Pressure Leaf Filters
Filterfab provides a full range of products for pressure leaf filters including new filter leafs, rebuilt and recovered filter leafs, synthetic and metal mesh leaf covers, gaskets, and replacement parts.
Pressure leaf filters are ideal for processes that demand high flow rates and have low percentage of solids. They operate on a batch basis where the filter cake must be discharged and the leafs cleaned while the filter is offline. The filters can operate with both dry and wet cake discharge depending on how the cake will be used or disposed.
Filterfab has expertise with all types of horizontal and vertical pressure filters. We offer vertical and horizontal pressure leaf filters. Horizontal pressure filters are the most commonly operated due to the ease of operation and cleaning. There are also more versions of horizontal pressure filters due to the operation and installation methods. Horizontal pressure filters can have fixed or retractable shells, each with different advantages. The retractable shell allows the entire leaf pack to be exposed for inspection, cleaning, maintenance, and replacement. The fixed shell, with a retractable head, allows for a wider variety of piping connections and work better in some abrasive and corrosive conditions.
