Sugar Processing Filtration System
WATERGUARDph® automatic and self-cleaning liquid filters provide an excellent and innovative solution to filtration and screening issues in the sugar industry. The liquid filters efficiently reduce the time in cleaning the evaporators, heat exchangers, pipes, screens and vessels.
WATERGUARDph® liquid filters are basically maintenance free. They can effectively filter syrup or juice through a powerful quadruple-layered stainless steel mesh screen. Any form of liquids up to 76º Bx is filtered at a maximum pressure of 150 psi (15 bar) and at a temperature of over 200ºF without plugging the screen. Single filters can practically handle up to 200 gpm (50m3/h) depending on the suspended solids content. Filters are installed fully in parallel function at greater flow rates – in fact, in an unlimited flow rates. Filtration procedure ranges from 10µ to 400µ.
WATERGUARDph®, a unique and cutting-edge screen cleaning technology can save up to 95% of rinse water compared to previous run models. The manufacturer of WATERGUARDph® filters, Automatic Filters, Inc. offers a great range of competitively priced stainless steel filters that have a rate of 150 psi (10 bar) and 225ºF (110ºC).
Plate evaporators are susceptible to obstruction by solid particles or the bagasse fibers due to the tiny gaps. Therefore, it is necessary to have an in-line strainers to remove these solid particles. Juice distributors on falling film evaporators are also vulnerable to obstruction with solid particles. The self-cleaning procedure can last for 10 seconds without even interrupting the main flow. It does not need any external water source for flushing the screen. The rinse liquid is shipped back to the clarifier, to the beginning of the process, to a filter press, or to a membrane. The filtrate or permeate can be sent back to the clarifier or forward downstream, depending on the system requirements.
There are still many other alternative applications for the WATERGUARDph® filter in the sugar mill such as:
- Boiler feed water
- Cooling tower water
- Spray nozzle protection
- Irrigation and more!
The WATERGUARDph® filter can change the multiple labor-intensive bag filters used as check-filters in many applications like liquor or molasses filtration.
In short, WATERGUARDph® filters can save the money that is spent every day for labor in cleaning and replacing the screens, bags, and cartridges.
