Vertical pressure leaf filter VERSIS
Amafilter – LFC Lochem (Filtration Group Process Systems) Versis pressure leaf filter is a vertical 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 Versis range incorporates several product improvements making the design 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 filter cake can be dried with compressed air, inert gas or steam. The cake is discharged by a pneumatic vibrator, through a large butterfly valve.
Pressure leaf system advantages
The Versis 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. The vertical filters require only a small footprint and are standard equipped with a cover lift assembly. The design of the pressure leaf filter keeps maintenance to a minimum. These advantages result in an economical filtration solution.
