EIMCO-K.C.P. Agidisc Filter is a vertical leaf rotary vacuum filter particularly adapted to filtration of rapid settling solids. It is widely used in dewatering metallurgical slurries of all types, including coal. A horizontal paddle agitator effectively maintains solids in suspension and prevents uneven cake formation.
primary application is in the dewatering phase of the flow sheet.
Most advantageous applications are dewatering of solids which are free settling and from into an easily discharged, non blinding cake.
Maximum filtration area is provided at minimum cost and operating space.
Due to its design, utilizing a filtering surface in a vertical plane, washing of the filter cake is very limited. Guided scraper provides for discharge of thin cakes, reduces wear on media. Wide variety of media – stainless steel screens, cloth and synthetic fabrics are available. Filtering areas range from 2 to 300 m2.
