  There are various reasons that make filtering necessary in processes. The raw materials might have impurities that require removal at the start of the process. After the initial mixing to produce the process slurry, the mother liquor could have solids that need a separation process. Unwanted solids could also form by a chemical reaction during the production of the process liquid. The nature of the...

Among the challenges of effective solid-liquid filtration is the accumulation of solids on the filter surface, which creates an increasingly dense mass that process fluid must push through. In many applications in the chemical process industries (CPI), a step-down filtration approach has the potential to avoid this difficulty, and at the same time, to cut operating costs and improve solution clarity. Even...
