FILTRATION

STRING DISCHARGE FILTERS

String discharge filters allow solids and liquids to be separated during filtration.

 

The main components of a string discharge filter are:

  • rotary drum
  • vacuum distribution system
  • agitator
  • cake discharge device

 

This type of filter is suitable for treating suspensions containing solids that adhere easily in a thin, compact cake.

 

In a plant, the strings are usually installed around the drum and, along with the filtration cloth, it transports the cake to the drain and then returns to the drum using the return rollers.
