Horizontal Pressure Leaf Filters are ideal for batch process applications requiring high flow rates with low solids removal. Horizontal Pressure Leaf Filter consists of the horizontal tank with a removable cover. For sealing of the framing joint and the cover a spacer is used, which is tightened by turning of a bayonet-type ring by means of two hydrocylinders of the valve. Taking of the cover is performed by means of the hydrocylinder also.
The horizontal vessel orientation is the most common type of pressure leaf filter. This arrangement allows for the greatest filtration area. Vessel sizes are available up to 2000mm in diameter providing up to 200 m2 of filtration area. All horizontal filters use vertical filter leaves.Our filters are custom built & optimized for each application, and are specifically engineered to operate with the minimum amount of maintenance.
The horizontal pressure leaf filter is an enclosed filtration system and can be fully automated. This filter produces a high filtrate clarity after the clarification run and is also suitable for all kinds of filter aids. The regeneration time between the filtration cycles is short. Horizontal pressure leaf filters can also be delivered as tandem units to save floor space. The pressure leaf filter itself has no rotating parts, keeping maintenance to a minimum. These advantages result in an economical filtration solution.
Various materiel are available, eg. stainless steel, carbon steel with rubber, PP, PVDF lining, monel, inconel , etc. ‘O’ ring sealing are available in BUNA-N, Viton, EPDM, Nitrile, Silicon etc.
