Chamber filter presses are designed for filtration and dehydration of already concentrated process water suspensions. The sediment already concentrated in the obliquely-arranged lamellar clarifier is pumped to the chamber filter press by means for further dehydration by means of a special diaphragm pump. The filtrate water drains through a droplet channel during the pressing process and is returned to the production circuit. The particles contained in the process water suspension are retained between the filter cloths. The degree of drying of the filter cakes can be individually adjusted and is monitored by a water sensor.
If the setting for the degree of drying of the filter cakes is reached, the pressure in the chamber filter press is released through a relief valve and the filter press opens. The filter cakes fall, with the assistance of automatic shaking by means of a pneumatic cylinder, to the container arranged below the chamber filter press.
The press then closes again automatically and a new cycle can commence.
Chamber filter presses are the most effective and prevalent system in the area of application of the residual moisture dehydration. The drying rate, degree of drying and automation are significantly higher than with bag drying stations.
- Hydraulic opening and closing of the filter plates
- Positioning sensor for plate package
- Hydraulic system pressure make-up via pressure sensor of up to 250 bar
- Compressed air diaphragm pump for abrasive sludge for filling the filter plates
- Pressure relief of the filter press via 3-way valve
- Vibration bar with pneumatic cylinder
The automatic control of KMP filter presses takes place with a Siemens PLC. Operation and visualisation of the parameters take place via a touchscreen display. The press can be adjusted perfectly to the your operational requirements with the comprehensive parameter settings.
Operation of the filter press is possible in automatic mode and manually. In case of a fault, the control unit issues an error message in text format.
Our ECS KMP software is developed in-house and based on our knowledge of process water preparation and our practical experience gathered for over 20 years.
