Save Money with Automatic Filter Press Technology From Filtra-Systems

Looking for efficiency? Converting traditional manual processes to automated processes is a great place to start. When it comes to your industrial filtration system needs, Filtra-Systems’ Verti-Press offers a great alternative to replace your traditional manual filter press. How does an automatic filter press work differently? Conceptually, it operates the same as a manual plate and frame filter, except that the process doesn’t require a skilled laborer to monitor the process. Chambers are also oriented horizontally, to evenly distribute slurry across the filter belts. A diaphragm compresses filter cakes, further dewatering them, and helping to optimize process conditions.

What is the value of automation? Time, certainty, and energy savings can all be improved by an automatic pressure filter from Filtra-Systems. The fewer man-hours needed to operate a manual filter press, the more time that can be allocated towards other areas of the company. The automatic filter press can be rapidly cycled, and gone is the time spent manually scraping plates.

Without the need for workers to maintain the filter press, there is much less risk for human error. An automatic pressure filter substantially reduces the risk of operational mistakes. The automation results in a much more cost efficient process, is safer, and produces much more accurate results.

Companies are striving to increase their green energy impact on society. The initiative sweeping the industry to grow a green energy image is significant. Automatic filter presses from Filtra-Systems result in more energy efficient processes by reducing labor and human error that occurs in manual processes.

An In-Depth Look at Filtra-Systems Bag and Cartridge Filters

Filtra-Systems cartridge filters are an extremely flexible option for any industrial filtration system. There are multiple types of cartridge material offered, that can operate in temperatures between 0 and 248 degrees Fahrenheit. Filtra-Systems cartridges are available in nylon, polyester, or polypropylene in sizes from 0.2 to 100 micron. Whatever your cartridge needs may be, there is undoubtedly a solution that Filtra-Systems can provide.

Filtra-Systems cartridge filter housings were specifically designed to exceed the industry standards. Filtra-Systems offers cartridge filter housings that fit Type 226, Type 222, or DOE filter cartridges. Depending on the system, these cartridges are capable of processing anywhere from 1 to 1200 gallons per minute. Additionally, Filtra-Systems has specifically developed filter media to be used in cartridge filter housings that support whatever your filtration needs may be.

Bag filters are an opportunity for increased savings and reduced costs. Filtra-Systems offers a wide variety of filter bags. Some of the filter bag options include nylon monofilament mesh, activated carbon, and polyester bags. Additionally, Filtra-Systems offers filter bags for oil absorption and removal. The purpose of these filters is to trap and remove solid particulate while minimizing fiber migration and material bypass. Filtra-Systems filter bags are highly efficient and made to stand the test of time. Higher quality filter bags leads to fewer replacements and reduced maintenance costs.

The Future of Industrial Water Filtration: 5 Ways the Industry is Changing

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, industrial water is the fastest growing industry of the global water market and industrial water filtration is a large part of that. It is anticipated to grow by more than 50% in the next five years, from $7 billion in 2015 to $11 billion in 2020.

1. The oil industry is expected to double to $4.5 billion in 2020. As a result, this will create opportunities for desalination technologies (desalination is an important part of enhanced oil recovery). It also presents a need to handle challenging wastewater streams for zero liquid discharge applications.

2. Technology suppliers in the food and beverage industry are developing anaerobic industrial water filtration treatment technologies that are more efficient and easier to operate. Additionally, industrial facility operators can use these industrial water filtration systems to take advantage of biogas production to increase energy efficiency.

3. The mining industry consistently faces competition for water resources. Additionally, they must also find a way to handle the higher volumes of wastewater. There is a large opportunity for improvement in this industry for removing cyanides from wastewater following the processing of gold ore.

4. It is reported that the majority of innovations in treatment technologies occurs in dissolved solids removal; the goal being to improve the efficiency of the reverse osmosis (RO) process by reducing energy usage. Another goal is to deal with the high TDS in RO reject water and produced water from unconventional oil & gas wells.

5. As the industrial water filtration industry grows it continues to become a large factor in other industries as well. Concerns associated with water scarcity are on the rise, and therefore industrial water filtration options become more of a prevalent topic. Industries such as chemical and pharmaceutical have started adopting more sustainable treatment practices and designs. Formerly, water treatment in these industries focused on pre-treatment requirements. Both of these industries have begun to take a different approach towards industrial water filtration within their plants. Developments in these industries are the reasons that the industrial water filtration industry is in a constant state of development and improvement.
