Pressure Filters

apf 1In a variety of industrial processes, there are extremely fine particles generated that may affect tooling wear and product quality. These particles are often difficult to remove through gravity and vacuum filtration and the need to remove very small particulate.

The Filtertech Automatic Pressure Filter model APF is designed specifically for this type of application by creating a very high pressure differential across the heavier filter media.

In the operation of pressure filters, dirty liquid is pumped into the unit and dirt builds on the filter media forming a filter cake that captures the finest particulate. The pressure will continue to build making a deeper cake and forcing clean liquid through. At a predetermined high pressure point, the filter will index dirty media out replaced by fresh media and the flow is restarted. Pressure Filtration, as with all Filtertech products, can be proposed as complete system packages including tanks, pumps, heat exchanger and controls.
