Filter Press FPS – Simultaneous Opening Filter Press
The FPS model is characterized by the level of total automation. Also called UNMANNED FILTER because it does not require personnel, even during the cake unloading phase. It is characterized by extreme versatility and speed in the unloading phases thanks to the simultaneous opening of the entire plate pack. Depending on the length of the filter, it is also possible to have sequential openings of multiple plates packs.
In order to use this Filter Press, it is necessary to perform a laboratory test and sometimes even in the field to check whether the characteristics of the product to be filtered are suitable for the use of this level of total automation. Particularly anti-adhesive filtering fabric and depth of the filtering chambers must be studied which allow the optimal detachment of the cake and allow to leave the filtering cloth clean.
To improve the downloadability of the panel, the Filter Press is also equipped with a plate vibration device.
Available with fixed volume concamerated chamber plates and variable volume membrane plates in different configurations: full membrane, chamber and membrane mixed pack, interchangeable membrane and membrane block, central or angular feeding hole, according to the different needs of the product to be filtered.
Depending on the filtration cycle required, the Filter Press can be equipped with piping and instrumentation to increase the level of automation of the production process in which the Filter Press must be inserted.
