The design and construction of filter leaves is probably the most critical part of a filter. The filter element is the actual heart of each filter, and many problems with pressure leaf filters are caused by improper leaf constructions and design. The performance of a filter leaf highly depends on the design and the choice of:

  1. Filter media 
  2. Drainage and support screen 
  3. Binder and closure 
  4. Outlet

Bolted construction for molten sulfur filtration

For some industries where heavy-duty filter leaves are needed we can offer reinforced leaves with bolted construction, stronger frames and an extended lifetime up to 20 years.

Better leaves lower the costs of ownership

Standard filter leaves employ a 5 ply construction that ensures optimal filtration performance and durability.

Our experience has shown that the 5-ply construction offers you lower ownership costs over time.
