8D Plate & Frame Filter

The 8D plate & frame filter press combines the latest weld-free construction technology with the most revolutionary plate and frame design concept in recent history. The Diamond Series provides complete drainage and venting while maintaining a superior internally ported design.

These 8-inch square plate and frame filters are one of the most economical models ErtelAlsop manufactures. Sized for bench stand use and able to accept up to twenty (20) filter pads, they are designed to work in a wide range of high efficiency, ultra-fine filtration applications. As with all ErtelAlsop plate and frame filter presses, the Model 8D has the same component flexibility as other models, accepts various thickness filter media, and is internally ported eliminating the need for gaskets as well as concerns about compatibility and cross-contamination.

The Diamond Series line is designed for use in critical applications where holdup volumes can be costly. Historically, plate and frame technology has required that upon completion of the production cycle, up to 90% of the liquid remaining in the filter needs to be reprocessed or discarded. The Diamond Series eliminates this obstacle entirely. Maximum yield of viable liquid is now possible.
