Facing challenges in slurry handling?
Enhance your filtering throughput rates and lower filter cake moisture content, even handling complex materials, thanks to a special equipment design and strategic application of protective coatings to prevent vacuum leakage.
In operations dealing with complex run-of-mine materials, additional grinding is necessary to liberate impurities, resulting in a significant reduction of particle size. This reduction influences the filtering process, affecting the capacity of the filtering plant and increasing the moisture content of the filter-cake. As a result, downstream processes, such as agglomeration and firing steps, are negatively impacted. Many of the customers using our equipment experience significant benefits, including a 40% increase in filtering rate and a reduction of 0.5% (absolute) in moisture content on the filter cake, compared to the standard vacuum disk filter technology.
MINIMAL DOWNTIME & MORE THROUGHPUT
Metal7’s Vacuum Disc Filter is the most efficient equipment in terms of design and performance. It optimizes filtering capacity by providing steady throughput with minimal downtime. This leads to a significant improvement in tonnage and moisture content in the filter cake, lowering energy consumption in the drying step of the firing process.
PROVEN COATING, ROBUSTNESS & LOWER COSTS
The application of proprietary surface coating technologies on critical components leads to robust sealing and equipment availability. Leakages are minimized and maintenance frequency is reduced so achieving stable performance at a low operating cost.
LOWER MOISTURE CONTENT ON THE FILTER CAKE
Benefit from a distinctive mechanical design, Metal7 vacuum disk filters reduce load loss in the vacuum tubes, providing more vacuum to the sectors. It is translated into a higher air flow rate for filter cake formation and drying steps.
BENEFITS & FEATURES
- Enhanced sealing of the system, reducing leakage and a steady high performance over time.
- Increased productivity and extended operational life.
- Proven consistency of filter cake moisture content at all filter throughput levels.
