Conditioning of catalysts

Separation and recovery

In the chemical industry, catalysts are used for influencing reaction processes in a wide variety of process steps. While high-quality materials must be used, the difficult handling of these materials is another important factor to consider. Our filter systems, such as our indexing belt filters (type BF), candle filters (type CF), pressure plate filters (type PF), and in certain cases, our Autopress (type AP) are used for reliable separation and recovery of catalysts in the process of solid-liquid separation.

Thin-cake filtration technologies for removing activated carbon, catalysts and other trace solids from Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) slurries

This article discusses the use of thin-cake vertical candle filters and horizontal pressure plate filters as alternatives to manual and conventional filter equipment. These new technologies are described as well as the selection process. The article includes test data and case histories and concludes with a discussion of clean-in-place operations and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) guidelines. ANSI/ISA S88 (and IEC 61512-1 in the international arena) batch process control system standards are also examined for validation. Finally, factory and site acceptance testing is described.

Thin-Cake Filtration Technologies for Removing Activated Carbon, Catalysts and Other Trace Solids from Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) Slurries

The BHS technologies of Vertical Candle Filters and Horizontal Pressure Plate Filters provide improved product quality with more efficient operations compared with manual pressure filters. The different technologies allow for the selection of the optimum process solution depending upon the cake characteristics and cake structure. Fully automatic operations provide for complete containment of the solids and liquids for reduced maintenance costs and overall project savings.
