Manufacturing of reinforced filter leaf
Filter leaves to original or improved specifications
The design and construction of filter leaves is probably the most critical part of a filter. The filter element is the actual heart of each filter, and many problems with pressure leaf filters are caused by improper leaf constructions and design. The performance of a filter leaf highly depends on the design and the choice of:
- Filter media
- Drainage and support screen
- Binder and closure
Filtration Group Process Systems often improves the original design of the filter leaves to improve the performance of the filter, resulting in satisfied customers worldwide.
