Filter Press Cloths
An ongoing progress of fabric development has led to Crosible Filtration becoming a world leader in the supply and manufacture of filter press cloths. And hi-tech filtration products
Filter Press and Services
Crosible Filter plates come in a variety of sizes and are suitable for many different application needs
Liquid Filtration – Media selection
Process efficiency at the filtration stage lies with the correct fabric selection. Polymers, thread counts, yarn type, weave pattern and permeability all play a crucial part to achieve these efficiencies demanded by todays demanding filtration processes.
Over and above the filtration fabric, Crosible has invented unique ways of superior cloth assembly. Fusing rubber necks to achieve leak free & Abrasion resistant feed ports.
Crosible’s unique “ Montini “ inlay has revolutionized challenging plate sealing applications . All filter cloth are precision laser cut to ensure accuracy and constancy.

Frequently asked questions
Yes, blue latex edge seal, helps reduce & eliminate wicking of the effluent between the filaments, substantially reducing press dripping & Leaking.
Cake moisture increases when the cloths are blinding. Therefore, selecting a media to reduce blinding reduces cake moisture.
Monofilaments, or Mono/ multifilament cloths prevent blinding hence reducing cake moistures.
A: Polypropylene is the most economical and versatile polymer, tolerating a pH from 0 to 14, and temperatures up to 90 Degree C .
B: Polyester is used for increased tensile strength and higher temperatures & higher oxidation levels.
C: Nylon (Rilsan) is used to combat high temperatures and high abrasion and achieving improved cake discharge .
To reduce cloth edge leaking, but mostly to protect filter cloth from premature failure from the plates during high filtration velocities.
To create better drainage on the filter plates.
A: They are abrasion resistant, rendering longer lifespan to filter cloths if cloth necks fail prematurely due to abrasion.
B: Rubber necks render a leak free design, especially when fused and not sewn to the filter cloths, eliminating stitching holes.
C: The core plug of the cake is easily removed during the cleaning cycle, due to the non-drainage aspect.
A: When clarities are compromised due to cloth wear.
B: When cloths are blinded, causing slow filtration rates and moist sloppy cakes.
C: On average between 2-3 months, but if abrasion is severe or plates are compromised this could be reduced to 1-2 months. It is not uncommon to exceed a cloth life of 12 months or more, depending on the use and cycle times of the process.
