Continuous Vacuum Filtration Technologies for Sulfuric and Hydrochloric Acid SlurriesDownload Now
This white paper discusses highly acidic chemical process slurries and the use of continuous vacuum filtration technologies for filtration, cake washing and drying.
First, the basics and benefits of continuous vacuum filtration technologies are reviewed followed by case-studies. In this first process, the precipitated solids are in sulfuric acid slurry. The challenge is to process 2200 kg/hour of dry solids for filtration, counter-current washing and drying in a contained environment.
In this second process, the objective is to process precipitated solids in an hydrochloric acid slurry. The white paper concludes with a framework for vacuum technology selection and how this can be applied to other toxic and difficult chemical process filtrations.
