The filters consist of multiple discs mounted on a horizontal shaft. Each disc is made up of 10 plastic sectors covered with filter cloth bags that are clamped together. The bottom of each sector is connected to a filtrate tube that runs along the shaft to a rotary valve at the end of the filter. This tube connects the rotating discs to a vacuum source. The discs sit partially submerged in an agitated slurry bath, and the vacuum applied to the sectors forms a cake in the slurry as filtrate passes through the cloth and solids are captured on the surface. As the disc rotates out of the slurry, the cake is dried before a snap blow discharges it through chutes in the vat.Simple maintenance, minimized downtime, and maximum reliability
All SABARI filter models feature simple components and low-cost wear parts to simplify maintenance and minimize downtime. For example, the filtrate tubes are mounted externally so they can be quickly and easily replaced. Trunnion-bearing liners are also easy to replace. To extend the life of wear parts, the vacuum head includes multiple lubrication ports and the valve and wear plates come with allowance for re-machining. Rigid cast-iron wear plates reduce leakage, while a heavy-duty enclosed chain drive boosts durability and reliability.
