The Double - Side - Filtration

Why is the “DS” called “DS” ?


1. The filter cake is formed on both sides of the chamber
2. The filtrate flows into two directions
3. The filter cloth is on both sides of the chamber

RB-SV filter – development
• Delivery of RB filters since 1980
Top class machine but very hard competition
• 1989 initial idea to develop improved design
• 1995 Started
• Prototype 2,4 m2 – given long test run with client
• 1999 1st production started up
• pilot filter’s 0,5 & 2,0 m2 available
• Currently 15 units successfully in operation

Features counter current washing
• Reduction of fresh wash input
• For 3 x counter current washing, reduction in
wash liquor is approx. 30%

• Reduction in wash liquor output


• Reduction in waste treatment cost

• More concentrated wash liquid out


• Reduces downstream processing cost
(evaporation, crystallisation etc.)

• Disadvantage: more filter area required

RB-SV filter – applications
• Large particles (very fast filtration)
• Short cycle times (high belt speeds)
• High flow rates
• Chemical resistance(inorganic processes)
• Crystallising or scaling filtrates (saturated slurry)
(belt wash keeps filtration channels clean)
• Separation of filtrates by snap blow concept

• Pressure & Vacuum Filter

Outotec Larox® LSF
Adsorption Filtration vs. Screen/Sieve Filtration

• Adsorption filtration causes micronic


and submicronic particles to adhere to
the filter medium despite being small
enough to pass through its pores.

• Filter aids (precoat and/or body


feed) are unnecessary in almost all
applications.

85 3/14/2018 Outotec
© Outotec - All rights reserved
Outotec Larox® LSF
Adsorption Filtration vs. Screen/Sieve Filtration

• Laminar (non turbulent) flow


and low pressure drop ensure
particles adhere to the surface of
the filter medium.

• Low pressure drop ensures


formation of an open (uncompressed)
cake structure and a high filtrate
quality.

• Constant flow filtration ensures


maximum capacity and minimum
disturbance with high filtrate quality.
