Leaf Filter is available in two types of vessel configuration : vertical and horizontal vessels.
In most of the fine chemicals processes the leaves are fitted into vertical vessels whilst horizontal vessels are used in the heavier process industries.
The leaves inside horizontal tanks may be positioned either along the tank axis or perpendicular to the axis. Vertical Pressure Leaf Filters are often applied for the polishing of slurries with very low solids content.
Leaf Filters are also very well suited for handling flammable, toxic and corrosive materials since they are autoclaved and designed for hazardous environments when high pressure and safe operation are required.
Leaf Filters may be jacketed for applications whenever hot or cold temperatures are to be preserved.
