Chamber filter press X920 – Western Filter

At the beginning of the filtration cycle, the press and the filter plates are closed by a (hydraulic) locking cylinder. The closing cylinder presses the filter plates against each other via the pressure plate and increases the hydraulic pressure accordingly up to the required nominal closing pressure. Due to the design, a chamber is formed between the individual filter plates, which represents the process chamber. The suspension to be filtered is pumped into the chambers with a suitable feed pump through the turbidity inlet at the feed stand and concentrated there. Depending on the respective application, the filter plates are lined with special filter cloths which visibly retain the solids during the flow, taking into account the process characteristics.
