Micro- and Nano-Scale Particles

Does your filter manage 0,1 µm?

There is a reason why our BOKELA experts understand themselves as filtration people. The challenges of filter technology are the spice in our daily work, and as pioneers, we like to focus on the fringes of what is possible, pushing boundaries further.

Hard to filter products, the separation of very fine particles, or the filtration of small quantities – in continuous operation as well – are not a hurdle to BoCross filters, but their showcase projects. Thickening of finest mineral particles and pigments such as titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, kaolin, and barium sulfate, the washing of suspensions, or the filtering of biological extracts, pharmaceutical precursors, API, or nano cellulose – no matter what requirements and standards you have to meet, the BoCross filter masters even difficult challenges and sophisticated products.

The dynamic crossflow principle provides micro, ultra, and nano filtration in unique quality. Less product loss due to clean separation and optimized costs thanks to an efficient process – even when facing hard to filter, complex products and a continuous solids separation – ultimately mean that BOKELA customers can concentrate on the more important aspects of their work.

BoCross MicroScreen filter

Classification Under Difficult Process Conditions.

Dynamic sieve filtration allows the separation of coarse or fine grain fractions. Highly viscous and concentrated suspensions can be filtered in a closed apparatus with high throughput and sharp separation cut.

BoCross Dynamic filter

High Final Concentration and Clear Filtrate.

The range of services of the BoCross Dynamic filter allows micro filtration and ultra filtration of even nanoscale suspensions. The shear gap principle ensures almost ideal physical conditions for the separation process and thus, for the high concentration of suspensions.

Crossflow Filtration. For Difficult Suspensions

Macro, micro, or nano.

BoCross Dynamic and BoCross MicroScreen are dynamic crossflow filters for micro, ultra, dia or sieve filtration. With the BoCross filter series, suspensions with high concentrations or viscosities can be thickened, washed, cleared or classified.

Concentrating and Washing of Calcium Carbonate

Special PCC Product

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

Concentrating and Washing of a Pharmaceutical Iron Hydroxide

A pharmaceutical suspension is synthesized so that a considerable amount of salt is formed during neutralization. This microfine suspension must be cleansed (washed out) of salt and further concentrated.

Concentrating and Washing of Titanium

The BoCross Dynamic filter is used for concentrating and washing of a modified and very fine titanium dioxide which has to be further processed.

Dynamic Sieve Filtration of a High Viscous Polymeric Suspension

From a high valuable polymer dispersion coarse particles (x > 20 µm) have to be separated completely. The difference in density of the particles compared to the fluid is negligible.

Recovery of Catalysts by Dynamic Precoat Filtration

In a BDO production plant (butanediol process) 24 BoCross MicroScreen filter units of 10 m² each are applied for recovery of catalyst by dynamic precoat filtration.
