Candle filters utilize groups of columnar filter elements sealed within a pressure vessel to produce a cake with dry solids contents as high as 80% and filtrate of extremely high clarity. Filtration is completely contained, making candle filters an ideal choice for processing solvents, concentrated acids and other toxic products.
Typical Candle Filter Applications:
- Pulp and paper (recausticizating)
- Alumina (specialty hydrates)
- Precious metal catalysts
- Filtrate and concentrate polishing
Menardi manufactures and supplies all types of filter socks for use in candle filter applications, including filters with our Mikrotex® PTFE membrane for exceptional efficiency.
