To select the correct type of filter cloth to match your needs, the first step we must take is to determine the type of process or application performed by the filter press, the operating environment, and the performance required of the filter cloths.
Your process could also determine the lengh of life of your filter cloths. They could last as little as six months or as long as five years. It depends on many things such as, how often you run your filter press, what you run through your filter press and how well you maintain your filter cloths.
It’s probably time to change your cloths when you see abrasion, stretchiness, folding, holes, poor cake, dirty filtrate or when conventional cleaning techniques don’t restore the performance of your filter press.
These filter cloths come in many different materials including polypropylene, polyester, cotton, and other synthetic materials. Mesh opening or pore size is also an important consideration when selecting the proper filter cloths for a particular application.
