New innovative plate design improves profits through an increase in capacity, decrease in residual moisture with easier and safer maintenance.
Low residual moisture
Reduced operational costs due to improved mechanical life
Easier and safer plate handling
Outotec Hybrid CC Filter Plates are different to conventional fi lter plates. The design incorporates a plastic frame with ceramic sheets and integrated fastening hubs, making the plates 40% lighter allowing for quicker, safer maintenance to the fi lter, as well as a decreased likelihood of damaging the plate during installation.
A key driver for the product development was gaining a better understanding of our customer’s needs and challenges and how we could assist in addressing these issues.
The typical requirements for our customers in the dewatering process is production capacity, residual moisture in the cake and operational costs. We understand that our customers require a reliable and cost effective fi ltration method for dewatering slurries. Reduced residual moisture levels is key to the filtration process, our fi lter plates have shown a considerable reduction in residual moisture levels with better binding resistance and improved backwash results.
Our Hybrid CC plates were therefore designed in close collaboration with our customers as an innovative solution to reduce maintenance costs through improved mechanical life span offering a lower fl ow resistance inside the plates resulting in higher flow rates boosting the performance of the filter.
The specialized plate fastening bolt automatically ensures the correct torque during installation for optimal tightening resulting in reduced operational costs through shorter shutdown times and improved mechanical life.
