Ceramic Disc and Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filters
NUCLEAR INDUSTRIES YANTAI TONCIN is a leading developer of filtration technology in China, and is China’s largest supplier of Ceramic Disc and Horizontal Vacuum Belt Filters. In 2017 Engineering Appliances entered into a sales and service agreement with Nuclear Industries YanTaiToncin located in the Shandong province of China. Over and above being Asia’s largest Belt Filter manufacturer, Toncin deliver on average 200 sets Ceramic Disc Filters per annum.
Toncin’s sister company Heijing Ceramic, manufacture the ceramic disc’s which are the “heart” of the Ceramic Disc Filter operation. Heijing Ceramic have a unique production process which includes:
Toncin Ceramic disc filters are available in sizes from 1 – 150m² and are always fitted with International brand mechanical and electrical components to ensure parts availability.
A recent installation in Ferrochrome has shown the Toncin Filter to produce high vacuum and thicker cakes, with consequent increase in production as well as superior cake discharge moisture content.
Engineering Applyances provide the following services:
The Ceramic Disc Filter is supplied mostly as a complete installation:
The central rotating shaft has discs attached, each containing 12 ceramic sectors. The ceramic sectors are supplied in varying sizes and pore size. The number of discs varies according to the filter area required. The slurry trough has a rake type agitator which prevents coarse solids from settling in the trough
Vacuum is applied at high levels (-0.8 – 0.9kpa) via a distribution valve at the head of the filter, whilst the shaft rotates. Slurry is drawn towards the ceramic disc and by a combination of the vacuum, as well as capillary action, the liquor is drawn into the disc and central shaft, and removed via the distribution valve. The distribution valve consists of a fixed piece and a moving (rotating) piece.
