Products: VPC Pressure Filter

Automatic Pressure Filter | Pressure Filter Design | Filtra-Systems

The Verti-Press Filter (VPC) is the next generation of automatic pressure filtering technology.

The VPC does not clam shell open and close, instead it uses patented pneumatic seals to seal the chamber off during filtration. Once filtration is complete, compressed air forces the remaining liquid through the filter media, which removes contaminants from the cutting oil.

Next, the filter media is automatically discharged from the automatic pressure filter after each filtration cycle.

The horizontal chamber in this pressure filter design ensures an even filter cake formation and allows for the VPC units to be stacked, one on top of the other to minimize the footprint.

Another benefit of these automatic pressure filters is, in multiple chamber installations, chambers operate independently and can be isolated to maximize run times.

The VPC is typically constructed out of carbon steel to minimize cost and still allows for the robust pressure filter design. 

The units are used in the metalworking and steel industries for filtering contaminants from coolants, oils, and wash water applications.

The VPC has the flexibility to be incorporated into an existing facility or packaged with a clean/dirty tank and pumps for a complete turnkey system.
