Fundamental Tower Press Component
The core of any tower press filter is a plate pack that consists of a different number of filter plates and frames. Inside the filter, the plates are stacked on top of each other and form a plate pack. The filter plate is a basic component for solid-liquid separation. The undisturbed performance of each plate is crucial for the tower press output.
The steel plate with a frame presents the base on which other elements are mounted:
When connected to another filter plate, they form a filtration chamber. During the filtration cycle, the slurry is pumped inside the chamber where it is dewatered until it forms a dry cake and filtrate is drained out. Dewatering processes include not only high pressures, but also aggressive slurries, difficult to handle. That is why not only the filter plates but all Flowrox spare parts are made to last and deliver the most optimal performance.
Pressure-resistant filter plates and frames
To resist heavy-duty conditions, filter plates and frames must be made from strong, resistant materials. Flowrox plates have been redesigned and are made to perform well in tough conditions. When installed properly, they do not prematurely bend under high pressures and have a long lifetime. High-quality Flowrox filter plates reduce the total cycle time and increase the filtration capacity.
