Sparkler® Manual Nutsche Filter
The Sparkler® Manual Nutsche Filter utilizes a vertical tank with a single horizontal plate mounted down in the tank. It is offered for special applications in which high bulk, easily filtered solids are processed through a variable thickness. These filters can be built in accordance with almost any individual specifications and/or applications.
The basket allows the user to easily remove all cake buildup for processing or disposal.The Sparkler® Basket Filter is similar to the Nutsche design, but features a basket which hangs down into the vessel and has a horizontal filter plate attached to the bottom.
Both designs can be supplied according to user specification and can be operated using either pressure or vacuum. Vessels can be built with a variety of materials. All media available for standard horizontal plate filters can be used with the Nutsche/Basket filters.
Sparkler® Model WD Filter
The Sparkler® Model WD Filter is an automatic nutsche filter equipped with special impeller blades for agitation and cake discharge. This single piece of equipment processes your product through filtration, washing, drying, and cake discharge operations, effectively replacing three pieces of process equipment: a filter, a agitator, and a dryer.
All sizes of WD filters can be offered as a manual unit or can be fully automated.
By means of rotation with an hydraulic motor and vertical motion using a hydraulic cylinder driving a special impeller, the WD filter provides five different functions as illustrated below.
