An agitated nutsche filter is a type of filtration equipment used in various industries, such as chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing. It works by separating solid particles from a liquid mixture using a porous filter medium, which allows the liquid to pass through while retaining the solid particles. The agitated nutsche filter has an additional mechanism of agitation, which helps to improve the filtration efficiency and reduce the filtration time.
The filter is designed as a closed vessel with a perforated plate at the bottom and a filter cloth or screen placed on top of it. The mixture is introduced into the vessel through an inlet, and the liquid passes through the filter medium while the solid particles are retained. The agitation mechanism involves a stirrer that rotates at a specific speed and direction, causing the mixture to move and enhancing the filtration process.
The agitated nutsche filter operates in two stages, namely the filtration stage and the washing stage.
Overall, the agitated nutsche filter is an efficient and effective filtration equipment that is widely used in various industries. Its agitation mechanism helps to improve filtration efficiency and reduce filtration time, making it an ideal choice for large-scale production.
