Pressure Filter Leaf Elements

Pressure filter leaves are the heart of every vertical and horizontal pressure leaf filter system.
They are vital to delivering an efficient filtration process, reducing maintenance and improving downtime.

Operating a vertical or horizontal pressure leaf filter system that delivers a high quality product with minimal maintenance intervals is the goal of every profitable operation.

All filter systems require regular cleaning, servicing and maintenance and can become damaged overtime causing process inefficiencies and unexpected operational costs.

Pressure filter leaf elements can become damaged due:

  • The type of product that is being filtered.
  • The manual scraping to clean the elements which varies frequency depending on the product filtered.
  • The lengths of cleaning cycles causing and the various differences in pressure used.
  • Overloading design conditions for solids loading.
  • Not to mention of course that all elements are subject to natural wear and tear overtime.
  • Cake bridging can bend and/or deform the elements.
  • The wrong use of the vibrator system can also damage de pressure leaf filter elements

Amafilter® have been producing vertical and horizontal pressure filter leaves for over 50 years and have built the expertise and knowhow to produce high quality leaves that can perform efficiently in all filtration applications, whether hazardous chemical applications or non-hazardous ones.
