DINSHAW FILTRATION SYSTEMS Pvt. Ltd. formerly known as Dinshaw Iron Works was founded more than a century ago in 1884 in Mumbai. Back then it was in the business of manufacturing of rotary oil mills for crushing seed and machining of ferrous & non ferrous castings.

  • In the 40’s, the first filter press - a 14” plate and frame type in Cast Iron construction, was introduced in India by Dinshaw.
  • By the 60’s wooden filter press for chemical industries started being manufactured.
  • At the start of the 80’s Dinshaw made the steel structures for the filter press wherein the plates were imported from Germany.
  • By the mid 80’s the sister concern of Dinshaw – Presswell Filters was established in Belgaum with machines like horizontal boring, Plano millers, radial drilling machines, lathes.
  • The advent of the 90’s saw PP Plates being made indigenously and automatic cake discharge mechanisms being manufactured in house. By now Dinshaw became an exporter of filter press machines.
  • The 2000’s brought the establishment of the other unit – M/s. Purav Industries at Hatkadangale, Kolhapur where the PP plates manufacturing started multifold with latest tech moulding presses and upgradation of the design facitlites. By now all components of the filter press were manufactured in-house in any of the 3 facilities with not just volumes increasing many fold but qualities improving to international standards
  • In the past decade, the focus now was more on the automation with in-house automation engineers working to provide complete integrated solutions.
  • Now Dinshaw is looking forward to manufacture bigger sized plates and automatic machines thus helping the customer reduce the footprint and at times reducing the count of machines required thus bringing down the initial cost and operational & maintenance costs associated.
  • Dinshaw Filtration Systems Pvt. Ltd. itself has a manufacturing unit in the heart of Mumbai, at Grant Road. It manufactures the components like hydraulic cylinders, components of the washing system, bomb door, etc. The Electrical and Instrumentation department operate from this unit and so the PLC / regular control panels and its accessories are also made here
