Dry Cake Discharge
The Sparkler® MCRO (DCD) Filter is cleaned with speed and efficiency by means of a pneumatic vibrator, but can also be cleaned manually. After the filtration cycle is finished, the filter cake is dried on the filter plates using air or gas and the tank is opened. The pneumatic vibrator is actuated and the vibrations are transmitted through the vibrator bar which is mounted alongside of the filter plate bundle. The filter plates are vibrated and the cake falls off in pieces. Since the plates have a vibrator connection on the side, the top side shakes and the bottom side shakes. The vibrator should be operated for a minute at a time. Vibrator operation continues until cake is discharged.
