As particles get finer the resistance against removing water increases.  Gravity dewatering can no longer be used, pressure has to be used. Vertical plate pressure filter VPA is based on the “air through-blow” dewatering concept, whereby water is displaced by air as it passes through a filter cake.

Filter cloths are suspended from tubular supports and hang between the filter plates. The high-capacity Metso VPA filter cloth ensures you get a clear filtrate and long lifetime regardless of your VPA filter model. Its slippery surface provides an excellent cake release, and its open structure helps you overcome blinding challenges.
