Press dewatering of washed sulphuric casein curd was investigated using a hydraulically-loaded pressure cell (Rowe cell). The 76-cm diam. Rowe cell was constructed of brass, load was applied to the sample by means of water pressure on a rubber diaphragm acting on the top porous flexible platen, and the drainage surface consisted of a filter paper and a porous stone disc.
