Wash-Off Horizontal Plate Filters are designed for applications allowing the use of synthetic cloth or wire mesh filter media. The advantage to this filter is that the cartridge can be cleaned without disassembling. Cartridges are cleaned by removing them from the tank, pivoting them on a frame leaving the plates in a vertical orientation, permitting cake removal by vibration, tapping or washing off.
Wash off Filters can be fully automated and the filter cake can be removed in closed position. For a slurry cake discharge a sluice system will be implemented. For a dry cake discharge we make use of a vibration system in combination with a screw conveyer.
Material of construction
Standard materials of construction include carbon- and several grades of stainless steel.
Internal lining can be applied in rubber, PFA, PVDF or other linings. Plates are manufactured in Polypropylene, PVDF, carbon- and a selection of stainless steels.
Standard tank construction accommodates 8 bar working pressure at 100°C. Higher pressures and
temperatures are available on request. Allowable pressure difference across the fi lter plates 3.5
Standard flanged connections according DIN or ANSI. Other desired specifi cation on request.
Pressure vessel code and inspections
