Filter Press Feed Pump

Filter press feed pump selection will greatly affect the performance of the filter press system.The filter press feed pump is the true “WORK HORSE” of the entire filter press system.

Filter press pump selection and pump maintenance is a key to “on-line time”.

The pump section process includes the analysis of:

 

    • Slurry type and characteristics
    • Filtration objectives
    • Filter press operating pressure (100-300 psi)
    • Filter cake use: product or waste?
    • Filter press size
    • Filter plate design: plate type and porting, cake thickness.

Filter Press Pump

 

Since 1976, Universal Filtration & Pumping has been specifically designing and selecting filter press pumps for some of the very largest filter press systems in the world.

Some of these presses / pumps operate at filtration pressure up to 450 psi (30 bar) and initial flow rates of 2000 gpm are not so unusual.

Our program of positive displacement pumps covers the full range of press sizes from the 470mm to the 2m x 2m.

We offer the simple design of hydraulically operated Ram Pumps which were first developed for pumping the thick abrasive ceramic slurries for the pottery industry in England in the 1940’s and the Piston Membrane Pumps which evolved for feeding the presses in the 1960’s.

For those of you who have used Progressive Cavity Pumps for feeding the Filter Presses, history shows you spent excessively on maintaining the rotors & stators and the down time cost you filtration time.

Air Diaphragm Pumps are inexpensive, however the power cost of running the air compressor should be part of the analysis.

Centrifugal Pumps are sometimes the correct selection for filtration processes and we often utilize a combination of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps to offer the optimum design of a complete pumping system.

Give Universal Filtration and Pumping Solutions a call to allow us to assist you with the design of your Filter Press Feed Pump system.
