This Baron Blakeslee Fabric Gravity Filtration is totally automatic and responds to wide variations in flow rate and solids concentration. A pump transfers the contaminated solution to the diffuser tray which distributes flow across the full width of the filter bed. Particle separation begins immediately via gravity flow through the media to the clean reservoir below the conveyor frame. Filtered solution can then gravity drain to waste or be returned to the process via a pump. Gravity flow allows gentle accumulation and settling of solids on the filter fabric. The concave configuration of the media bed accommodates the flow rate and maximizes solids loading on the fabric. As the media gradually becomes laden with solids, the solution level will slowly rise until the float switch activates the convey or drive motor. Consumed fabric is advanced to the sludge box as fresh media is simultaneously indexed to the solution flow. Included are the solution reservoir and sludge box, float switch level control for belt motor, SS 316 conveyor belt, magnetic motor starter including HAND-OFF-AUTO selector switch.
