Filtration of oils is critical to the Process. Depending on the oil, capacity and process we design and recommend complete Filtration Systems.
Our product range includes:
The conventional Filter Presses used in small/medium scale oil mills
In this type of Filter Press, the machine faces or rims are almost level with the filtering surface. A separate frame is used between them to form the chamber. The thickness of this frame determines the depth of the chamber and total cubic contents of the press. The cloths are not fastened to the plates, but are only hung over them and nipped between the faces of the plate and frame to form a tight joint. The filter cloth is thus easily removed for cleaning.
This type is recommended for filtering oils with the use of filter aids such as fuller earth, activated carbon etc.

Pressure Leaf Filters are used for filtration of oils with varying solid concentration.
Slurry is pumped under pressure into the vessel. Leaves are stacked whether horizontally or vertically. The leaves have constructed from a fine mesh with ribs on both sides to allow free flow of filtration towards the neck. Space between leaves can be varied depending on process and thickness of cake desired.
In vertical pressure leaf Filter the vessels are filled with a bottom cake discharge. The entire state of Leaves is vibrated for an instant release of cake. The cover of the vessel is pivoted so that it can be swing away to facilitate the removal of Leaves. Precoating of leaves is done to assist in the filtration.
All vessels are made as per Standard Practice and Codes. Vessels can be offered in Stainless Steel or Carbon Steel. Leaves are fine mesh to international Standard. Ease of operation and maintenance is ensured.
