The horizontal pan filter is suitable for continuous filtration of rapid settling, free filtering solids and is designed for ease of installation and simple reliable operation. Pan filters provide rapid de-watering and efficient cake washing at large capacities.

Chemical Plant & Engineering (CPE) has pioneered design developments with horizontal pan filters that enable superior flatness tolerances to be achieved, thus eliminating installation and operating difficulties.

Horizontal pan filter features include:

  • High throughput per square meter of filtering area
  • Filtration and wash stages visible for ease of control
  • Multiple wash stages including counter current washing
  • Superior pan flatness for minimum cake heel

Horizontal pan filter capacities range from 0.7 m2 (1.0 m diameter) to 100 m2 (11.5 m diameter) filtration area.


In October 2012 CPE completed the manufacture of a 100m2 pan filter for the Alumina industry in China. Following this, another 100m2 pan filter was completed in 2013.

Chemical Plant & Engineering (a division of CEM International Pty Ltd),  has the capability and facilities to manufacture both small and large scale industrial processing equipment – including some of the largest custom designed processing equipment in the world.
