PRESSURE LEAF FILTERS
Pressure leaf filters are used for polishing process streams containing low percentage w/w solids typically <5% w/w. These filters consist of a vertical or horizontal pressure vessel with a number of vertically mounted filter leaves. These leaves filter on both sides enabling a large filtration area in a relatively small vessel and plant footprint.
Cake can be discharged wet or dry.
HORIZONTAL PRESSURE LEAF FILTER
This type of pressure leaf filter has the filter leaves positioned vertically in a horizontal filter tank. These can easily be removed from the filter for manual cleaning.
Cake removal can be accomplished dry by means of pneumatic vibrator, or wet by means of an oscillating sluice header.
The filter is available in retractable bundle or shell version. Filter sizes range from 5m2 to 240m2.
