Amafilter® vertical and horizontal pressure leaf filter systems
The Amafilter® pressure leaf filter systems are designed to maximise the filtration surface area of the filter leaves and offer optimal bulk filration in the smallest footprint.
The pressure leaf filter systems produce high filtrate clarity. Different types of filter aids can be used in our pressure leaf filters to improve filtrate quality.

  • Proven technology. Fully automated, ensures safety.
  • Small footprint required, maximized space.
  • Easy access to clean the filter leaves and for removal of the cake.
  • Full automation; limited maintenance and lower operational costs.
  • Short regeneration time between filtration cycles, reducing operating costs as the filter can filtrate for longer periods without disruptions.
  • No rotating parts, keeping maintenance to minimum.
  • Reinforced pressure filter leaves provide extended lifetime.
  • Specifically designed self sealing cover gaskets for a perfect sealing solution and maximum safety.

  • Proven technology
  • The pressure leaf filter is a closed filtration system which ensures safety of use.
  • Easy access to the filter leaves for removal of the cake
  • It is fully automated, making it safer and requiring limited maintenance, hence lowering operational costs.
  • The regeneration time between the filtration cycles is short, lowering operating costs as the filter can filtrate for longer periods without disruptions. This also delivers greater production capacity.
  • Filter leaves are easy to clean.
  • The pressure leaf filter system has no rotating parts, keeping maintenance to a minimum.
  • Reinforced filter leaves, longer lifetime
  • Special self-sealing cover gasket. The gasket can be re-used and does not need to be replaced after every opening of the filter system cover. The gasket comes with special self-sealing properties to ensure a perfect sealing solution and promoting maximum safety.
  • All pressure leaf filter systems can be made with a heating jacket in order to maintain elevated process temperatures. This is specifically required to avoid cooling down of the suspension in instances where this is not permitted during the filtration process.
