Vacuum filters

FP vacuum filters

Vacuum filters are designed for solid dewatering and fluid clarification with a precoat of for example diatomaceous earth, cellulose or starch. The FP filter meets the latest requirements in terms of energy consumption and uptime. The design is about robustness, ease of operation and durability.

The FP type vacuum filter is fitted with a single cell filter drum and a slurry pan allowing for drum submergence in the product up to 34%. This allows for flexibility in the production capacity. Depending on the precoat selection, the uptime of the filtration process is prolonged by allowing for an increased precoat layer thickness on the filter drum. A calculated number of drum suction pipes in combination with the right vacuum pump selection warrants a minimal cake humidity hence a maximum effluent discharge. A high-pressure drum cleaning spray bar ensures minimal downtime for residual precoat drop.

Sedimentation of starch in the slurry pan is prevented by an effective oscillating rake agitator. The scraper beam is fitted with specially hardened alloy scraper knives to ensure minimum wear.

Filter sizes available from 1m2 to 80m2 effective drum surface.
