A disc filter consists of several discs. Each disc is made up of several pie-shaped sections. Disc filters can operate as either vacuum disc filters or pressurized disc filters. Because a pressure differential is applied across both disc faces, the effective filter area of a disc filter is much greater than that of a drum filter requiring the same floor space.
A Precoat Disc Filter can function as either a vacuum disc filter or a pressurized disc filter.
Ceramic filters are used to dewater mineral concentrates and pelletising feed slurries. Micro porous ceramic discs replace conventional filter cloth. Capillary action draws liquid through the pores, and only a small vacuum pump is required, resulting in significantly reduced energy consumption.
The range of capillary action filters available covers a variety of process sizes and throughput requirements. Filtering capacity can reach as high as 100 tons an hour per unit.
With more size options and lower power consumption than with conventional vacuum filters, this product can offer greater productivity for your filter system.
