A disc filter is made up of individual segments that are fixed to a rotating horizontal shaft. Each segment is covered by a filter cloth made from woven material – often shrinkable for tight fit. It is a continuous filtration process where by rotating the disc each segment is submerged into a slurry filled tank. A vacuum is applied resulting in the liquid being sucked through the filter cloth and into the segment. The solids in the liquid remain on the filter cloth and build up a filter cake which dries and is removed from the cloth as the disc rotates. Over time this process wears out the filter cloth which then needs replacing.
