Menardi offers all styles and sizes of pan filter cloths. These can be either heat or cold cut and are almost always woven polypropylene. The horizontal Pan Filter is used for high capacity dewatering and counter current washing of a wide range of granular and fibrous material. It is a highly efficient filter, with simple operations and a low installation cost.

Rotary Drum Filters
The rotary vacuum drum filter (RVDF) is one of the oldest filters applied to industrial liquid filtration. Menardi provides the best quality filters in polyester, nylon, and polypropylene for a variety of applications. We also develop specialty fabrics for difficult applications based on process requirements. The filters may incorporate a drum cloth that is caulked onto the drum itself, or they may utilize an endless belt which tracks off and discharges away from the drum. Options include side envelopes for cords or springs, raw edge blankets, and clipper, Velcro© and Velcro fish-mouth closures.

We offer Polypropylene, Polyester, Nylon and Teflon filter media, as well as laminated membrane (expanded PTFE) on woven and nonwoven substrates.
