The length of the platform on your Smoky Lake Filter Press will determine the ultimate maximum capacity of your press. A Short Platform can hold up to 10 filters (5 window plates + 5 waffle plates). A Long Platform can hold up to 20 filters (10 window plates + 10 waffle plates). Every Smoky Lake Filter Press is initially sold with a minimum of at least 6 filters (3 window plates + 3 waffle plates).
The Expansion Kits include the 7″ stainless steel plates and longer hanging rods. These rods are now made out of 17-4PH stainless steel, an extremely strong metal. One important benefit of using this material is that the threads will not strip. Second, the filter press’s plates can now glide across the rods which has enhanced the ease of use and overall feel.
Disposable Filter Paper is sold separately. You will use two Disposable Filter Papers for each window plate in your system.
We recommend that you send us ONE of your existing Waffle Plates and ONE of your existing Window Plates for us to measure and model your new plates after. Note, this precaution – fitment analysis of old plates to new plates here at the factory – is not always necessary, but there have been cases in which factory adjustments were deemed extremely helpful. We are happy to perform this service for you.
