Agitated Nutsch Filter
Chemical Process Plants and Equipment's
Designed to operate under either on vacuum or pressure in batch-operated industries such as fine chemicals, dyes, pharmaceuticals and particles.
Nutsch Filter is designed to perform a multitude of tasks including reaction filtration, cake washing, and thermal drying on a single unit.
Nutsch Filter normally consists of the vessel, the filter floor and cloth, the woven mesh screen or sintered metal plate medium, the re-slurry arms for cake washing and smoothing, and the cake discharge mechanism.
The Vessel: Being batch system vessel volume is designed to accommodate the total volume of slurry charge. Normally designed to operate at 2-3 kg./cm. Sq. pressure and vacuum operation.
The vessel's top dished end cover supports the agitator drive assembly as well hydraulic or mechanical system for lowering and raising the rotating augur and re-slurry paddle arms.
Shell will be provided with a limpet coil or jacket for heating or cooling requirements. The filter flow and filtering medium consists of a densely perforated plate sufficiently strong to hold the cake weight and pressure that is exerted on the cake’s surface.
