  • Zero Hold Up Filter Press Machine


Zero Hold Up Filter Press uses for filtration of liquid by separating solid from the liquid. Adhering cGMP and FDA compliance, out filter press machine equipped with gear pump, centrifugal pump or lobe pump as specific process requirements. Filtration assembly has modern design to achieve optimum process output. Perforated screens, filter plates, spacers and filter pad organized in such a way to obtain hassle free productivity.

The Zero Hold Up Filter Press mostly uses for syrup and suspension filtration in pharmaceutical industry. Syrup Filter Press also find usage in other wide range of industries such as distillery, food ingredients, organic chemicals, resin, ink, oil and many more. Filter pad and disc organized in a manner which separates solid cake from the flow of liquid. Dome structure at top enables easily removing of cartridge assembly for cleaning of pad and cake removal. Variety of pad can be use depending upon different product types requirements. Features of continuous process and zero holding material within chamber named it Zero Hold Up Filter Press.

Syrup Filter Press uses to achieve absolute filtration results of high value products. Notably equipments meets cGMP and FDA requirements laid down in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and allied industries. Apart from Syrup, Suspension & Oral Liquid these Filter Press Machine having wide usage in beverage industry for filtration of aerated beverages. Equipment proved its importance in food industry for filtration of pulp based drinks with utmost accuracy. Toxic, dangerous, and explosive liquids can readily be filtered thanks to the press’s included cake filter aid and solids. Due to reverse flow of liquid there is zero hold up in chamber which ensure complete filtration of load. It offers one pass clarity, homogeneous cake distribution across all plates. Design is so simple that drying of the cake can be performed with simple air and nitrogen purging.

Working Principle of Zero Hold Up Filter Press

The liquid is fed into the filter of the machine and it is done under positive pressure. Now, the liquid travels downwards and passes through the opening on the sides of filter plates. The filter media holds back foreign particles and enables only clear filtrate to go past the central channel. This central channel is made by interlocking pressure cups to the outlet. The filtration process continues until the cake holding capacity gets saturated or the filtrate rate gets way slower than it must be. This happens due to decreasing cake resistance.
