The agitated Nutsche filter is a closed container designed to separate solids and liquids by filtration under pressure or vacuum or a combination of both.
The resulting wet cake can be repulped and thoroughly washed with water or solvent. The discharge of the wet cake is automatic. The wet cake can also be dried when the dry feature is added. The closed system ensures odorless, non-polluting and non-polluting working conditions, maintaining product purity and hygiene.
Universal Filter Media - The filter plate design allows the use of all types of filter media: cloth, single later metal screen, or multi-layer sintered metal.
Side Discharge Valve - Metal-to-metal seals with minimal dead space, eliminating the cleanability issues that can arise with the use of o-rings. The valve provides a pressure/vacuum-tight seal.
Heated Filter Plate - The fully welded design provides heat energy directly into the cake from the underside, allowing for heat transfer through all of the filter contact surfaces, for more efficient drying.
Gas-knife system ; small nozzles located underneath the S-blade agitator blow the heel of the product towards the discharge valve.
The equipment is functionally safe and easy to operate.
Toxic and hazardous material can be processed.
Product purity maintained
Blending of product possible before discharging.
Combining filtration, washing, re-slurry and drying in a fully enclosed automated unit thus reduction of capital and operating costs.
Large quantities can be processed faster than the conventional systems.
