The upper chamber is Feed chamber and the lower one is Filtrate chamber. A suitable reusable filter cloth is operational in between the chambers. Depending upon the configuration, one of the chamber is kept fixed and the other moved up & down. The moving chamber is assisted with locking arrangement. The operation of filter can be broadly divided into 4 stages. Filtration, cake washing, dewatering and discharge. Additional sequences can be adopted depending upon requirement
Feed and filtrate chamber are held pressed with each other with reusable filter cloth in between them. Liquid Is fed in the feed chamber. Suspended solids start getting accumulated on the filter cloth. Clear filtrate passes into the filtrate chamber and flows out. After sufficient build up of cake sensed by pressure switch or the time limit. whichever happens earlier, filtration cycle comes to an end.
Cake wash liquid is fed Into feed chamber for effecting replacement cake washing. Washed liquid can be collected separately. Multiple type cake washing can also be done.
The formed cake inside the feed chamber is squeezed either pneumatically or hvdro-pneurnancatlv. All the held up liquid inside chamber and the voids of suspended solids is removed out and taken for further processing. Hot air can now be fed into the chamber for further drying of solids.
The locking dts-enqaqas the two chambers. Drive motor starts to discharge Out the solids. After complete discharge the two chambers close in again to start the next cycle.
