Filter Revamping in Coal Industry
Coal producer placed order for revamp of a 3rd disc filter
BOKELA is proud to announce the award of the third order from a satisfied customer for the retrofit of a disc filter. The coal producer operates several disc filters (196 m² filter area each) from another OEM for fine coal dewatering.
We received the first order to optimize one of these disc filters in 2014, the second order followed in 2019. The aim of these successful two filter revamping projects was to increase the filter performance to improve filter operation and availability, and at the same time to reduce operating costs and maintenance. All targets have been achieved. The filter performance has been increasd by 70% from 35 t/h to 60 t/h per filter in terms of dry solids throughput.
Now the customer decided to take advantage of BOKELA’s filter revamping skills for retrofitting of a third disc filter.
