Cricketfilter® optimal filter element design
The Cricketfilter® filter element is based on a cricket bat design, giving it a unique shape which ensures a larger installed filtration area within the same vessel size in comparison to a traditional round candle shape filter element. Cleaning is vital in the filtration process and the Cricketfilter® element has been specially designed for maximising the drainability during regeneration, ensuring optimal cleanliness when Cleaning in Place (CIP) takes place.
It’s unique design, when compared to the pressure leaf filter, provides direct filtration on to filter cloth at temperatures up to 150°C.
The automated welding process utilised to produce our Cricketfilter® element results in highly accurate dimensional tolerances. This ensures a perfect fit of the filter cloth.
Cricketfilter® element shape
Due to the element shape, the Cricketfilter® has up to 40% more filtration area and can hold up to 40% more cake compared to a traditional round shaped element.

Cricketfilter® with dry and wet cake discharge
Both the Cricketfilter® with dry and with wet cake discharge have uniquely cricket bat shaped filter elements with a small internal volume that ensures minimum backwash during cake release and prevents solids settling down in the element itself.
It works with a wide variety of different filter media (1-80 μm) and intensive cleaning of the filter medium is possible.
Cricketfilter® with dry cake discharge
The Cricketfilter® with dry cake discharge is designed to be specifically suitable for the food and beverages and chemical sectors. This filter produces the least product waste, reducing residual liquid content down to 20% for specific applications. This solution is ideal if you require highly pure solids as the product.
Cricketfilter® with wet cake discharge
The Cricketfilter® with wet cake discharge has unique filter elements with small internal volume that ensures minimum backwash during cake release and prevents solids settling down in the element itself. It works with a wide variety of different filter media (1-80 µm) and intensive cleaning of the filter medium is possible.
Cricketfilter® for wet and dry cake discharge with Septum plate
The Cricketfilter® for wet and dry cake discharge with septum plate is designed to be safer to use than filter bags, as it eliminates the need to replace filter bags, thereby making it safer when opening bag filter housings.
