Starch Recovery Systems

FC vacuum filters

SiccaDania’s rotating vacuum filters are especially suitable for washing and dewatering of slurries. With high efficiency the slurries are processed and the starch recovered.

Versatile vacuum filter designed on basis of a multi-cell filter drum with the opportunity to disconnect individual zones from vacuum or create different vacuum pressures in different drum zones. In practice, this enables simultaneous cake washing and dewatering and even cake blowback at the cake discharge side. The FC type vacuum filter can be equipped with multiple discharge systems such as continuous belt discharge, scraper beam, string system and roller discharge. The versatility makes the filter suitable for a wide span of applications.

Description

The FP type vacuum filter is fitted with a multi-cell filter drum and a slurry pan allowing for drum submergence in the product up to 34% depending on the selected discharge system.

Sedimentation of starch in the slurry pan is prevented by an effective oscillating rake agitator. When selecting the continuous belt discharge system an automatic belt cleaning device is incorporated.

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