:: WesTech Introduces Two Additional Filtration Products


WesTech Engineering, Inc. is further extending its filtration capability by introducing its Rotary Table Vacuum Filter and Ceramic Disc Filter to the industrial and minerals markets.


The WesTech Rotary Table Vacuum Filter is a continuous filtration unit ideal for handling large flow rates. The horizontal orientation of the rotary table enables a thick filter cake to form on the surface. The filter features a uniquely designed cake discharge system which utilizes an extraction screw mechanism to remove the dewatered cake from the table and deposit it into a hopper. After discharge, the filter cloths are carefully washed and the filtration process continues. The WesTech Rotary Table Vacuum Filter is an ideal alternative to horizontal belt filters, rotary drum vacuum filters, and filter presses.


The WesTech Ceramic Disc Filter provides superior cake-drying performance while using only 10-25% of the power consumption used by comparable traditional disc filters. The one-piece, pressure-formed disc technology also provides higher backwash pressure and longer-lasting filter media.


Both products deliver optimum production performance and availability for maximum dewatering in a wide range of industrial and minerals applications, including fine iron or concentrates, leach residues, metallurgical precipitates, and more.

“These technologies extend WesTech’s ability to directly provide full systems solutions to its customers," said Philip Lake, International Business Unit Leader of WesTech Engineering. “WesTech also is now poised to provide spare parts and service to existing rotary table vacuum filter and ceramic disc filter operators around the world, at a service level and price that will be extremely competitive."
