1. Filter plate pack close
After activating the start switch, the hydraulic power pack pumps oil to the hydraulic cylinder which clamps all the filter plates together and forms each filtration chambers.
Slurry is pumped via the feeding port to the filtration chambers. The solids remain and the filtrate passes through the filter cloth.
Pressurized water is jnjected behind the diaphragms. The filter cake is compressed and further dewatered.
4. Filter Plate Pack Open
After completion of filter cake compression process, the hydaulic pump operates automatically for driving cylinder and opening the filter plate pack.
5. Cake Discharge
When all the filter plates are opened, all the filter cloths containing discharged cake travel downwards and filter cake is discharged.
6. Filter Cloth Washing
After the filter cakes are discharged, the cake doors close and all the filter cloths are washed on the return travel.
Compression Pressure (Diaphragm)
Frame: Structural steel and stainless steel
Filter plate: PP
Other materials are available to suit customers’ requests.
Cake wash system
Wash water passes through the filter cake, foreign substances in cake are removed or precious substances in case are extracted.
Normal cake wash: Wash water is fed into each chamber from the top feeding port, passing through the cake and discharged via the filtrate port.
Back cake wash: The wash water is fed from filtrate port of one plate, it passes through the cake and then discharged from the filtrate port of the next plate.
