  • Evaluation of a Continuous-Indexing Vacuum Belt Filter As a Replacement for Filter Presses For the Manufacture of a High-Value Specialty Chemical Product

    Introduction Solid-liquid separation can be accomplished by pressure or vacuum filtration in a batch or continuous mode. Generally, following filtration, the cake must be washed and subsequently dried. The choice of technology depends upon a wide range of parameters of the solids (i.e. crystal size and distribution, type and shape), liquids (type, temperature, and viscosity) and the process ...
