For concentrating a fine-particulate special PCC product a BoCross Dynamic Filter with 6 m² filtration area is operated.

The calcium carbonate suspension is fed to the BoCross Dynamic Filter directly after precipitation with a feed concentration of 13 wt.- % (DS-content). In this state the feed suspension has a high viscosity and has to be thickened to an end concentration as high as possible.

The BoCross Dynamic Filter achieves an end concentration of  DS = 40 - 43 wt.- %.  This concentration is higher than the solids content of a filter cake with DS = 37 wt.- %, which is formed by pressure filtration at a pressure difference of Δp = 6 bar.

The solids discharged from the BoCross Dynamic Filter completely satisfy the process targets in terms of

  • high end concentration
  • no air intake
  • pastous consistency with spreadable flow behavior.
