Slurry/Pilot Testing
FFP provides pilot/slurry testing on site or in our lab. We are able to offer various types of filter press pilot press units for rent. Testing results will provide optimum selection of filter cloths and filter plates and will determine if precoating or slurry conditioning is required. FFP System's can also offer the services of a technician to perform these tests and submit a report of the results.
Design Engineering
FFP System's filter presses are custom designed and engineered. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to verify new designs. Our patented "cell beam" design for overhead filter presses provides a stable, compact design which greatly resists twisting and bending during normal operating and static loading. The design allows stress to be more evenly distributed through the entire crossection and thus reducing stress concentrations in critical areas. This results in smaller lighter sections without compromising strength.
Fabrication and Machining
FFP System Inc. manufactures all its components to conform to CWB 47.1 welding standards, and ISO 9001-2000 quality standards. It is our policy to support our customers by ensuring the quality of our products.

Experienced technicians perform all assemblies for fit and function as customer requirements.
