Pilot Plant / Test Filters and Facilities

Capabilities

Situated at our Melbourne facility is a full range of pilot plant test filters as well as facilities for leaf scale and slurry analysis.

We recommend initial laboratory testing be conducted to determine filterability and to give an indication of the type of filter required.

Preliminary assessment of filter media requirements, discharge type and filtration rate are also determined.

Following successful laboratory testing, we recommend pilot filtration tests on site under actual operating conditions be conducted. For this purpose we can provide self-contained pilot filter stations as follows:

Rotary Drum Filter

  • Dimensions 0.9m2
  • 316 stainless steel wetted parts
  • Mounted on skid complete with accessories such as vacuum pump, vacuum receivers, filtrate pump and control panel.
  • All pre-piped to form a single easily transportable unit

Pressure Leaf Filter

Bench top Pressure Leaf Filter of 0.06m2 constructed of 316 stainless steel complete with accessories is available. It is skid mounted suitable for laboratory scale pressure filtration test work.

Pulse Tube Filter
