How do I change the filter cloth on the tail plate of my gasketed filter press?
Unlike intermediate filter cloths, the end-plate (both head plate and tail plate) cloths do not have a sewn-in centerfeed eye.
- Remove the old head cloth by first removing the centerfeed assembly's clip nut located in the center, holding the cloth in place. Utilize a spanner wrench for this task.
- Then, tap the corners of the new end-cloth into the head-plate making sure it is positioned correctly.
- Cut out the cloth around the centerfeed pipe using the equivalent of a hot knife, soldering gun or the like. This will seal the edges of the cut to prevent possible fraying of threads in the cloth.
- After the hole has been cut, finish installing the head cloth, then re-attach the clip nut.
