Stainless Steel Plate and Frame

The liquid to be filtered enters the Star Filter by way of an inlet manifold formed by the inlet ports when the press is closed.  The inlet manifold is ported into the frames.  All of the frames are filled simultaneously.  When the frames are filled with liquid, the pressure generated by the filter’s feed pump pushes the liquid through the filter sheets loaded onto each side of the frame and into the corresponding plates between each frame.  The solids are trapped inside the frames by this filtration action.
