The filtration chambers of the filter presses with frames consist of two types of filter plates: frame and filtrating.
The frame defines a filtration chamber and it is closed on both sides by the adjacent filtration plates with drainage draining filtrate.
The thickness of the frame plate determines the thickness of the filtration cake – it usually ranges between 10 – 50 mm.
After passing clothes installed on the filtration plates, the filtrate is drained by drainage to channels drilled inside the plate and it is discharged out of the filter press.
The working pressure usually ranges between 6 – 15 bars.
Fields of use:
The filter press with frames and filter plates is presently used very rarely and it is often replaced by chamber filter presses.
