Exhibitor Profile

DrM – The specialist for solid/liquid separation

DrM’s products enjoy a worldwide market in various industries in the chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, steel and food production.

Our FUNDABAC® Filter family comprises a series of equipment specifically adapted for the process industries, with high demand on quality and productivity.

FUNDABAC® wet and dry discharge

The filtered solids are deliquored and discharged by gas back pulse. As an alternative, the cake can be reslurried in another liquid.

CONTIBAC® continuous thickening

This filter type allows continuous filtration without interruption of flow. The solids are flushed back into the liquid and discharged in slurry form.

FundaLoop Single-Use Filter – a Single-Use type Filter, with its unique multi-cycle operation capability, back-flushable and developed either for cell recovery or cell removal in batch, fed-batch and continuous/perfusion processes. It is available also with an incorporated discharge opening to allow accumulated solids to be back-flushed. This significantly increases the capacity at minimum footprint and reduces operating cost.

FUNDAMIX® Single-Use Mixer – with its proven vibratory mixing technology, which provides a high mixing efficiency at low shear forces and low energy consumption.

Press release

ContiLoop: Single-use multicycle filter for process intensification

The ContiLoop is the most sophisticated single-use cyclical cake filtration technology available worldwide. The operation of the filter in cycles, allows for back flush capabilities and filter cloth regeneration, a unique way to evade clogging and cloth fouling. The filter bag and manifold can easily and safely be assembled and dissembled following instructions given by the control panel. The cyclical nature allows the user to combine all the benefits of disposable technology while also prolonging the lifespan of one filter cloth.

The Key Benefits of ContiLoop include:

  • Very high filtration rate (2-3x higher than depth filters)
  • High filtrate quality (on par with depth filters)
  • Increased yield in cell recovery and enzyme recovery operations
  • Shorter reactor downtime due to reduced cleaning & validation requirements
  • Pre-sterilized and validated filter enclosure available for Pharma and Biotech applications
  • Reduced heel volume and compaction of solid waste
  • Fully enclosed containment made completely of plastics ensuring safe handling and disposal of hazardous components
  • Available in 3 sizes

Conference Presentation/s

ContiLoop Multi-Cycle Cake Filtration Versus Depth Filtration: Eliminating the Downstream Bottleneck

P. Morsch*, D. Stucchi, T. Bucher, DrM, Dr. Müller AG, Switzerland, C. Jerrold-Jones, DrM, USA

Conference Session: L10 - Advanced Filter Technology for Process Optimization - 2023-02-15 - 16:45

In recent years, single-use technology (SUT) has become more established and has contributed to a considerable increase in production efficiency. SUT has particularly excelled in the crisis-ridden, rapid development of production chains. Of particular importance here are disposable bioreactors in the upstream process, which make costly autoclaving processes unnecessary and allow the rapid linking and capacity expansion of individual unit operations through numbering-up strategies. In order to keep up with the great advances in the upstream process, the downstream processes such as filtration and mixing must also increase their capacity and efficiency. However, cell harvesting and downstream processing remain bottlenecks in production.

Typical clarification processes include primary and secondary clarification, e.g. centrifugation and depth filtration. Two sets of depth filters can be used for primary and secondary clarification, but their separation principle (clogging filtration) means that they quickly become clogged and have to be replaced. To avoid large waste flows, which is a disadvantage of the SUT, within a production cycle and to increase the flow rate, a cleanable filtration module is a remedy. To achieve this, it is necessary to switch to regenerable cake filtration. This principle is followed by the "filter in a bag" (CONTIBAC® SU), which allows cake discharge within a production cycle (multi-cycle) and thus increases the filtrate flow rate by a factor of 3. In addition, clogging of the modules is avoided and a single module can clean a higher process volume with a significantly larger solids content. In addition, this technology allows the combination of primary and secondary steps in one filtration step.

In this presentation we will compare this novel technology with already known SU filtration technology, the depth filtration. This evaluation will be based on flow rates, production yield, filtrate quality and space requirements. In addition, a process with a high solids content is used to show the advantage of this technology especially for cell harvesting of thick suspensions. In addition to a process-technical analysis of the technology, a commercial consideration of the use of these filters is also carried out...

As Package Engineer one of your main activities at the bid stage and/or Project commencement, will be the conceptual design and preparation of GAD (General arrangement layout drawings) for Skid packages; in order to give the Technical Design Office an overall concept of layout and pipe routing. This will ensure the design engineers can progress the detail design smoothly. You will further be required to develop the structural steel frame work design and the layout of other components within the skid package including items such as Pressure vessels, pumps, valves, instruments, cable trays, Junction boxes etc. along with a BOM (Bill of Material). This GAD along with the BOM will then be used as the basis for detailing the Skid package. Expertise with CAD (AutoCAD and/or ProEngineer Wildfire 4), ANSI B31.3 piping code and Steel structure design is mandatory. Experience with Pressure Vessel design (ASME VIII, PED etc.) will be an advantage, but is not mandatory.
You are an independent but team orientated individual, able to take total ownership of a project (circa USD 1M - 10M) at the conceptual stage, work together with our Sales team and Project Management team to provide technical and commercial back-up during the bid stage of the project, identify risk areas and reduce the companies exposure. After project order placement you will be the key individual for finalisation of the design and project, together with the client. You will be responsible for project planning, full budgetary control of the project, negotiation and procurement of all bought-out items of equipment and ensuring the completion of the project is on schedule, within budget and to the satisfaction of the client.
Experience:
You are a graduate Mechanical Engineer with around 10 years or more work experience. You should preferably have worked in engineering companies and/or in chemical, power or oil & gas industries,
