Horizontal Plate Filter Press

Horizontal-Plate-Filter-Press Specification


  • Designed for zero hold up
  • Single pass filtration with no solid bypass
  • Full batch recovery, no separate scavenging systems needed
  • Uniform distribution of cake on each plate
  • Uniform filter bed formation
  • Easy removal & cleaning
  • Central feeding thereby reducing cost of expensive solvents
  • Proper sealing which allows the filtration of volatile, toxic and inflammable products


Leistung’s horizontal plate filter press is enclosed construction, preventing evaporation, oxidation, leakage, and fumes escaping from products. The Leistung make horizontal plate filter press consist SS shell & top cover to give pressure tight enclosure with Rathmann styled clamp. Plate pack assembly can be removed manually for cake disposal. The plate pack assembly consists plates, perforated screen, filter media & interlocking cups.The entire assembly complete with pump & piping connection can be mounted on SS trolley if required. It can be jacketed for hot filtration. The unfiltered liquid is centrally fed under pressure from the bottom inlet. The liquid spreads out equally on each plate fitted with filter media. Filter plates are available in different sizes depending on the percentage of cake holding capacity. Solid remain on the filter media and clear filtrate flows through precisely made holes on side of plates and collects in shell thereby coming out through the outlet. In this process, there is an equal distribution of solid on each plate. The cake is then cleaned from filter media & used again for filtration process. The cake can be dried maximum by applying air or insert gas at the end of the cycle. The filtration area & cake holding capacity can be increased or decreased as per customer requirement by selecting an appropriate range of filter press.
