Metal rolling mills around the world use plate and frame pressure filtration systems to clean and reuse mill coolants. Womack's unique composite plate design, however, ensures longer life for new applications and dramatically extends the life of retrofit equipment. As a result, a Womack filtration system with composite filter plates provides lower total cost ownership over the life of your filtration system.
Our composite filter plates offer the following benefits:
Resistance To Corrosion
Old metal filter plates tend to leak, because seal surfaces and welds become pitted and fail over time. With our composite plates you won't have to worry about replacing or reworking metal filter plates. The smooth sealing surfaces of our plates resist the common corrosion problems encountered on metal filter plates.
Easy Clean-out Capabilities
Our composite filter plates are equipped with removable clean-out plugs and removal internal troughs for ease of maintenance without needing to remove the plate from the filter stack.
Better Filter Sealing Capacities
Our plates ensure a good seal on the filter press over the lifetime of the filter and virtually eliminate leaks and wicking of coolants to the outside of the filter. This reduces maintenance and minimizes hazards around the filter.
Non-stick Filter Media On Extraction
Much of the filter media in use today tends to stick to the sharp edges and pitted seal surfaces of metal filter plates. The smooth, clean surface of Womack composite plates minimizes the amount of filter media sticking to the filter plates. This reduces maintenance and required intervention of operators. It also minimizes turn-around time when clean-cycling the filter.
Dramatically Longer Equipment Life
The composite materials in our plates last several lifetimes longer than that of metal filter plates.
Lower Cost Of Ownership Over The Lifetime Of The System
The benefits of our composite plates contribute to lower cost of ownership for the life of your filter system.
