Chemical Processing

 

Dry salt discharged from the Oberlin Filter in a crystallizer application.

Benefits of the Oberlin Filter in Demanding Applications
  • Easy Operation

  • The Oberlin Filter produces Clean Liquids allowing reuse of fluids and Dry Solids for reclamation or disposal 

  • High efficiency removal of solids down to 1 micron

  • Fully automatic operation minimizes contact with hazardous materials

  • Self flushing & CIP options

  • Internal surfaces can be polished

  1. Cake Washing and CIP Options

  2. Includes all Necessary Valves and Pneumatics for Automatic Operation

  3. Filter has Stainless Steel Enclosure for the Safety of Personnel

  4. PLC Sequence Control

  5. Electricals per Oberlin Standards or Customer Specifications

 

High or Low Solids / High Temp / High Corrosion
  • High Solids: Ability to process application if solids dewater easily, automatic indexing pressure filter is the logical choice for up to 50 ft3 of solids /hour

  • Low Solids: Ability to process these application as well = (10 to 10,000 PPM)

  • High Temperature: Applications up to 260 °F,  Filter Platens can be heated to prevent freezing as well

  • High Corrosion: Filter external structures can be made entirely of 316 SS

  • Oberlin Filter’s Internal Wetted Structures can be made of corrosion resistant high Nickel alloys such as AL6XN, SMO254, C276 …

  • Crystallizers
  • Wet Scrubber
  • Reactor Separations/Cleanouts
  • Radioactive Processing

Dry solids discharged from filter

Evaporator Blowdown

Filter cake consists of salt crystals plus impurities discharged from an evaporator.

Salt Cake

Salt cake discharging from filter at the Burbank Water & Power.  The filter is used with a crystallizer in their Zero Liquid Discharge program.
