New datasheets available for amaBond LR & BR filter cartridges designed for high viscosity media like resins, inks and paints

amafilter – LFC Lochem (Filtration Group Process Systems) offers resin bond filter cartridges designed for high viscositiy media like resins, inks and paints.

The amaBond LR can filter liquids up to 3,000 centipoise. Depending on the process conditions even higher viscosity liquids can be filtered.

The amafilter – LFC Lochem amaBond LR filter cartridge has an unique design: two-stage filtration.

First stage, an outer spiral wrap pre-filter for retaining larger particles. The second stage (inner layer) will retain particles at the rated micron.

The amaBond BR cartridge can filter liquids up to 10,000 centipoise. The one piece construction of the amaBond LR & BR eliminates the possibility of breaking or liquid bypass.

We’ve updated the product information for these cartridges in our productdatabase and updated the datasheets.

Multiple amafilter – LFC Lochem MVWDCD suitable for paraffin wax (88 m2 filtration area) in carbonsteel

parafine-wax-filters-2

At our location in Lochem, the Netherlands, approx. 120 employees are dedicated to solid-liquid-filtration. From the laboratory to the engineering department, from sales to the highly skilled welders and fabricators in our manufacturing plant. Every time we finish a filter, it is a proud moment for our team. No matter how small …or, in this case, large: the amafilter – LFC Lochem MVWDCD in carbon steel.

The application:

Paraffin wax is a white or colourless soft solid that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms. It is solid at room temperature and begins to melt above approximately 37 °C (99 °F); its boiling point is >370 °C (698 °F). Common applications for paraffin wax include lubrication, electrical insulation, and candles; dyed paraffin wax can be made into crayons.

Paraffin wax was first created in 1830 in Germany, and marked a major advancement in candlemaking technology, as it burned more cleanly and reliably than tallow candles and was cheaper to produce.

parafine-wax-filters-1

What makes these filters suitable for paraffin wax filtration?

These pressure leaf filters (a customer ordered 4x MVWDCD-2000/1500/88 in carbonsteel) are suitable for the filtration of catalyst particles from a paraffin wax stream. The filters are carbon steel pressure leaf filters with 88 m2 filtration area. These vertical pressure leaf filters feature a half pipe heating jacket to keep the paraffin on temperature because otherwise the paraffin solidifies and will block the filter. These filters are suitable for wet- and dry-cake discharge.  The design pressure of these filters is 19 bar and the maximum design temperature is high (225 C). The filter is mounted with a special designed bottom cake discharge valve as the valve has to meet the highest industry standards. The filter is also fitted with Kalrez gaskets / O-rings to meet the suspension aggressiveness. 

Again these filters are proudly made in our manufacturing plant in Lochem, the Netherlands by Filtration Group Process Systems – amafilter – LFC Lochem.

Another “special’ Cricketfilter with dry cake discharge for a satisfied customer in the pharmaceutical market.

cricketfilter CRI-610D-2- 750x750

Currently we have many small and large projects in progress at Filtration Group Process Systems – amafilter – LFC Lochem. One filter that was finished this week, not the largest one, is a special Cricketfilter with dry cake discharge, specifically designed for a customer in the pharmaceutical industry.

Cricketfilter with dry cake discharge

Cricketfilters with dry cake discharge are used e.g. for the filtration of activated carbon or animal fat. These systems create the least product waste (residual liquid content can be reduced to 20% for specific applications). Cricketfilters with dry cake discharge can also be used, when the solids are the product and the customer wants it as pure as possible (washing is an option). The big valve at the bottom guarantees a proper discharge of the dried cake.

Satisfied customer

After earlier deliveries, recently our customer ordered another “special” Cricketfilter with dry cake discharge, specifically designed for their application. The filter is constructed with special  alloys and stainless steel 904L internals.
