If you are a filter cloth user, you already know that there are three distinct cloth types that you need to order and reorder. The bulk of the filter cloths you use are the “Intermediate” Cloths, which are the cloths for the filter plates between the Head Plate and the Tail Plate. The Head Cloth is often a single panel cloth with a hole in the center but there are other configurations for Head Cloths such as drape over (overhang) cloths, and barrel-neck cloths.
Remember that the majority of head plates are bolted back to the feed head so you will be installing and removing the Head Cloth with the plate attached to the filter press. You can review this video about how to install a “Head” cloth on a filter press.
The Tail Cloth is the last cloth – a single cloth, drapeover cloth, or barrel-neck cloth. The design depends on the press manufacturer and/or the operating requirements.
