Organic filter aids provide a reusable alternative to traditional filters
The variety of organic filters specifically designed for precoat filtration is a powerful and economical solution for nearly every filtration task. Today, a lot of huge industries worldwide have embraced the organic filter aids.
Filtration is used to separate solids from liquids or gases using a filter medium that allows the fluid to pass, but not the solid. The term “filtration” applies regardless of the filtering methods, which can be mechanical, biological, or physical. The fluid that passes through the filter is called the filtrate. The process will separate the filtration liquids and the solid matter.
Organic filter aids are particularly suitable as a powerful, cost-saving and environmentally friendly alternative to kieselguhr and perlite.
Effective drainage action
Due to flexible, pressure-elastic and structuring properties, organic filter aids can be used without problems on all common precoat filter systems. The variety of products specifically developed for varied application provides a powerful and economical solution for almost every filtration task.
Organic filter auxiliaries are the preferred way to provide pressing and dewatering aids. The very effective drainage action of organic fibers leads to measurably higher throughputs and product yields (filtrate), shortened pressing cycles and higher dry substance contents in the solid matter. Organic filter aids thoroughly keep mucus and particles back and the result is higher flow rates for increased efficiency. They cause less wear and tear and thus less service of your equipment, which is economically sound as well. An additional bonus is that fibers reliably prevent the smearing of cloths and makes the cleaning of the filter elements much easier.
Reusable compounds for maximized profit and sustainability
After using the organic filter aids they don’t have to be thrown out. The used filters can be recycled. Recommended uses could be as feed for pigs / animals or the residual materials can be used in the production of briquets for burning.
The most widely use of filter aids is in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. In the food industry the filter aid is used for adding strength to products and they are also in use for the production of drinks, fruit juices and spirits. Filter aids are also used by the Metal Industry and for enhanced Sewage technology and sludge treatment. The conclusion is that there are very few restrictions to the areas of application of organic filter aids. For certain types of application however, it can be an advantage to use mixtures of organic and mineral components.
