Application & Process :

Zero Hold Up Filter Press uses for filtration of liquid by separating solid from the liquid. Adhering cGMP and FDA compliance, out filter presses equipped with gear pump, centrifugal pump or lobe pump as specific process requirements. Filtration assembly has modern design to achieve optimum process output. Perforated screens, filter plates, spacers and filter pad organized in such a way to obtain hassle free productivity.

The Zero Hold Up Filter Press mostly uses for syrup and suspension filtration in pharmaceutical industry. Equipment find usage in other wide range of industries such as distillery, food ingredients, organic chemicals, resin, ink, oil and many more. Filter pad and disc organized in a

manner which separates solid cake from the flow of liquid. Dome structure at top enables easily removing of cartridge assembly for cleaning of pad and cake removal. Variety of pad can be use depending upon different product types requirements. Features of continuous process and zero holding material within chamber named it Zero Hold Up Filter Press.

For Optimum Solution of : Kneading, Dispersing & Mixing for High Viscous material

A zero hold up filter press typically consists of a stainless steel or other corrosion-resistant material housing. The housing contains a series of filter plates with filter media such as cloth, paper, or screens. These plates are stacked together and held in place with a hydraulic or manual clamping mechanism. The filter plates have grooves and channels to allow for the flow of the liquid through the filter media.

Filtration: The mixture passes through the filter media, while the solids are retained on the surface of the filter plates. The liquid, or filtrate, flows through the filter media and exits the press.

Washing: Once the filtration is complete, the filter cake (accumulated solids) on the filter plates can be washed with a suitable solvent or rinse liquid to ensure maximum product recovery.

Discharging: After washing, the filter cake is discharged from the filter press by releasing the clamping mechanism and removing the plates.

Size and Model : Zero hold up filter presses are available in various sizes and models to accommodate different filtration requirements. The size of a filter press is typically specified by the surface area of the filter plates, which determines the filtration capacity. Common sizes range from a few square meters to several hundred square meters of filtration area.

Different models may feature variations in design, such as the number of filter plates, the type of filter media, the method of operation (manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic), and additional features like cake washing capabilities or cake discharge mechanisms.

When selecting a zero hold up filter press, it’s important to consider the specific application, desired filtration capacity, and process requirements to choose the appropriate size and model that best meets your needs.

In summary, zero hold up filter presses are valuable equipment for efficient separation of solids and liquids in various industries. Their robust construction, minimal product hold-up, and ability to achieve high product recovery make them an essential component of many filtration processes.
