Outotec launches new service products for filters
Outotec launches new service products for filters, namely filter cloths and ceramic plates, which are tailored to perform with Outotec Larox® filters. Filter media are crucial for filtration efficiency.
New Outotec Larox Filter Cloths enable optimized performance and process results for each application and filter. The filter cloth collection covers the entire permeability range.
The Outotec Larox CC Plate family is now complemented with two new ceramic filter plates, the Red and Orange Plates, which allow for high discharge level and dry cake, extended filter life and high availability. Outotec Orange Plate is a filter medium with the original casted structure and a special fluorine resisting formula designed for challenging environments and processes emphasizing low cake moisture, for example base metal applications. Outotec Red Plate has a monolithic membrane structure with highly porous core layer and it is designed for processes emphasizing high capacity, for example ferrochrome applications.
"Efficient solid-liquid separation technology with tailored services leads to guaranteed availability and both economical and environmental benefits. Outotec Larox filtration solutions are designed in such a way that in most of the processes they help to achieve significant savings in energy and/or water consumption. Efficient filtration also leads to better quality waste water, thus reducing the environmental burden. These new service products further enhance the performance of filters and are available through Outotec's global Services network," says Kalle Härkki, President of Outotec's Services business area.
