Multiple Unit Filter Press Model RCLFM-6A
Multiple Unit Filter Press assemblies permit simultaneous running
of one to six filtration tests.Each one of the assemblies consists
of a frame with the indicated number of complete filter
cells.Manifolds are complete with air hoses, cut-offs and bleeder
valves. Accessories such as pressure regulators and hoses for
connection to pressurization source are sold separately.
Filter Press, 6 Cells and 4 Cells and 2 Cells
The Series RCLFM-6A APT Low Pressure Low Temperature (LPLT) Filter
Press consists of a mud
reservoir mounted in a frame, a pressure source, a filtering
medium, and a graduated cylinder for receiving and measuring
filtrate. The basic unit has a cell assembly constructed of
rustproof anodized aluminum and chrome plated brass, and includes
the required screen and gas
Working pressure is 100 psig and the filtering area is 7.1-in2, as
specified in the American
Petroleum Institute, API Recommended Practice 13B-1 and 13B-2.

The RIGCHINA low pressure/low temperature filter press design
features a cell body to hold the mud sample, a pressure inlet, and
a base cap with screen and filter paper. Suitable for field and
laboratory use, these units have become the industry standard for
low pressure/low temperature filtration testing.
RIGCHINA also manufactures other types of filter press units and
inventories a full line of replacement and consumable parts.
Stainless steel cases are available for most of the units. When
several tests must be run simultaneously, as in a laboratory
environment, multi-units are available in either two, four, or six-
cell designs. These multi-units come complete with manifolds and
all necessary air hoses and bleed-off valves.
The field portable units are supplied with various pressurization
assemblies and manifolds and rely mainly on carbon dioxide bulbs
and nitrogen gas to provide pressure. The American Petroleum
Institute (API) recommends a standard 1001.0 psi (6906.9 kPa) cell
pressure be applied within 30 seconds for a 30 minute test.
