Filtration unit

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 that 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.
