We manufacture various kinds of leaf filter, also named pressure leaf filter to be mainly used in edible oil industries. All the filters are commonly made of 5 layers stainless steel mesh or carbon steel wire mesh including 2 layers fine filter mesh, 2 layers supporting mesh and 1 drain mesh. They are held together by a tubular frame and there is mounted one or more pipes to let the filtered liquid flow out.
There are two types of pressure filters: vertical pressure leaf filter and horizontal pressure leaf filter. Vertical leaf filter is mainly used for solid or liquid separation and well-suited for handling toxic, flammable and corrosive material. Horizontal leaf filter fits for batch processing applications which require high flow rates and safe operations with low solids removal.
A round leaf filter and divided into several parts by the aluminum frame.
LF-01: Leaf filter can be installed with aluminum frame.
Several leaf filters in oblong shape mounted with a tubular frame and from the middle through a pipe.
LF-02: Leaf filter with a tubular frame and a pipe more durable than the original filter.
A corner of leaf filter and a close look of each layer.
LF-03: Leaf filter can be made of multi layers different kinds of wire mesh.
An oval leaf filter with tubular frame show us its inner structure.
LF-04: Leaf filter can made in different shapes.

Easy to operate and low maintenance.
Widely used in edible oil industry.
Anti-corrosion, anti-acid, anti-alkali.
Less space and more filtration rate.
Leaf filters are suitable for many applications industries, as follows:
Beverage Industry: Glucose, fruit juices, cold drinks, sugar, vinegar.
Chemical Industry: Inorganic salts, dyes, chemicals, plastic.
Pharmaceutical Industry: Antibiotics, syrup, bulk drugs, intravenous solutions.
Petrochemical Industry: Crude oil, lubricating oil.
