The estimated lifetime of a plate pack is ten years, depending on the degree of maintenance. After this point, it is highly recommended to carry out an upgrade in order to avoid problems from bending, cracks, or other mechanical issues. Changing the whole plate pack at once is often more cost-effective than replacing plates individually.
- Improves equipment efficiency
- Offers more reliable operation and lower spare parts consumption
- Increases safety as damaged or worn suspension pins are high risk in filter operation
- Lowers operating costs when compared to replacing individual plates
