Continuous slurry and cake processing is accomplished using Rotary Drum Filters. The Rotary Drum Filter is used in many different fields including wastewater treatment, sludge dewatering, chemical manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, cosmetics, mineral mining and refining, and food processing. It's perfect for slurry with varying cake thickness, moisture content, and stickiness. A half-submerged drum lies in a tank of slurry. While the drum rotates, the vacuum pulls the liquid through the industrial filter, trapping the solids on the surface and creating the cake. As the drum moves through the sludge, the cake thickens.

By spraying water, air, and leftover liquor through the drum section into piping and a vacuum receiver when it emerges from the slurry tank, spray bars wash the cake. The drying zone is entered when the rotating vacuum drum filter begins to center toward the ceiling. The vacuum in the drum continues to suck air through the cake, further dewatering it.
Our rotary drum filters for the separation of liquids from solids offer great flexibility in meeting the needs of many industries.
Our experience ranges from simple separations to complex multi-stage applications involving filtration, clarification, extraction, cake washing, and drying.
