ANDRITZ Separation filtration solutions cover a wide range of technologies for solid-liquid separation. The filtration product range covers a broad portfolio, such as disc and drum filters, filter centrifuges, filter presses, belt presses, and decanter centrifuges. In particular, our Krauss-Maffei centrifuges, vacuum and drum filters, ANDRITZ overhead and sidebar filter presses, and decanter centrifuges are well-established and state-of-the-art mechanical separation technologies. Our many reference applications have been setting standards in the market for decades. Their unique designs are suitable for even the most difficult separation tasks.

At FILTECH 2018, ANDRITZ will be presenting product innovations such as the Krauss-Maffei dynamic crossflow filter for purifying nutraceuticals or concentrating active pharmaceutical ingredients without requiring consumables. As the filter achieves the highest possible retentate concentrations, the yield is optimized and production costs are reduced as a result.

The ANDRITZ decanter centrifuge A for industrial
and chemical applications is equipped with the
innovative Gentle Feeder inlet system

Another product innovation to be presented at FILTECH is the “Gentle Feeder” inlet system for decanter centrifuges developed on the basis of dynamic, multi-phase CFD simulations. The new design ensures gentle product flow and reduced grain breakage. Test runs have confirmed substantially improved solid-liquid separation abilities, with enhanced recovery rate and lower cake moisture in the solid product.
