Plate and Frame
Plate and Frame are a predecessor to
Recessed Plates. The
chamber is formed by a flat plate on each side of a frame. Cake
is collected in the frame. This type of plate is usually used
for polishing applications when filtration area is more
Our Recessed Plates are designed for 7, 15, and 20 bar operation
(100/225/300psi). They are available for sidebar or overhead
press designs. Mounting hangers or side handles can accommodate
any brand of filter.
There are 3 basic types of Recessed Plates; Open
Filtrate, Closed Filtrate
Recess Plate - Open Filtrate
Recess Plate - Open Filtrate
Recess Plate - Open Filtrate:
An Open Filtrate Recess Plate, discharges filtrate on one side of the plate or via
vertical holes along the underside of the Filter Plate.
Recess Plate - Closed Filtrate:
Virtually identical to the open filtrate but with the
addition of corner pads. Holes in these corners form a pipe or
tube and collect the filtrate, which is discharged to a manifold
at the feed end of the Filter Press. Spigots may be used to
examine the filtrate externally.
containing 'O' ring around the sealing edge and filtrate holes
form a tight seal when the Plate Pack is closed in combination
with Filter Cloths.
Plate patterns come in 3 distinct drainage patterns; pipped, elongated
pip and grooved. The pipped design is more common on Press
Plates. This design provides better support for Filter Cloth, allowing
filtrate to discharge along the base of the plate with the least
and Replaceable Membrane Plates
Replaceable Membrane Plates
are available. Membrane
Filter Press Plates have a chamber below the drainage surface
that may be inflated. The common method used is water pressure,
which is generated by pumping into the squeeze cavity to inflate
the face of the plate against the Filter Cake. Air may also be
Membrane Plates are used to reduce the cake moisture
content or shorten the filtration cycle time. Two types of
Membrane Plate designs are used; Fixed and Replaceable. Mixed
pack Membranes are the most common configuration (one Recessed
Plate then one Membrane Plate alternate in the press plate
pack). The final product produces savings in the overall plate
Membrane Plates usually operate at a feed pressure of up to 7
bar and squeeze pressure to 15 bar.
Fixed Membranes is manufactured by moulding a membrane
face and a core plate separately. The face is then joined into
the core by heat welding to form a homogeneous plate. Although
this type of membrane is suitable for many designs, it has
particular advantages in food applications where the lack of
joints will prevent contamination.
Replaceable Membranes use a Polypropylene core, which is
machined to accept the connection and seal of a rubber membrane.
These faces are easily changed. EPDM Thermoplastic and other are
used for specific conditions. Savings in operations can be
achieved in difficult environments, and the membrane's superior
flexibility make it the best design for many installations.
These replacement type Membranes are used extensively in the
