Gas consumption, solids throughput and residual cake moisture - relation between operating expenses and process results fo rotary filters

Anlauf, Harald

During the operation of continuously operating rotary vacuum and pressure filters a gas flow arises through the partially deliquored filter cake. This gas flow is determining significantly the energy demand of the process and thus the operating expenses. To maintain the filtration pressure for cake formation and deliquoring the gas flow must be exhausted in the case of vacuum filtration and be delivered in the case of pressure filtration by the compressor into the filter housing. The necessary expenses in form of gas consumption are corresponding with the process results in form of solids throughput and residual cake. One question to be answered is, whether a certain cake moisture can be achieved most energy efficient with regard to the ratio of demanded gas consumption per unit solids produktion. As variable parameters the relation of cake formation and cake deliquoring angle in the filters control head, the rotation speed of the filter, the gas pressure difference and the slurry concentration had been selected for this investigation. For the formation of approximately incompressible filter cakes, their desaturation and the paralle ... mehr
