The Clear One
The Hoffmann Precoat Filter is designed for extremely fine filtration. The systems work with great success on applications that require an extremely high surface finish, yet create small amounts of stock removal (i.e. honing and super finishing) as well as EDM applications.
Systems are available with flow rates ranging from 5 GPM to 1,200 GPM and are available in manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic versions. All automatic systems come with drying stations.
Using the principle of depth filtration, the filter plates inside the vessel are “precoated” with a filter aid such as cellulose or diatomaceous earth. The filter cake grows and compresses steadily during the filtering cycle, dropping throughput capacity and increasing the pressure in the vessel. When a maximum differential pressure is reached or a preset filtration time ends, the filter plates are cleaned and filter cake is dried.
By utilizing horizontal filter plates, the process can be interrupted at any time without disturbing the filter cake. Manual systems are available with 27 or 43 square feet filter areas, and can be customized with magnetic separators and coolers to meet your exact needs. Look below for our precoat filters gallery.
