The following features are characteristic for the Q-Filter® systems. As a result of these features it is possible to filter down to very low particle sizes without high filter cloth usage and filtration cost. This makes Q-Filter® the perfect solution for applications like high pressure deburring, high pressure cleaning, aqueous cleaning baths, machine coolants and emulsions and many more.
The most important features are discussed in more detail here.
In filtration, efficiency indicates what minimal particle size a filter can remove. This primarily depends on the sealing; what ever means are used to make sure the medium can only pass through the filter cloth and not bypass it through a seam or poor sealing. The better the sealing, the finer the filter cloth you can use and the smaller the particles that can be used.
In a belt filter, sealing is quite a challenge since all you have is a flat piece of filter cloth and whatever sealing you use, it may never obstruct the transport of the filter cloth through the unit. In a Q-Filter®, the sealing mechanism is an integral part of the transport mechanism, allowing very tight sealing.
With Q-Filter® it is possible to use filter cloth with an efficiency down to a particle size of 5µ! The picture shows the excellent sealing, noticable from the white tracks where the sealing prevented dirt from passing to the sides of the filter cloth.
