Automatic filter press is more advanced than hydraulic side beam filter presses. The automatic filter press also use hydraulic system to close plates, and also is a kind hydraulic filter press, but it adds an automatic plate shifting device to realize automatic filter cake discharging. After a filtering process finished and the cakes are formed, cakes will be discharged automatically, and no need worker operation.
For some big filter press, the filter plates must be very heavy, so it’s not easy to open filter plates and discharge cake by manpower. Now the automatic plate shifting device will be very necessary. If the capacity is huge, the automatic filter press can greatly short the cycle time to improve the efficiency.
The automatic plate shifting device of auto filter press includes motor, the chains and the plate shifter. While discharging, the PLC control the motor to drive the plate shifter with chains. Then filter cakes are discharged one by one to realize automatic discharging. So it can improve operation efficiency and reduce the labor intensity.
Specially, the device uses variable frequency motor, which can adjust the filter cake discharging speed. Normally the frequency range is 10-150HZ. More info pls contact us.
