The Mitsubishi Schneider Filter is a new type of pressurized filter comprising a stack of plates with each plate covered with filter paper or filter cloth. The slurry is fed into filtration chamber of each plate through inlet manifold and hose and then it is filtrated under the pressure given by the mechanical jack mounted on the top of filtering unit. The cake is formed on the surface of filter paper or filter cloth on each filter plate whilst the filtrated liquid is discharged through the hose and manifold of discharge side. Once the filtration cycle is completed the plate stack is opened and the cake is automatically removed.
Forming uniform cake, the horizontal plates allow precision filtering and the Mitsubishi Schneider Filter is used principally to recover clear filtrate. It can also be used for the recovery of the solids from low density slurry and also in the treatment of high viscosity liquids.
The Mitsubishi Schneider Filter is an innovative and labor-saving filter that realizes automatic replacement of the filter paper during filtration, formerly considered a very time consuming process, and as such it lends itself to full-scale factory automation
