:: Larox Upgrades the Patented Pannevis RB-CDV
Larox has successfully released into the marketplace an upgrade in the area of horizontal vacuum belt filters utilizing rubber carrier belt technology the Pannevis RB-SV filter. Evolving from the patented Pannevis RB-CDV filter, which has enjoyed considerable success in the chemical industry, the Pannevis RB-SV from Larox has successfully extended the range of application to heavy duty applications such as mining, minerals and metallurgy. Since its re-release in the 3rd quarter of 2006 orders have been booked for more than 20 RB-SV filters with over 1500m2 of filtration area, ranging from 1.2 up to 4.25m wide, and with applications varying from mining to fine chemicals.
The "parent" of the Pannevis RB-SV technology is the patented Pannevis RB-CDV Filter. The RB-CDV was the first major innovation in rubber carrier belt technology since its original introduction in the 1930s. The design relocates the vacuum box to the outer edge of the rubber belt instead of being in centre underneath the belt, eliminating the difficult access for cleaning and maintenance. In the RB-CDV design the vacuum box is sealed on the side on the belt, providing a laminar filtrate flow into the box. This works very well in many chemical industry and lighter duty washing installations. For the heavier duty applications Larox combined the benefits of the side mounted box with a conventional RB box sealing system in the Pannevis RB-SV extending the range of application to all possible industries that use vacuum belt filter technology.
In the Pannevis RB-SV design the vacuum box is once again placed under the rubber belt, but it is still located on the outer edge of the belt. It therefore requires the sealing of the vacuum box on only one surface as with conventional vacuum box designs. For the widest filters in the range, a vacuum box can be located on each side of the filter to maximize hydraulic flow and ensure optimal performance.
Larox filter designs target maximum availability, minimum operational cost and optimum process results for its customers. These objectives are evident in the RB-SV design and totally differentiate it from conventional designs with the centrally located vacuum boxes.
