Two bars, mainly horizontal or round, which are bolted at their ends to two fixed headers with legs. This bars also support the plate pack as well as other accessory like shifting mechanisms, cloth discharge mechanisms etc.
Main Body (Head Plate) :
There are connections for sludge feed and filtrate outlet and is usually fixed to the foundation.
Half Round Body :
It houses the pull back type hydraulic cylinder and hydraulic unit.
Moving Body (Tightening Body) :
It contains the mechanical or hydraulic components that open and close the press. It also refers to end body of the filter press. It slides on the tie bars. It is moved by the hydraulic cylinder.
Hydraulic Unit :
It operates the hydraulic cylinder for open / close operation of the press.
It is composed with:
A single plate with a recessed cavity on both sides for the retention of the cake solids. A filter cloth covers the plate completely and is attached to the plate around the out side edge of the plate, normally with plastic ties, with this style of the plate, the filter cloth is used as a seal between the plates.
A single plate with a recessed cavity on both sides for the retention of the cake solids. A groove is cut into the recessed area of the chamber and the filter cloth is installed into the groove, below the outside seal surface of the plate. A separate groove is cut into the seal surface for the installation of an o-ring gasket, which provides the seal between the plates.
This is the force required to hold the press closed while under pressure from the opposing force of the incoming slurry. This force holds the plate pack closed so that the slurry will not leak from between the plates. Closing force can be supplied by means of hydraulic cylinder or mechanically.
In any filter press, there is one first plate and one end plate. First plate is attached with the feeding side main body with the connections.Similarly the end plate is placed behind the plate pack. They have one side recessed and one side plain.
