Matec Filter Press

To obtain perfectly dried mud cakes, Matec filter press is the best technical/economical solution. Our machines use more pressure than those of our competitors, working up to 20 Bars. More pressure means greater results, both in terms of cake dryness and cycle time. We manufacture four ranges of filter presses to handle all capacities and flow rates, from a small ACQUAE machine, trough the IGNIS and TERRAE ones, to the MAGNUM filter presses, the biggest ones available on the market.

Automation, top brands, 24-month warranty, HPT and TT2 Fast are what Matec can offer compared to our competitors and we offer them for every range, whatever the size of your business is. The average residual moisture is 15%, but we can squeeze cakes to obtain 7-8% residual moisture and the water obtained from the dewatering is clean and ready to be reused or disposed of safely. Matec technology complies with the latest environmental regulations, while maximizing the returns of the plant, through savings and earnings. That is what clients have been asking for.

Case Studies

MATEC values the experience gained working on past projects. The following case studies have been developed to show how MATEC dealt with problems our competitors could not solve.

armstrong-tabsIn the coal sector, Matec can show real proof of the quality of our plants. We carried out more than 50 installations worldwide.

We have managed to solve several problems related with the disposal of the material.

Some of our best plants are in North America, precisely in the USA:
- Armstrong Coal (Kentucky);
- Iron Mountain Project (Nevada).

Through Matec machinery, our clients succeded in getting rid of obsolete systems, like the belt press, and increase their savings.

sun-rock-tabsThe aggregates sector is one of the sectors we started with more than 10 years ago.

One of the main goals when dealing with aggregates production site has been eliminating the settling pond used for the disposal of fines. MATEC plants guarantee dry mud cakes that can be easily stocked and disposed of.

In this sector, we can show several examples of successful installations in the USA:
- Carolina Sunrock (North Carolina);
- Preferred Sand (Wisconsin). 


arcelor-tabsFor the iron-ore sector, where it is important recovering the metal and mineral concentrate to maximize the returns, we have installed several plants.

Through filtration processes with MATEC machines, the recovery of precious materials can be dramatically increased.

In this sector, we usually dedicate different machines to the concentrate and the tailing sectors.

Matec Golden Rules

The ten rules for not making a mistake in choosing your filterpress.
After evaluating and comparing the various points, we are sure you will choose MATEC product, because the best one for its price/quality ratio.

01 Experience

Buying a plant is a big investment. That is why you should entrust who can show their experience over the years and who has installed many plants in your sector.
MATEC is a worldwide leader with references in all the main sectors and over 1000 installed plants.The best clients trust MATEC’s experience

02 Pressure

Pressure is to one plant what speed is to a car. More pressure (more speed) means better performances, a shorter cycle time, a lower humidity percentage and better results.
MATEC is the only 100% HPT company using pressures up to 16 and 21 BARS, twice as much as the pressures at which competitors work (8/10 BARS).

03 Gasser System

The shaking system is fundamental, without it you will have the cloth life reduced, the machine spraying and, above all, an operator to be always present.
MATEC uses the patented and high efficiency pneumatic GASSER system.

04 Warranty

MATEC is the only company which gives a 36 month full warranty for its plants, for the electrical, the hydraulic and the mechanical parts.

05 Automatism

A fully automatic plant does not need an operator, reducing the running costs.
MATEC produces only 100% automatic and hi-tech plants.

06 Capacity

Always compare m³ per cycle and tons per hour. The productivity of a filter press is given by m³ per cycle and cycles, and consequently by tons of dry mud cakes produced, per hour.
MATEC designs and builds plants from 0,5 to 100 m³/h, every plant is automatic and customized.

07 Opening time

The opening time (mud cake discharging) is an unproductive dead time. The faster the time for cake discharging and for restarting the filtration, the more productive is the machine.
MATEC is the only company which uses the TT2 patented system that reduces discharging times of big machines from 15/20 minutes to less than 3 minutes.

08 Stainless steel

Stainless steel or iron is an important choice for the plant lifetime and
MATEC uses only AISI 304 Stainless steel to guarantee every product for 10 years and to reduce maintenance costs drastically.

09 Brands

The use of important brands does not only mean quality, it is also an important guarantee for the availability of
components locally.
MATEC only uses top brands. Siemens and Allen Bradley for the electrical part, Bosch Rexroth for the mechanical part and 100% made in Italy feeding pumps.
