Description

Horizontal pressure leaf filter Retractable Shell

The horizontal 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.

  • Big filtration surface,
  • Easy to clean filter plates,
  • Heating jacket in order to prevent solidification
  • The pressure leaf filter itself has no rotating parts, thus keeping maintenance to a minimum[/su_list]

These advantages result in an economical filtration solution. For cake discharge the carriage with the filter leaves is driven outside the tank with an electric or hydraulic system. With a Retractable Shell system, the filter leaves are exposed by moving the tank away from the bundle.

The bayonet ring is opened hydraulically. The cake discharge is easily done with the filter opened.
