High efficiency

Filtration, extraction and washing of solids from liquids are the primary methods for producing biofuels and other alternative products made from renewable resources. These continuous treatment steps can be reliably performed by our systems, especially our indexing belt filters (type BF). This system is characterized by high performance with optimum efficiency. We offer customer-oriented machine solutions, whether for producing alternative energies or for the recycling of residuals.

Dilute Stream Solid-Liquid Separations Using Continuous Vacuum Filtration Technologies

Continuous solid-liquid separation, by vacuum or pressure, are integral components of a processing scheme to produce energy from algae, biomass or other types of slurries. In solid-liquid separation systems, there are a wide variety of parameters that influence their performance. These include, for example, particle size and shape, type of particle (i.e. soft, gelatinous, discrete), density, concentration of solids in the slurry, viscosity, cake height, pressure or vacuum, and filter media. Continuous vacuum belt filters and continuous rotary pressure filters have been used to dewater these types of slurries. This presentation will focus on dewatering unit operations, test data and field installations.
