Static Filter

A static filter is a simple machine for batch filtration, using only pressure or vacuum as its driving force.

There are no moving parts and it is a totally manual vessel, normally used for small pilot batches or for small product campaigns where it is possible to have the assistance of an operator. The static filter has a cylindrical body, equipped with a convex top head and a flat bottom, and a filtering sheet, installed on the flat bottom head, where a supporting frame is mounted.

Typical Applications

  • API production
  • Fine chemicals
  • Dietary supplements/fragrances


  • Filtration through pressure or vacuum
  • Vertical design to save space
  • Suitable for multi-product or mono-product applications accomplished in a batch process
  • Hydraulic system, which helps operators service and operate the machine, allows:
    • Top head opening/closure without the help of an external lifting device
    • Body lifting and filtering sheet exchange
