Leaf Filters are high-quality systems that can be used for a multitude of batch and continuous filtration processes. The application has of a number of filter leaves positioned in a horizontal or vertical filter housing. The fluid to be filtered flows through the filter medium which covers both sides of the filter leaf. Restrained solids remain on the filter medium producing a filter cake. Vertical Leaf Filters have a high filtration area versus vessel volume ratio. The pressure leaf filter is typically suitable for fluids with high solid contents.
