Investing in a water filtration system, like a filter press, can be a huge commitment. While filter presses are the most effective solution for taking care of slurry and wastewater, the upfront cost can be intimidating. The efficiency a filter press will create—in addition to eliminating the fear of violating wastewater discharge regulations—is well worth the cost. In order to keep this expensive equipment running properly for a long time, ongoing maintenance and support is of the utmost importance.
Before you decide on water filtration equipment, research the company you will be buying (or renting) from. Not only do you need to confirm that you are working with a reputable company, but you also want to work with a company that provides ongoing support and maintenance. There are several important questions you need to ask: Do technicians install the equipment themselves? Will technicians be able to troubleshoot problems? How accessible are they? Can they fix the equipment on location quickly? Ongoing support and maintenance is an absolute must from the company you’re working with.
Ensure that all employees responsible for operating the water filtration system have a clear understanding of how it works and how it runs. Thorough training will prevent maintenance problems in the long run. If they aren’t running the equipment properly, more maintenance will be required. For instance, workers could overload the machine or fail to clean it properly, which will lead to issues with functionality. You should buy from a company that provides training on the equipment after installation.
Failing to perform regular maintenance on your filter press can lead to bigger issues down the road. Taking care of simple issues, like fixing the screens, replacing a screen cloth, or repairing a pump will keep your machine running smoothly and efficiently. Without making these basic repairs, you may be left with a machine that simply sits in the corner, waiting to be fixed.
