The Rotavac Lab – Laboratory Scale Rotary Drum Vacuum Filter

The laboratory-scale rotary drum vacuum filter (RDVF) has a filtration area of 0.1m² and is often used as a preliminary step to pilot equipment trials. This unit is a scaled down version of the larger rotary drum vacuum filter units. It is used to ascertain if this type of equipment is suitable for any given application but can also help determine choice of filter medium and the filtration properties of a suspension. The equipment offers the advantage of an easily interchangeable discharge system so that different configurations can be trialled if required. It includes a control panel for modifying drum and agitator speeds and, when using a precoat discharge, the knife advance rate. An integral feed tank, mixer and feed pump is included with the rotary drum vacuum filter.

The Rotavac One – Pilot Scale Rotary Drum Vacuum Filter

The pilot-scale rotary drum vacuum filters have a nominal 1.3m² filtration area and are robust and reliable industrial machines for installation directly into a process plant. The filters, one with a scraper knife discharge system (Rotavac One S) and the other with a precoat knife discharge system (Rotavac One P), are normally supplied as a complete filter station which include the filtrate receiver, filtrate pump, vacuum pump, blower and control panel. These filters are ideal for larger test programmes under actual manufacturing conditions.
