The tilting pan filter has been part of our product range for over 50 years and there are over 300 tilting pan filters installed worldwide. This filter is used primarily in the manufacturing of phosphoric acid from phosphate rock, and specifically in the dihydrate, hemihydrate, and the combined hemihydrate and dihydrate processes.
Large filter sizes, with filter areas in excess of 200 square meters, eliminate the need for multiple smaller filters. The filter offers the facility to discharge the solids as a wet cake or dry cake, and provides exceptional wash efficiencies, in addition to maximum process control. In addition to phosphoric applications, the tilting pan filter has been used in metallurgical applications, such as copper ore, and in specialized applications, such as activated carbon.
