Title: FILTERING DEVICE, PARTICULARLY STACKING FILTER
Abstract:
The invention relates to a filtering device, particularly a stacking filter, comprising individual filter disks (10) stacked on top of each other and provided with filter materials. Said filter disks (10) are surrounded at least by parts of a housing (12), comprising at least one channel for transporting unfiltered matter (22) and at least one channel for transporting filtrate (24). A distribution device (46) for transporting the filtrate and unfiltered matter axially penetrates the filter disks (10) and supporting disks (34) and receives the channel transporting filtrate (24) and the channel transporting unfiltered matter (22) in an integrating manner. Said distribution device (46) is provided with alternating inlets and outlets (48, 50) distributing the unfiltered materials or evacuating the filtrate and a closed wall area (52) diametrically opposed to said inlets and outlets (48, 50), such that both the unfiltered matter is fed into, and the filtrate is evacuated from, the filtering device via adjacent central channels of the filter assembly, whereby the flow paths are shortened and the relation between the available assembly space and the absorbing effective filter surface is optimized.
