Tube press filter

Pressure filtration

As particles get finer, more energy has to be introduced to separate solids and liquids. Designed to be used in demanding dewatering applications with ultra-fine, compressible, materials, Metso Outotec Tube press is proven to produce drip-free cakes from concentrate with less energy.

High capacity

Up to 100 bar filtration pressure

Energy efficiency

Low installed power

Superior performance

Operate on fine materials

Metso Outotec Tube Press - Industry's unique ultra-fine dewatering technology for versatile applications

The tube press is a membrane type filter press designed in cylindrical format and capable of operating at high filtration pressures up to 100 bar. The use of these high pressures enables a higher degree of separation of the liquid and solid phases.

Superior performance

Porosity and cake moisture contents are significantly lower than those obtained with low pressure filters. Consequently, filtrate recovery is high.

Filtration is conducted at a pressure level where the cake is produced as a hard surface dry, lump solid. Available data indicates that Tube Press output rates, in terms of dry solids per unit filter area, are much higher than either vacuum or plate filter presses. Filtrate solids concentrations are generally close to zero, allowing immediate disposal or direct recovery.

Fully automatic

Conventional filtration processes require continuous supervision and maintenance. The Metso Tube Press is fully automatic, thus, yielding big savings in the labor costs.

Variable chamber

The optimum filter cake thickness can be selected to suit operational requirements.


Cake wash and purge options, variable chamber depth, easily expandable plants, fits wide range of applications.

Service support

Our after sales service provides you with fully detailed operating and maintenance instructions, training, professional start-up services and technical assistance.

Metso tube press booster
Tube press booster range

The Booster range of Tube Press is generic for a new compact dewatering system. The Booster is an individual drive system closely coupled with the Tube Press.

The Booster range includes three sizes of installations to suit the requirements of small to medium scale installations, laboratory, and pilot scale installations.

The installation is very compact combining one motor to generate the mechanical dewatering press force. The unique system incorporates fully optimized control of the complete process, including feed back and statistical analysis of each press cycle.
