Starch Plate Frame Filter Press is a Intermittent pressure filtration equipment for solid liquid separation. Filter Press also name as plate frame Filter press, plate filter. It`s consist of frame, Filter Plate pack, filter medium (Filter Cloth or filter paper), pressing system, electric control cabinet.
Features Of Starch Plate Frame Filter Press
Easy to operate and maintain.
Can use filter paper as filtering medium to realize ultra-filtration.
Lowest running cost.
The working of the plate and frame press is explained as that the slurry enters the frame which are marked by two dots from the feed channels and passes through the filter medium on to the surface of the plates which are marked by one dot.
The solids form a filter cake and remains in the frame. The thickness of the cake is half of the frame because on each side of the frame filtration occur.
Thus the two filter cakes are formed which meet eventally in the centre of the frame. In general there will be an optimum thickness of the filter cake for any slurry depending on the solids content in the slurry and the resistance of the filter cake.
The filtrate drains between the projections on the surface of the plates and the ecae from the outlets. As the filtration proceeds the resistance of the cake increases and the filtration rate decreases.
At a certain point it is preferable to stop the process rather than continuing at very low flow rates. The press is emptied and the cycle is restarted.
