Steel Filter Plates for when the risk is too high for Poylpropylene

Replacement and Refurbishment of Filter Plates

Steel – Polypropylene Covered Membrane & Recessed Filter Plates

Originally designed to replace the discontinued Rubber & Steel Filter Plates of Edwards & Jones (E&J). We are pleased to announce our new 2m x 2m Steel Polypropylene Membrane and Recessed Chamber Filter Plates for robust applications.

Applications: Sewerage Sludges, Clay Filtration, Mining, Minerals, Cement Dewatering

The filter plates are constructed with a machined steel body plate of very tight tolerances to assure consistent flatness and uniform plate thickness. The replaceable membranes are of polypropylene (PPH) construction. The center feed port is machined and fitted with stainless steel sealing flanges.

We have plates in service and are receiving positive feedback from our customers. The plates typically offer a volume increase of 10-15 percent and a filtration area increase of 15 percent over polypropylene filter plates for the same filter press foot print.

The plates are also designed to take the pumping/feed pressure of 16 bar (225psi). The plates are designed to be a direct replacement for the old Edwards & Jones (E&J) plates, Fletcher plates, R&B Ductile Iron, and Passavant Ductile Iron plates.

Membrane and Recessed Chamber Plates E&j (Edwards and Jones / Fletcher)
** No Longer Available** The discontinued SRRM (Steel Reinforced Rubber Moulded) Recessed Chamber plate delivers the same mechanical strength and resilient rubber covering as the diaphragm plates to resist acidic and alkaline conditions.

Filtrate take off can be either internal via corner ports or external from the side edge of the plate. A full size range is available from 500mm sq through to 2000mm sq and can be retrofitted to either sidebar or overhead beam filter presses.

The cylindrical pip filtration surface, pioneered by Edwards & Jones, offers a 60% free drainage area behind the filter cloth, as well as extending the cloth life.
