Tilting pan filter
The ANDRITZ tilting pan filter has been part of our product range since 1979.
There are over 300 tilting pan filters installed worldwide. Large filter sizes - some in excess of 200 square meters - eliminate the need for multiple smaller filters.
This filter is used primarily in the manufacturing of phosphoric acid from phosphate rock, and specifically in the dehydrate, hemihydrate, and the combined hemihydrate and dehydrate processes. The filter offers the facility to discharge the solids as a wet cake or dry cake, and provides exceptional wash efficiencies, in addition to maximum process control. In addition to phosphoric applications, the tilting pan filter has been used in metallurgical applications, such as copper ore, and in specialized applications, such as activated carbon.
