filter press


filter press
In petroleum refining, the equipment used to separate wax and oil in paraffin-wax distillates. It consists of a series of canvas-covered plates separated by narrow iron rings. The distillate is run into a narrow bore extending the length of the press and is forced into the spaces between the plates formed by the rings. The oil penetrates the canvas covering the plates and drips into a trough beneath the press, the wax remaining in the plates.
