IHI Leaf Filter Standard type capable of drying filtrated cake by steam, air and N2 gas, and discharging it automatically. The bottom of the vessel has an inverted cone shape for smooth cake discharging.
IHI LEAF FILTER can deal with the slurry under high pressure, high temperature and high viscosity. IHI can install a mechanical seal for virulent or volatile slurry. IHI can also make the filter sealed by installing a ball discharge valve. IHI LEAF FILTER can wash the interior of vessels after cake discharging.
The vessel has a good capacity to resist pressure and if necessary you can install a jacket. The CFR type has a vertical cylindrical body and the drive unit is arranged on the top. The bottom of the vessel has an inverted cone shape and there is an outlet valve for smooth cake discharging. For the outlet valve we used the IHI's original rubber seal valve, ball valve or butterfly valve.
When the operation finishes, the CFR type removes the slurry from the tank by removing or filtrating the residual liquid, and then dries the cake. After the drying, the motor begins to rotate. The rotation is conducted through the V-belt to the shaft and rotates the leaves. Finally cake is discharged from the bottom of the vessel.
