Horizontal Plate Type Filter Press


Horizontal Plate Type Filter Press also known as Sparkler Filter Press, redefine filtration through compactness, ease of operation and robust engineering process. This type of filter presses suited for filtration process of syrup, liquid, chemicals, oils and beverages etc. The Horizontal Type Filter presses are totally enclosed and leak proof assembly. the product to be filtered is fed in the shell with the help of a suitable pump under positive pressure, wherein liquid flows through the filter plates placed inside in downwards direction and finds its way through opening on sides of the filter press. The product enters the plates from peripheral holes. As the liquid pressure increases, the Filter media holds the foreign particles and allows only clear filtrate to pass through the central channel formed by interlocking pressure cups to the outlet. Filtration is continued until the cake holding capacity of the unit is reached or until the filtrate rate becomes too slow owing to cake resistance. The impurities are retained on filter media & clear filtrate comes out from the bottom outlet. The Scavenging arrangement provided on the filter ensures removal of the entire filtered liquid.
There are various combinations available with different diameter & number of plates to get the desired filtration area and cake holding capacity.

Special Features:

  • Horizontal Plate Filter Press is enclosed construction, preventing evaporation, oxidation, leakage and fumes escaping from product.
  • Filter plates are available in two sizes. Deep plate for large percentage of cake holding capacity and Shallow plate for small percentage of cake holding capacity.
  • The horizontal filter plate and even thickness of cake, prevents the cake dropping as well as cracking, thus assuring better filtrate quality.
  • The Filtration area and cake holding capacity can be increased or decreased according to requirement.
