Operating principles

The system consists of a frame on which a series of plates – made of plastic material, stainless steel 18-10 (AISI 304) or, on request, AISI 316 – are mounted. Between these plates, are inserted filtering elements (cardboards), which can be of different porosity, depending on the type of filtration desired.

Spadoni MAGNUM, by alternating the plates with empty frames, can be adapted to also allow processing with diatomaceous earth. To optimize this process, MAGNUM can be, on request, combined with a diatomaceous earth dosing unit, for precoat formation and for dosage management during filtration.
