Dryer Filters

Drying is a common application used in many chemical industries. The chemical produced in a reactor is collected in the form of a wet paste. The paste is then fed to a dryer to remove the residual moisture and form dried product. Polyester and Acrylic felt filter bags are typically used. If the inlet temperature exceeds 130 deg C then aramid bags are recommended.

Membrane Benefits


If the powder is very fine, membrane filter bags are recommended. Membrane bags would lead to following benefits: 

  1. Higher filtration efficiency i.e., higher product yield
  2. Reduced pressure drop and higher flow rates
  3. Surface filtration reduces retention time of the product on the bags and provides better color and avoids product degradation.
