Pre-coat Filtration

Support Sheet for Sterilization with Hot Water or Saturated

BECO ENDURA from Eatons Begerow Product
Line is a new type of washable, reusable support
sheet for pre-coat filtration in diatomaceous earth
frame filters that you can use to achieve
particularly high performance. Due to its improved
wet strength and optimized surface, a service life
of up to 30 pre-coating cycles is possible
irrespective of the liquid to be filtered and the filter
aids used.

Insertion of the Support Sheet

The outlet side of the BECO support sheet is smooth
and is marked by the pattern impression of the
production screen with the BECO filter sheet type and
batch number. The outlet side of the support sheet
should show against the filter plate outlet side for the
filtered liquid. The rough surface of the inlet side is
pointing into the direction of the diatomaceous earth
BECO support sheets must be well moistened after
insertion and before closing the diatomaceous earth-
