Automatic Drip Trays – sometimes known as “Bomb Bay Door” Drip Trays – can be a very useful option for highly efficient, automated Filter Press dewatering operations.
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.
