NETZSCH: Slurry Drying Solutions

April 6, 2004

The Filtration Division of NETZSCH Inc. offers a mechanical dewatering system and thermal drying device combined into one compact unit for drying all types of slurries. This cake drying device is constructed with polypropylene membrane filter plates that can be retrofitted for existing presses. The system is available in both side bar and overhead beam designs for semi- or fully-automatic presses. Consisting of a honeycomb structure, the press' insulated heating elements quickly and efficiently guide the heat to the interior of the filter press. After the filtration stage, the heating elements are activated to start an energy-saving, low-temperature drying process. Optional sources of energy include hot water or steam.
