We have to filter used wax having 25 micron and bigger particles. After making molten state, which type of filter can be effectively used? The wax is heated and made molten state (90 degrees C) in a 500 liter capacity heated vessel. The filter elements specially designed get choked after each batch and cannot be reused resulting in very high cost. This replacement of filter element makes the reuse of wax uneconomical. Can you suggest a filter that can be used repeatedly?
Have an insight or suggestion?
