Vertical Pressure Leaf Filter Unit

vertical pressure leaf filter

The vertical pressure leaf filter is an enclosed filtration system and can be fully automated. This unit is autonomous and equipped with all auxiliaries necessary for excellent filtration results. The filter leaves are individually mounted on the central manifold, which allows easy and quick removal of some or all of the filter leaves.

For cleaning it’s not necessary to remove the filter leaves, this can be done even without opening the filter vessel, with our semi-automatic cleaning. We also offer manual cleaning.

We also offer diatomaceous earth for effective filtration of completion fluids, waste water, produced water, work-over and gravel pack fluids.

The vertical pressure leaf filters are available in various sizes from 400 to 1600 sq. ft. and can also be combined with dual cartridges or a bag filter in the unit. The compact footprint has many advantages over the filter press. The pump and mixing tanks are completely built into the frame.
