Agitated Filter is a closed vessel designed to separate solid and liquid by filtration under pressure or vacuum. The closed operation ensures odorless, contamination free and nonpolluting working conditions maintaining product purity and hygiene. The advanced technology of agitation and hydraulics used in the equipment makes it versatile and user friendly. The resulting wet cake can be reslurried and washed thoroughly with water or solvents unlike in” NUTSCHE” type filters or centrifuges. Wash liquid quantity can be controlled and recycled, reducing effluent load. The discharge of wet cake is automatic. If the process demands filtration in chilled or hot condition, it is also possible. Drying of wet cake is also possible when drying features are incorporated.
The equipment is functionally safe and easy to operate. It can carry out various phase of process operations, viz: Crystallization , filtration, extraction, Discoloration, Washing and drying. The number of conventional machines employed for filtration process are also reduced. It has multi- functional utility, saves on power, labor, floor space, material wastage and time.
