Filter Press Plate completely seals for proper operation.

Press Release Summary:

Membrane filter plate in empty chamber design utilizes detachable membrane made from elastomeric compounds. Sealing system between membrane body and membrane is identical on both sealing edge and stayboss supports. This reliably separates filtrate, wash, and squeeze mediums during complete filtration cycle and also prevents drainage of squeeze medium within filter press when opened for cake discharge. Adjustable material properties enable use in almost all filtration applications.

Original Press Release:

Filter Press Membrane Diaphragm Filter Plate System

A newly developed membrane filter plate in the empty chamber design utilizing a detachable membrane made from elastomeric compounds will further expand the Klinkau filter plate product line.

The new product is the result of many years of experience with detachable membrane plates in combination with our own raw material developments.

The new sealing system between the membrane body and membrane is identical on both, the sealing edge and the stayboss supports. Therefore, no additional sealing parts are required. It reliably separates filtrate, wash-and squeeze mediums during the complete filtration cycle. Additionally, the system successfully prevents the drainage of the squeeze medium within the filter press when opened for cake discharge.

The design of the membrane filter plate allows special solutions:
CGR version (leak free)
Different feed eye positions
Special designs for high squeezing pressures up to 30 bar
Antistatic membrane for explosion proof areas
Viton membranes for application temperatures between -20 deg C up to +105 deg C

Individual adjustable material properties, particularly in different material hardness'es enable the membrane plate to be used in almost all filtration applications.

Technical Details
The new membrane filter plate is non-sensitive against high plate pack closing forces as well as high temperatures due to the specific dimension of the sealing edge and the particular design of the stayboss supports.

The special design of the pips and the geometry of the drainage-channels allow for an optimal filtrate flow, efficient cake washing result and prevent filter cloth damages.

A newly developed sealing system on the sealing edge, stayboss supports and feed eye area allows for the most difficult filtration, cake washing and squeezing applications
No drainage of the squeeze medium when the filter press is opened for cake discharge
Membrane replacement is easy and allows safe handling even after years of operation
Membranes made of individually selected and application-specific adjusted materials such as Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE), PP, Antistatic Polypropylene, Viton (FPM), EPDM, NBR Membrane body plate and chamber plate made of individually selected materials such as PP, Nylon, PVDF and Aluminum.
