Horizontal pressure leaf filter RBW

The Filtration Group horizontal pressure leaf filter RBW is a pressure filter with a large specific filtration area due to the shape of the filter elements. We have been building these filters for more than 60 years.

The design of the filter is state of the art. More than 10000 vertical and horizontal pressure leaf filters have been sold worldwide for various applications so far.

The double sided filter leaves are made from stainless steel. The rigid filter leaves have five layers of stainless steel wire screen. The top layer of screen depends on the application. The filter leaves are individually mounted on the central manifold, which allows the removal of any or all of the filter leaves easily and quickly.

The horizontal pressure leaf filter can be built in larger units than the vertical type. This pressure leaf filter is for cake discharge equipped with an oscillating sluice pipe, which is positioned above the filter leaves. Cloth covered filter leaves or metal gauze filter leaves can be used. The top layer of mesh depends on the application. The double sided filter leaves are individually mounted on the central manifold, which allows the removal of any or all of the filter leaves easily and quickly.

Pressure leaf system advantages

The pressure leaf filter is an enclosed filtration system and can be
fully automated. This filter produces a high filtrate clarity after the
clarification run and is also suitable for all kinds of filter aids. The
regeneration time between the filtration cycles is short. Horizontal
pressure leaf filters can also be delivered as tandem units to save
floor space. The pressure leaf filter itself has no rotating parts, keeping maintenance to a minimum. These advantages result in an economical filtration solution.
