the design requirements of the plate and frame filter press
One type of industrial filter is the plate-and-frame filter press. Figure 1 shows an industrial filter press, while Figure 2 shows a large-scale water filtration press with the filter cake (filtered solids) collected on the ground.. The filter press in our laboratory is significantly smaller, but the operating principles are exactly the same. A plate and frame filter press is the most fundamental design, and may be referred to as a membrane plate filter. This type of filter press consists of many alternating plates and frames assembled with the supports of a pair of rails, with filter membranes inserted between each plate-frame pair.
