Micronics launches new filtration product with better cycle time
The Micronics Engineered Filtration Group has launched a wet filtration product, the MicroPress, a 150 mm filter press that is available both as a rental unit for pilot testing and for purchase as a small, bench-scale filtration unit. The MicroPress is assembled in Micronics’ Dover, NH, USA filter press facility, and most components are U.S.- sourced.
Micronics’ MicroPress has a single chamber with a head plate and tail plate and can allow testing for cake thicknesses ranging from 15 mm up to 60 mm. The MicroPress is equipped with both Membrane Squeeze and Cake Blow capabilities features .The pre-squeeze cake volume with the MicroPress ranges from 122 – 486 mL.
The MicroPress is useful for evaluating a new process or for identifying process improvements for existing applications, including achieving faster cycle times and drier filter cakes.
