finish to protect them from possible corrosion.
