Our CECO Mefiag brand steel rubber-lined High Capacity Electroplating Filter Systems feature horizontal disc technology and capacities of 4,500 to 15,000 gph for Single Chamber and capacities from 18,000 to 30,000 gph for Dual Chamber.

Designed for the filtration of nickel, copper and zinc electrolytes.
  • Operating temperature to 180F.
  • Depending on the type of process, single chamber systems are designed for plating tanks ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 gallons;dual chamber systems are designed for plating tanks from 4,000 to 6,000 gallons.
  • Can be supplied with high profile (for zinc) or low profile (for nickel and copper) horizontal discs.
  • Special X-versions of these units are available for filtration of aggressive liquids such as acid copper, acid zinc or acid tin. The slurry tank and filter housing on X-versions are lined inside and out with ebonite, and the pump shaft is titanium.Exclusive MEFIAG® stainless steel lifting device provides for simple mechanical movement of the cover for maintenance purposes. Just turn crank to raise lid. Then swing lid away to access filter media.

    Filter

    Filter

    N/A Filter chambers are constructed of mild steel with hard rubber lining (3 mm) on the interior and corrosion resistant paint (2 coats) on the exterior.
    A flanged tangential inlet is standard, along with a bottom outlet and drain.
    Stainless steel eyebolts with handwheels hold the powder coated steel cover in place. The lifting device provides for mechanical movement of the cover for maintenance purposes. An air release valve positioned on the cover, is also used as the return line during pre-coating.
    A pressure gauge (0-60 PSI) is supplied with a corrosion resistant guard.
    Filter media suited for the application is placed between the rigid polypropylene filter discs. Filter media of various materials and micron ratings are available. Ten (10) micron cellulose is standard.
    All systems are mounted on a powder coated structural steel frame with casters for easy handling.

    Pump

    Pump

    N/A Fybroc fiberglass centrifugal pumps are standard. Mechanical seal options are single CRS- 35/B with silicon carbide faces or double water flush.

    Slurry Tank Specifications

    Slurry Tank Specifications

    N/A Slurry tanks are mild steel construction with an interior of hard rubber (3 mm) and an exterior of corrosion resistant paint (2 coats). They are used to facilitate pre-coating and addition of activated carbon (if required), as well as solution make-up and priming of the pump. The slurry tank can also be used to store solution from the filter chamber during changing of media or maintenance. Pre-coating provides superior filtration and extends the life of the filter media.

    Piping, Valves and Connections

    Piping, Valves and Connections

    N/A Piping, valves, and connections are all CPVC construction.
    Suction of the pump is piped to permit flow from the solution tank, slurry tank, and the filter chamber.

    X-Construction

    X-Construction

    N/A X-construction is used for more aggressive solutions such as acid copper, acid zinc, and acid tin. The filter chamber and slurry tank are outside rubber lined, the base and cover are powder coated and the pump shaft is titanium.

    VD Lid Assembly

    VD Lid Assembly

    N/A VD Lid assembly is used to tighten down the disc stack verses the cover. (Optional)
    • 1 Motor availability (Specify completely with order):
      3 HP, 5 HP or 10 HP - 208, 230, 460, and 575 VAC (all 60 HZ, three-phase only)
      Fully-wired, liquid-tight motor starter is included for proper thermal and overcurrent protection
