German term or phrase: Massefilter/Massefiltration
Die Entwicklung der Massefilter war ein historischer Schritt.

Die Entwicklungen der Massefiltration standen in starker Konkurrenz zu den Papierfiltern, konnt die Masse doch nach Gebrauch gewaschen und neu verwendet werden. Massefilter waren das erste Filtersystem mit regenierbarem Filterhilfsmittel.

So, I don't think it's "mass filter", the context is beer brewing and replacement of mass filtration by kieselguhr filtration.

Might "cake filter/filtration" work here?

Thanks for the answer but .. a (Meura) mash filter is something completely different than the "old-fashioned" Massefilter. The former is used for mash straining, the latter for beer clarification. It's a false friend, I suppose.
