AUTOMATIC PLATE SHIFTER
It is the most important part of our automatic filer press, it will pull all filer plates one by one.
The automatic plate shifter eliminates the need for operator intervention during filter cake discharge. It’s used in conjunction with our Full Automation Control System, or with custom PLC controls, to provide the highest level of filter press automation available to save labor cost and costs.
An automatic plate shifter is desirable when there are multiple filter presses installed in one location, where operator contact with the filter cake is undesirable, or where a dedicated operator is not available to shift each filter plate every time the filter press is opened. The automatic plate shifter features continuously adaptive shifting speed to optimize filter cake discharge times. Shifter speed is varied to provide quick and smooth operation.
In applications where the filter cake may not discharge immediately when shifting the plates due to adhesion to the filter cloth, a pneumatic “bump” mechanism is available as an attachment to the automatic plate shifter. When the bump option is included, the lift mechanism attached to the filter plate handle on that side of the press and drops it. The force of the filter plate handle impacting the sidebar knocks the filter cake loose from the cloth.
Automatic Filter Cloth Washer
The clean water will pump into the automatic washing system through high-pressure piston pump, to wash and smooth all filter clothes in automatic way. So it can increase the filtering speed and enlarge the life of filter cloth.
Our automatic plate shifters can also be worked with an automated filter cloth washer. Our design is the most compact and efficient on the market. It takes up a minimal amount of space above and around the filter press. It is designed with a variable speed drive so the cloth washer can run fast for a heavy rinse or more slowly for very soiled cloths.
