<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> Although pressure filter presses have successfully dewatered solids in several wastewater treatment facilities since the mid-1800s, it was not until 1970 that filter presses received widespread consideration and use in the United States. Since 1970, the filter press has evolved from a labor-intensive batch process to a partially automated operation. The reduction in overall labor requirements has made the filter press a more practical solids dewatering option.
