Thermal cake drying is the newest development to expand our product line of filter plates. During thermal cake drying, the filter cake is dewatered and dried in the filter press. A dry substance content of over 90% can be achieved with the help of thermal cake drying (TCD).
Thus, a subsequential drying process of the filter cake in a separate system can be omitted. Low investment costs compared to the cost savings of energy and dewatering by using the TCD technology.
ADVANTAGES OF THERMAL CAKE DRYING
Mechanical dewatering and thermal drying of the filter cake in a press Savings in downstream drying processes/drying systems Very high dry contents (TS) possible Reduced dewatering costs Low investment costs, existing filter press can be used Reduced energy consumption
