“Bomb Bay” Drip Trays

Drip Trays“Bomb bay door” style drip trays are a useful option to:

  • Collect any dripping filtrate during the feed cycle to prevent drips from reaching conveyors or cake dumpsters.
  • Capture filtrate residue when the filter closing pressure is initially released prior to cake discharge.
  • Allow high pressure wand cleaning of the cloth and/or plate, discharging the cleaning liquor to a launder via the doors.
  • Retain wash water from automatic cloth washing equipment.

The “bomb bay” doors can be designed to open automatically with the filter press while having a manual override for cleaning. Though stainless steel is the standard, the doors are also available in polypropylene or FRP. The doors are mounted horizontally and direct the filtrate flow to a launder (trough) at one side of the filter press. The inclined plastic launder (trough) runs the length of the filter press, collecting and directing the filtrate to a discharge location/connection specified by the customer.
