An agitated Nutsche filter isolates and separates solids from a solvent. The filtration technique is most often used in wastewater treatment, pharmaceutical production and dye and paint production.
Originally, Nutsche filters featured an open vessel that separated materials through suction. Modernization of the filtration process enclosed the vessels, allowing for agitation and pressurization. In a closed filter system, you also have greater control over the pH and environmental temperature.
Nutsche filters typically contain four parts:
Nutsche filter dryers combine filtration with drying, which is distinct from filters that only dry. By using a high-torque, low-RPM agitator, a Nutsche filter dryer allows for repeatable and thorough drying.
Some of the advantages of using Nutsche filter dryers include:
