Section 2 – Tenova DELKOR FP Overhead General Description

Filter Frame
DELKOR FP frame consist of the following components:
A. Fixed Head (feed end)
B. Fixed Head (drive end)
C. Moving Head
D. Overhead Beam
E. Low side bars for tension stress

A. Fixed head (feed end)

Made of epoxy painted carbon steel, it houses the slurry feed and filtrate discharge piping. It is connected
to the fixed head (drive end) by means of the overhead beam. In case of aggressive or corrosive slurries,
wetted parts are protected with ad-hoc cladding.
The fixed head is bolted to the overhead beam and is secured to its mounting position with holding down
bolts. The feed and corner port filtrate holes are machined into the fixed head (feed end) and the
polypropylene or stainless steel port liners are inserted into these holes.

B. Fixed head (drive end)

Made of epoxy painted carbon steel, the fixed head (drive end) houses the plate pack opening/closing
system drive. The fixed head (drive end) is connected to the fixed head (feed end) by the overhead beam
and it is fastened to the floor with slots that allow the necessary displacement.

C. Moving head
Made with epoxy painted carbon steel, the moving head is suspended from and connected to the fixed head
(feed end) by means of a hydraulic cylinder.

D. Overhead beam
Made of epoxy painted carbon steel, the overhead beam is bolted to the two fixed heads and houses the
carrousel mechanism opening and closing the plate pack and sustains the plates’ weight. The overhead
beam rests on brackets machined in the fixed head and in the cylinder carrier head.

Page | 12
Plate Pack Open-Close-Compression System
DELKOR FPs uses the traditional hydraulic cylinder moved by the hydraulic power pack as opening/closing
and plate pack compression.
The opening can be simultaneous, batch or one by one.
The hydraulic power unit moves and controls the hydraulic cylinder. The hydraulic power unit consists of the
following components:
• tank with oil sight glass;
• distributor with solenoid valve for control of the hydraulic cylinder;
• safety valve;
• pressure gauge;
• double pressure switch (maximum pressure and automatic reset);
• electric motor;
• level switch;
• heat switch.

The hydraulic cylinder is double acting with locking ring, regulation screw and overturning joint.

Page | 13
Plate-shifting Mechanism
One by one opening is the only possible shifting mechanism and it is composed by a carousel mechanism
installed inside the overhead beam in a “safe” position (against corrosive slurries of acids) easily reachable
for maintenance purposes. It is composed by:
• Driving gear motor and VFD with pinions connected to a special chain sliding on rails, closed as a
• Carrier linked to the chain provided with special hooks;
• Hooks, moved by the chain, clamp the plates from the pack, transport and release one by one;
• Inversion of movement of the chain to clamp and release the plates happens by means of torque

High-pressure Cloth Washer

The washing system consists of a washing arm (with nozzles assembled in it) that washes one plate at a time
up to 100 bar pressure. The number of washing passages and the frequency of the washing are parameters
that can be set in the PLC.
The cloth washer is composed by:
• Automatic trolley on the filter press upper beam, to automatically place the washing ramps on the
plates to be washed. The movement is obtained by a gear motor with pinion linked to a rack fitted on
the upper beam. Installed power 0.75 kW;
• Lifting device installed on the trolley to lift up and down the washing ramps to cover the whole plate
surface. The movement is obtained by a gear motor connected to a chain (installed on the trolley)
that moves the ramps. Installed power 0.75 kW;
• Stainless steel ramps connected to lifting chain with interchangeable stainless steel sprayers;
• Flexible high pressure hose to connect the sprayers to the high pressure water inlet.

Drip Trays
Tenova DELKOR offers an automatic spillage collection and re-routing device that collects cloth washing water
and dripping water. The structural part of the bomb door is made of painted carbon steel, while the parts directly
in contact with filtered water are made of materials specifically chosen for the slurry being treated.

Filter Plates
Page | 14
The filter process requirement will determine the number and type of filter plates required. Tenova
DELKOR offers the full range of filter plates available on the market. We offer recessed chamber, plate and
frame, replaceable elastomer membrane; replaceable moulded polypropylene overhung membrane and
moulded polypropylene m o n o - b l o c membrane type plates. The operating pressure, temperature and
dissolved species in solution determine the plate thickness as well as the grade and type of polypropylene
used in any given application. For higher temperatures PVDF or steel plates can be utilized.

Membrane plates can be used in certain specific applications and the type of membrane plate selected is
based on the process operating conditions. Membrane plates can be inflated using air or water. A water
inflation system comprises a receiving tank, a water pump local piping, a water manifold and flexible hose
connections to the plates/connections internal to the plates.

Filter Cloths
The filter cloth encloses the filter plate and is used to retain the solid and allow the filtrate to flow. The filter
cloths are mainly made of the following materials: Polypropylene, polyamide, polyester. There are two types
of filter cloths fixing systems available.
 Barrel Neck for filter presses from 630x630mm to 2000x2000mm plates: the filter cloth is manufactured
as two separate sheets connected via a barrel neck. The first cloth sheet side is fitted onto the plate and
the second cloth sheet fed through the plate feed port. The second cloth sheet is then fitted onto the
opposite plate side. Cloths are secured on the filter plate with polypropylene cloth dogs on the top and
bottom of the plate;
 Single cloths with feed shoes for 2000x2000mm plate filter presses with external ports and bigger. This
cloths are hanging from the plate and are equipped with a feed shoe that comes in contact with the plate
when the filter press is closed, thus guaranteeing an effective sealing.

Automation and Electrification

Tenova DELKOR filter presses are supplied with a control panel serving as the interface between the press
and the operator. It is used to control:
 all filter press functions
 all functions of the options, ancillaries and accessories included in the quotation
 all process functions

Control panels are available in two configurations:

Safety Protections
A. Interlocked gates
The filter press is enclosed in interlocked gates on both sides of the filter press and it is standard for
1500x1500 filter presses and bigger.

B. Movable splash panels

The filter press is enclosed in customized splash guards that protect the operator from the hazardous material
is being treated. The panels slide open to allow easy access to the plate pack. The operator works in complete
safety, since reed sensors halt the filter press when the panel is opened (standard for 1000 and below).

Page | 17
Upon request, the following devices can be used:
• Light curtains: each side of the filter press is equipped with an infrared light beam photoelectric barrier
(safety light curtain), which stops the machine whenever the infrared light beam barrier is interrupted
by an opaque object (be it a body part of the operator or a tool).
• Side guards: the side guards or grills are installed on the side opposite the one used by the machine
operator manning the filter press during the cake discharge phase. When the guard is opened, the
limit switches are disengaged and all moving parts of the filter press are stopped.
• Pull-wire switch: pull-wire emergency stop switches are installed when guards cannot be used. The
stop command can be initiated from any point on the wire.
