Cricketfilters®

The Cricketfilter® technology has been developed to separate solid particles from a liquid in such a way that the solid particles can be discharged if dry matter or a slury. Liquid losses are kept to an absolut minimum. The Cricket®  filtration process is a batch process based on cake filtration and is fully automated.

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.

Wet Cake Discharge

Cricketfilters® with wet cake discharge are perfectly suitable for applications where either the cake formation is too low for dry discharge, the disposal is cheap (regeneration for wet discharge is shorter) or the product needs to be transportable by pump. As no bottom valve needs to be installed the wet cake discharge filter it the easiest layout of the Cricketfilter.

Thickening System

The Cricketfilter® can also be used as thickening system, if a higher concentration of a product is required. These thickening applications can be found e.g. in front of other filter systems. The Cricketfilters® thickening system can also be used to replace conventional equipment. The cone is specially designed for easier and faster sedimentation.

Cricketfilter® with Septum Plate

Filtration Group Cricketfilters are based on the current leading technology for cake filtration. The new developed septum plate range unifies the advantages of PTS polish and Cricketfilters.

By using the standard type I Cricket element with 1500 mm length, proven drain and top cloths can be used. The range is an excellent solution for processes where space is limited, high flows are combined with limited amounts of solids or for limited flows. Also this range is the answer for most processes where a polish filter is needed.

No internal manifolds, therefore no spray nozzle or height indication needed. This results in a lower investment and less maintenance.
