This is a combination of filter and dryer unit in single equipment to achieve economy in process, space and energy thereby improving profitability. This equipment can be used in manufacturing process of various Pharmaceuticals, Intermediate Compounds, Fine Chemicals, Chemicals, Agro Chemicals, Pesticides, Insecticides, Dyes and Food Products.
The Agitated Nutsche filter is a Nutsche type filter designed to separate solids from liquids, it is totally enclosed and is normally operated under pressure or under vacuum. Additionally, the equipment is fitted with a stirrer mechanism which efficiently agitates the slurry during cake washing, smooths and squeezes the cake during filtration and assists in the automatic discharge of the cake. The ANF comprises of a pressure vessel in which a main shaft rotates and also moves in the vertical direction. Specially designed stirrer blades are mounted on the shaft, capable of performing various functions.
