The Ideal Filtration Process for Catalyst Recovery

 

While catalysts are vital to various processes, it is equally critical to recover them. When you recover them, the cost of production reduces, which has a cascading effect on your entire pricing and profitability. When you recover catalysts, you also purify the process fluid. Spillage while transporting the catalyst-laden fluid can be hazardous, so the best solution is to treat them within the premises. And if you utilize heterogeneous catalysts, filtration is the way to recover your catalysts.

What is expected of a filtration system for catalyst recovery?

  1. They should be highly efficient. Precise filtration would lead to the higher recovery of catalysts and a more reliable purification of the fluids.
  2. In-situ cleaning should be possible. The changeover of elements or disassembling for cleaning leads to longer downtime and consumption of manhours.
  3. The temperature of the fluids can be high or the chemistry might be harmful to humans. So the systems should be designed in such a way that the operator has least or no exposure to the process fluids.
  4. The filter elements should be highly resistant to high temperatures and extremely reactive fluids. They should also possess excellent mechanical strength to withstand variations in pressure.
  5. The leakages and spillages can be harmful and costly, so the system has to be leak proof.

The Most Efficient Filters for Catalyst Filtration

A host of solutions can be offered for catalyst filtration, but we highly recommend using sintered porous metal tubes for catalyst recovery. These tubes, housed in filter housings, offer precise filtration which results in higher recovery. You can either opt for automatic backwash system, or you can have the provision of in-situ cleaning. The assembly operates for a long duration before it needs any maintenance; hence the downtime and the consumption of man hours is very low. There are absolutely zero chances of any kind of leakage or spillage. So, these systems are: precise, safe, cost-effective, and easy to maintain.

Characteristics of Our Porous Sintered Filter Elements

While the systems are designed and produced in our manufacturing facility in India, the sintered porous elements are sourced from Mott Corporation which has set a benchmark in the filtration industry with its quality of sintered porous filter elements. Here are their characteristics:

  1. Produced from an array of high-quality metals and alloys.
  2. Very high filtration efficiency.
  3. Resistant to high temperatures.
  4. Based on their material of construction, many elements are compatible with harsh fluids.
  5. Easily cleanable with in-situ cleaning.
  6. Available in both open-end and closed-end configurations.
