“Bomb Bay” Drip Trays

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.

And read here about a Micronics “Customer Success Story” a recent Drip Tray Retrofit, enabling a dramatic reduction in filter cake moisture in the catch bin and providing cost savings associated with reduced hauling costs.

“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 the automatic cloth washing equipment.
