Horizontal Pan Filters

Horizontal Pan Filters

The horizontal pan filter has found its main application in the phosphoric acid industry and, to some extent, in the washing of phosphate rock. Imagine a pie cut into 10 slices. Each slice has a flat (pie-shaped) filter cloth in the bottom. As the pan filter turns, it fills up with slurry. While the pan filter turns, a vacuum sucks the liquid through the cake, drying it. The dried cake is either scrapes off by scroll discharge or dumped by a tilt pan.

Typical Applications:

Menardi offers all styles and sizes of pan filter cloths. These can be either heat or cold cut and are almost always woven polypropylene.
