The Pressure Leaf Filter is a MS Vertical Vessel with Filter Leaves inside. The leaves are mounted vertically on a common manifold pipe, through which the filtered liquid flows out. The Filter leaves filter on both sides and hence a large filtration area is obtained in a relatively small vessel. Drying of cake is done with the help of Steam/Compressed air and the dried cake is shaken off the filter leafs with the help air actuated vibrator.
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.
