Horizontal Plate Filter
Quick cleaning wash-off filter
The WO is a wash-off horizontal leaf filter where the filter plates pull as a unit from the vessel and do not require disassembly for hosing off the cake outside the tank. Either welded wire mesh or cloth bag media is used. The WOT or wash-off tilt filter has an internal sluice header and tilts from the vertical tank position to the horizontal for washing-off cake without opening the tank. Both the WO and the WOT Filters are for processes utilizing cloth, synthetic or wire mesh filter media. Precoating, usually with DE or carbon, is required but there is no disassembly of plate bundle for cake removal.
The wash-off type filter in many cases refers to the cartridge used in the filter tank. These cartridges can be supplied to fit most existing Sparkler® Filter Horizontal Plate Filter Vessels.
