A Treatise of Filter Cake Washing Mechanisms in Pressure and Vacuum Filtration Systems
During many chemical operations, cake washing is required since no filter system can remove all of the mother liquor by pressure or vacuum dewatering only. The topic of how to most efficiently wash the cake is important. This article introduces pragmatism into cake washing theory and will help engineers during their decision-making processes.
What Does It Cost To Own Your Dust Collector Filters?
When choosing filters for your cartridge dust collector, a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculation allows you to make the most economical and sustainable choice. TCO is a step-by-step evaluation that explores energy use, maintenance and other factors to compare the real costs of operating a dust collector with different filters. This white paper explains how to perform TCO calculations to save money, time and energy.
