The filter press
The filter press basically consists of a number of chamber filter plates (also referred to as recessed filter plates) mounted vertically on, and between, two sidebars. The support bars are connected at one end to a fixed head or "feed head", and at the other end to a "closed head". Through a closing arrangement on the closing head, usually a hydraulic ram, the recessed plates are compressed tightly together between the feed head and a third head known as the "movable" or "follow head", thus forming a compact filtering unit made up of the series of filter chambers. The surface of both sides of the filter plate has a drainage surface in the form of ribs or grooves, pyramidal shaped or raised cylinders to allow the filtrate to drain behind the filter cloth. The plates have drainage ports connected to *corner eyes*, which carry the filtrate drainage ports to the fixed end of the filter press. A filter plate transport mechanism is mounted along each side bar and can be driven either hydraulically or electrically.
