Filter cake is removed from the plates of a horizontal plate filter by means of torsional vibrations of the plates. For good vibration isolation from the surrounding objects the application of a new vibration absorber technique is suggested for the vibrational design of the apparatus. The design includes the consideration of damping forces between cake and plates. The theoretical results are confirmed by experiments with a simplified model.
