Dead End Filtration Process
The FUNDABAC® Filter is based on dead end filtration where the feed liquid is pressed through a stationary filter media which retains the solids and lets the liquid pass. The solids accumulate on the filter media and form a cake which is removed intermittently. Although normally an automatic operation, by design this type of filter is a batch equipment which runs in cyclic mode performing a set of sequence steps. The main advantage is its ability to process the cake with add on steps such as washing, extraction, steaming and drying. Additionally, its heel volume filtration assures minimum product loss.
