Our innovative solutions are based on our wide range of products which one can customize according to the needs of our consumers. Thus every product of NMP becomes one of its kind. Customization of products gives a unique touch to all products.

The most basic thing to consider while using and operating a filter press is determining the right filter component for the Membrane filter plate. One of the most popular types of filter plates is the CGR Filter plate. The mix of filter plate components in any filter press will help you determine good materials and their development. The cost factor also becomes a thing to consider here. The primary application of filter press plates is eliminating fine matter and small stones from the liquid.

Filter press plates for chamber filters are its most essential parts. The plastic filter plates are resistant to chemicals and pressure. Polypropylene is the material used to manufacture these plates. Filter plates, mainly responsible for the solid and liquid separation, are installed with different types of filter cloth. The filter plates can withstand temperatures as high as 130 degrees and as low as 10 degrees. They can also operate continuously without any difficulty and technical problems. The plate and cake thickness is customized according to the application and the filtration condition. The size of the plates can be 305mm*305mm to 1500mm*2000mm. The range of the thickness of the cake can vary between 15mm*50mm. The size of the plates and the thickness of the cake allow for optimal adaption to filtration tasks.

Why Should You Choose Cgr Filter Plates?
  • CGR Filter Plates allow excellent sealing. When the sealing is good, it leads to technically leak-free operation.
  • CGR Filter Plates are made of polypropylene. The material Polypropylene provides excellent resistance to chemicals and corrosion. The material also offers good tolerance to high temperatures and can withstand high flow and pressure.
  • A special piped surface is also present in CGR Filter Plates that protect the filter cloth. The piped surface also ensures excellent filtration.
  • CGR Filter Plates also have a long life. Thus it provides you with a higher return on investment.
Operation Of Cgr Filter Plates

CGR Filter Plates are an advanced version of Recessed Chamber Closed Configuration Plates. Filter Cloth is clogged in the clogging groove around the recess plate of CGR Filter Plates. ‘O’ Ring seats around the sealing edge and filtrate hole of CGR Filter Plates provide a tight seal when the plate pack is closed. Cloth clogging groove helps in easy installation of filter cloth and requires the least maintenance. CGR Plates are highly proposed and essential for zero leak conditions of toxic substances. Toxic materials like Acidic solutions should not be leaked and should be tightly secured as it is very harmful. Different elastomers like EPDM, Neoprene, Viton, etc. are available for ‘O’ Ring. Filter Cloth Selection are obtainable with the centre, top, bottom, and corner feeding with flexible diameters. CGR Plates are made at eight and sixteen bar operating pressure.

CGR Plates are made of polypropylene primarily applied in metal hydroxide. Since CGR Plates provides leak-free operation, it provides drier cakes. A filter cloth of CGR is shaped like an octagon and caulked into a groove. The groove is present around the outer edge of the plate recess. Industries commonly using CGR are chemical manufacturing, industrial, mining, food and beverage, and municipal waste. Although Non-gasketed cloth is simpler to install and is faster, CGR Plates contributes to zero leak operation. The plate seals against the next plate in a CGR Plate, thus creating an obstruction that prevents any wicking. CGR Filter Cloth is present in grooves inside the filter plate. The grooves presented inside the plates are between the width of ¼'' and 3/8''.When the plate pack is closed, grooves present with an "O-Ring" around the sealing edge and filtrate holes form a tight seal.

What Is Semi Auto Filter Press? How Does It Work?

A central control panel is present in a semi auto filter press where the operator initiates every string step. All the valves of a semi auto filter press are opened and closed with the help of physical labor. A semi auto filter press is used in industries such as granites and sludge produced from galvanizing plants consisting of zinc, chromium, copper, nickel, etc.

How Do Filter Presses Work In Chemical Manufacturing?

NMP Filter Press is the special equipment for chemical manufacturers. It can be used in the production of NMP. It can filter solid matter from liquids or gases.

Why Do We Choose Membrane Filter Presses?

A filter press is used to separate liquids and solids by using the pressure filtration method when put in simple words. A slurry is forced inside the filter press equipment, and water comes rushing out from it due to pressure. The method of filter press has been used since the mid-1800s in many industries such as wastewater, chemicals, cosmetics, industrial, pharmaceutical, metals, and mining.
