Five Years of Manufacturing Filterpresses Marked

Terex Washing Systems (TWS), a global leader with over 60 years of expertise in the design and manufacture of washing equipment, proudly celebrates five years of manufacturing filterpresses. This milestone underscores the team’s commitment to environmental responsibility in quarry operations worldwide, with their filterpresses processing approximately 100 million tonnes annually across the globe.

"Our journey in the design and development of our own filterpresses began in 2019 and today, we stand as a global leader in delivering complete ‘Feeder to Filterpress’ solutions," says Mark Fisher, Business Line Director of Terex Washing Systems. "The evolution of our filterpress technology underscores our commitment to driving efficiency and sustainability in the quarrying industry." 


Terex Washing Systems installed a full ‘Feeder to Filterpress’ solution at Albin Borer AG, which achieves throughputs of 250 tonnes per hour of C&D and excavation waste, producing nine saleable products.

Benefits of Filterpress Technology

One of the key advantages of the Terex Washing Systems filterpresses is their efficiency in water recycling, which reclaim over 95% of the water used in the washing process, minimising water consumption and reducing the need for freshwater input. Filterpresses also aid in waste reduction by producing a dry filter cake waste product. This dry cake is easily transportable and can be reintegrated into the quarry or used for other applications. By maximising water recycling and minimising waste generation, these systems help quarry owners meet environmental regulations and demonstrate a strong commitment to responsible quarrying practices.

Another benefit of filterpresses is improved overall efficiency of the wash plant by streamlining the water treatment process. By effectively separating solids from liquids, they produce cleaner water for reuse and optimise the performance of downstream equipment. Quality assurance is another significant advantage as filterpresses provide clean, recycled water to re-enter the washing process, improving the quality of washed sand and aggregates.
