This pilot allows the study of the filtration on support. The method comprises circulating a fluid containing solid particles through a support (web, felt, membrane, ...) on which the particles are deposited in the form of a cake of increasing thickness. The more or less pure filtrate according to the texture of the support and the dimensions of the particles passes through the support, it is the filtration on cake. The operation is performed here discontinuously.
This filter press makes it possible to study the variations of performances for different hydraulic conditions imposed (constant flow, variable pressure or constant pressure and variable flow).
The pneumatic diaphragm pump offers a wide range of flow rates. It works up to 5 bars.
This type of pump is suitable for receiving viscous, filled or abrasive solutions and is not damaged in case of operation without any liquid.
