Gasketed CGR Filter Press Introduction:
The gasketed CGR( Caulked Gasketed Recessed ) filter press is a filter press with gasketed filter cloth. What distinguishes a gasketed filter press from a non-gasketed one is the presence of rubber gaskets. These gaskets are placed around the edge of the plates to ensure a tight seal and prevent any leakage of the slurry or filtrate.
When equipped with a gasketed filter cloth, the filter press caters to specific materials, delivering enhanced filtration results.
What is a gasketed cloth?
A gasketed cloth is a specialized type of filter cloth designed with an integrated gasket around its edges. This gasket ensures a tight and leak-proof seal when the cloth is placed within a filter press or similar filtration device. The primary purpose of the gasket is to prevent any potential leaks or bypass of the slurry being filtered, ensuring a more efficient and clean filtration process. CGR filter press cloths are particularly useful when dealing with fine particles or when a high degree of separation is required.
Gasketed CGR Filter Press Working Principle
Slurry Feed: The process begins by pumping a mixture of liquid and suspended solids (slurry) into the filter press.
Filtration: As the slurry is pumped into the press, the liquid passes through the filter cloths and exits through the plates’ drainage ports, leaving the solid particles behind.
Cake Formation: Over time, the solids accumulate and form a cake between the plates.
Cake Discharge: Once the filtration cycle is complete, the plates are separated, and the solid cake is removed.

Advantages of Gasketed Chamber Filter Press
Gasketed Plates: The primary feature of a gasketed CGR filter press is the gasket that surrounds the edge of the plate. This gasket ensures a leak-proof operation, which is especially crucial when dealing with hazardous or toxic substances.
High Filtration Efficiency: Due to the recessed design of the gasketed filter plates, gasketed filter presses can hold more filter cake, leading to higher filtration efficiency.
Versatility: Gasketed CGR filter presses can handle a wide range of slurry types, making them suitable for various industries, including wastewater treatment, mining, and chemical processing.
Installing a Gasketed Filter Cloth on Uniwin Filter Press
Safety: Ensure the device is powered off, and always wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
Preparation: Clean the filter press plates thoroughly and inspect the CGR cloths for any potential damage.
Positioning: Lay the cloth flat, aligning its center with the plate’s center feed hole.
Securing: Press the cloth’s gasketed edge into the plate’s groove and use any provided mechanisms to fasten it securely.
Trimming: If there’s excess cloth beyond the plate’s edge, trim it carefully without damaging the gasket.
Reassembly: After installing the cloth, reposition the plates back into the filter press.
Testing: Run a test cycle to ensure the cloth is sealed properly and there are no leaks.
Maintenance: Periodically inspect the gasketed cloths for wear and ensure it’s cleaned as per recommendations.
Gasketed filter presses are used in a variety of industries, including wastewater treatment, mining, chemical processing, and food and beverage production. They are especially useful when a tight seal is required to prevent any leakage or when the filtrate needs to be recovered without contamination.
