This filter reduces waste and makes cake-washing easy

The Fundabac filter operates automatically and is totally enclosed from the environment, preventing exposure to toxic or hazardous substances, such as mercury or hydrogen sulfide. The filters can accommodate varying solids loads and can remove particulate matter smaller than 1.0 μm. The self-cleaning, modular Fundabac system features an enclosed nitrogen-purged collection bin for cake disposal, and the cake can also be washed and dried in-situ. Waste is reduced, since the dry cake can be discharged in liquid-cleanup systems with relatively high or fluctuating impurity levels. Typical applications for the Fundabac filter include the following: amine filtration in acid-gas removal plants; mercury removal from crude oil; catalyst fine filtration in flue-gas processes; produced-water filtration; and removal of divalent salts in monoethylene glycol (MEG) regeneration processes. — DrM, Dr. Mueller AG, Maennedorf, Switzerland
