Main purpose of filter plate seals is to tightly seal off the tower press filtration chambers. If the sealing is not perfect, slurry leaks out of the filter chamber and damages frames, cloths and other filter parts. Premature damage of spares results in higher costs, safety risks and increases filter downtime.
Typical problems of common filter plate seals
Leaking through joints of seal elements or entire seal area
Seal elements are dropping out of the frame
Unfilled holes in the back side of the seal – when compressed, those are the weakest spots where rubber breaks, slurry leaks and causes damage to other parts of the filter
Consistent, flat 3-4 mm wide rubber area in both ends of seal elements - firm joints ensure tight sealing
Even rubber strip in the back holds seal elements in place
No holes in the back side of the seal - prevent leaking and protects other filter parts
Perfect finishing - professional look of Flowrox filter seals tells about how much attention is given to every single filter spare part
