How to Remove Old Cloths

Caulked Gasketed Recessed Chamber (CGR)

Caulked Gasketed Recessed Chamber Removal
With this type plate, the filter cloth is pounded into a groove located around the outer edge of the plate recess.

To Remove Filter Cloth:

  • Insert a thin bladed screw driver into the groove at the outer edge of the caulking and carefully pry a small section of the cloth out.
  • Grab the exposed caulking with vise grip pliers and pull the remaining cloth out of the caulking groove.
  • Repeat for the other side.
  • Use a utility knife and cut the connecting sleeve or Barrel Neck.

After the cloth is removed, inspect and remove any accumulated solids from the plate groove before inserting the new cloth.

Non-Gasketed Recessed Chamber

Non-Gasketed-Recessed-Chamber-Plates-LG
With this type plate, the filter cloth provides the seal between the plates. Leakage will occur during operation even though most of the non-gasketed plate cloths are supplied with latex edging. The latex will cut down the winking action somewhat but will not eliminate it.

To Remove Filter Cloth

  • Use wire cutters or snips to cut ties (if supplied) on vertical sides and lift one cloth side off cloth pins on top of plate.
  • Use a utility knife and cut the connecting sleeve or Barrel Neck.
