Mechanical Plate Movement
Mechanisation of the filter press invariably includes our plate movement system which is infinitely variable for use on our sidebar or overhead design and also fully adjustable to accommodate polypropylene or cast iron plates. A unique feature of our system is the hold back facility so that only one plate at a time is transferred with a positive stacking when deposited.
Manually located, pneumatically operated plate movement system
Discharging the filter cakes from a filter press can be assisted by means of our Manually located, pneumatically operated plate movement system . This device consists of a frame moving along a runway track, above the filter press, supported on a trolley system. on each side of the press supported from the frame is a hinged side arm. these side arms are linked together to ensure that they pivot simultaneously when pulled from the operating side. at the bottom of each arm is a pneumatic cylinder which is fitted with separating forks that locate between the filter plate arms.
In operation the pneumatic cylinders extend and retract together, assisting the operator in plate movement to discharge the filter cakes.
