The BoVac Drum filter is operated for filtration, washing and dewatering of an organic pharma intermediate. The filter is encapsulated and equipped with 3 adjustable wash bars with full cone spray nozzles and with a CIP system.

The filter is operated in batch mode and works fully automatically. Startup and shutdown processes, filter operation and cleaning (CIP) are automated. The cake discharge is monitored with the help of an installed camera. With a time of less than 0.5 hours per week, the filter needs almost no maintenance. The exchangeable filter cells allow easy cleaning and quick re-clothing.
