LAB200 TRAVEL Model 1

Portable Laboratory Filterpress

1686905318715 PhotoRoom

This is the simplest and most economical version of the entire range of laboratory filter presses built by Autemi.
The name “LAB200-TRAVEL” comes from the fact that the unit is compact and lightweight and is designed to be transported.

It is the ideal solution when the equipment needs to be easily and quickly transported to the site where dehydration tests are to be carried out.
In fact, this compact and lightweight unit makes it possible to carry out all the essential tests to evaluate the dewatering of the sludge or product to be filtered.

It can be supplied with 2 or 3 recessed plates or with 2 recessed plates and a membrane plate, to also evaluate the efficiency of dewatering with a membrane squeezing system.

The unit consists of two counterplates that compress the filter plates inside which precisely pressure filtration takes place.

The maximum filtration pressure is 15 bar.
The counterplates that hold the filter plates together during filtration are bound together by 4 threaded connections that must be unfastened to allow extraction of the dewatered cake.

This solution minimizes the footprint of the filter unit, which proves to be an ideal solution for transportation or for installation in very tight spaces.

The conformation of the filter plate is the same as that found on large industrial filter presses, so it is possible to perform reliable analysis in terms of real dewatering.

Manual Piston Pump - DEDRA.M

1686905286928 PhotoRoom

To carry out filtration tests directly at the installation site on which you want to conduct the tests, you must of course provide a pressure supply of the fluid or sludge you want to test inside the filter press itself.

This task requires a pump that is capable of applying a pressure of at least 12 to 15 bar for the filtration process to take place properly and for the cake to form correctly.

To do this, we have developed a hand pump that is based on the design features that can be found on industrial piston pumps.
The advantage of this pump is that, being manual, it does not require precisely any kind of external power supply, neither pneumatic nor electric.

This is a major advantage when no external power source is available at the installation site.

In addition, due to its small weight and size, it can be easily and quickly transported to the site where filtration tests need to be performed.
At the same time it is perfect for those laboratory installations where installation space is limited.

The advantage of not requiring any kind of power supply makes it ideal to be used anywhere in combination with the LAB200-TRAVEL transportable pilot filter press.

In all those cases where quick filtration tests need to be carried out, even in very remote, poorly serviced and hard-to-reach locations, the LAB200-TRAVEL filter press and DEDRA.M manual piston pump combo is the best solution to obtain valid dewatering results for sludge or industrial liquids.

lab filterpress and pump

DEDRA.M pump can be connected to filterpress LAB200-TRAVEL in order to feed the filterpress of slurry.

This is the ideal solution when on the stage is not available electric power supply neither net compressed air.

This allows you to perform a filtration test in each condition and in every place.

This installation requires very little space and can be easily transported in any car.

It is also possible to disconnect the pump from the filter press to save additional space, so that the system can be stowed in a travel trolley or even boarded on an airplane.

This version allow to install a maximum of 3 filtration plates.

Also a smaller version with only 2 plates is available

lab200 travel mini comp

This version is called LAB200-TRAVEL/MINI.

Also in this case is possible to connect the filterpress with the manual slurry feeding pump DEDRA.M.

This version allows you to save more space of the previous version, but of course you only have one filtration chamber for your test.

LAB200 TRAVEL Model 1

Full version with membrane squeezing

lab200 travel full comp

The LAB200-TRAVEL/FULL series is a natural extension of the previous series that allows even the most demanding customer to have a compact but complete equipment to perform all filtration processes.

This series combines the functionality of a small, complete solid-liquid separation equipment with the small dimensions that are characteristic of the series.
Normally this product is used more for laboratory testing and research and development departments that want to know and optimize all filtration parameters.

A maximum of 5 filter plates can be mounted in this series (they can be all 5 recessed plates, or 3 recessed plates and 2 membrane plates).


In fact, the LAB200-TRAVEL/FULL filter press provides the possibility of being able to take advantage of membrane squeezing, as the high-pressure generation system is installed, which allows the unit to reach a maximum squeezing pressure of 15 bar.

There is a 2:1 ratio pressure multiplier; all that needs to be done is to connect the unit to mains compressed air (6 or 7 bar is recommended).

Connecting this unit to compressed air will in fact supply the entire distribution system that generates both the pressure for pressing and the pressure to supply the pneumatic piston pump.
It is then possible in this unit, to perform Core-Blow and Cake-Blow, so you have the possibility to vary all the filtration parameters to find the best filtration recipe.

The only step which is not possible to perform with this unit is the Cake-Wash.

This unit is also easy to transport because has a base dimension of 60cmx65cm and an hegith of 62cm.

Two operator are enough to carry on this unit and place it on a desk or in a car.
