Description and Principle of Squeeze Indicator
  • The squeeze indicator comprises a polypropylene body including a specially
    engineered inspection glass
  • The indicator acts according to suspended flow meter principle.
  • Squeeze indicator is mounted in the press medium line of each
    membrane plate or can be integrated in the membrane plate directly.
  • The Indicator moves back to equilibrium position in case there is no
    press medium flow and visually indicates termination of squeezing.
  • As long as filtercake is compressible the press medium flow does not
    stop and indicator remains in a non-equilibrium position indicating
    that squeezing is still ongoing.
  • In case of a defect membrane the indicator remains in non-equilibrium
    position for this plate.

Advantages using the JVK membrane squeeze indicator
  • Suitable for squeeze pressures up to 20 bar (media: air, water)
  • Minimizing cycle time by direct indication of squeeze process end
    with optimization of daily output
  • Savings in energy consumption (compressed air etc.)
  • Fast and reliable detection of membrane failure and thus:
    less downtime
    optimization of overall operating costs
  • Safety feature avoiding potential differential pressures due to
    membrane failure
  • Can be retrofitted to existing membrane filter plates
  • Direct electronic read-out possible
