Filtration Solutions for Aggregates, Asphalt, Cement Production

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Did you know that the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group is a provider of both wet and dry filtration equipment and service solutions to the aggregates and allied-industries including asphalt and cement production?

On the liquid filtration side, we are often referred to as the “pressure filtration experts” and Micronics offers a range of filter plate configurations that we can custom-design to dewater very fine solids such as in an aggregate plant’s wash plant effluent. These include filter presses with:

  • Recessed filter plates
  • Membrane squeeze (diaphragm) filter plates
  • “Mixed Pack” filter plates consisting of membrane and recessed plates

You can read more about the advantages of membrane and mixed pack filter plates here in this recent blog post.

Chemours Filter Press

Micronics offers a range of filter presses well-suited to the rugged operating conditions in aggregates and allied industries. Pictured here is a robust Dual Overhead Beam Filter Press with fast-action automatic plate shifters and “mixed pack membrane” filter plates.

Micronics offers both overhead beam and sidebar filter press styles, depending upon considerations such as access required to the filter cloths for change-out, and whether an automatic cloth washing system will be implemented.

Minimizing fines going into settling ponds as well as reducing the costs of transporting filter cake are topics that comes up frequently with our aggregates and mining clients. Achieving drier filter cake solids is a key tool for reducing transportation and disposal costs. We explored the topic of reducing operating costs with drier cakes in this recent blog post.

Every plant has different needs around targeted cake moisture and clay content in the slurry is a key consideration in terms of selecting cake thickness and optimizing cycle time.

Micronics works onsite with our customers to determine the best filter press, filter plate, filter cloth combination to ensuring the most efficient, effective dewatering operation to meet your company’s objectives. At Micronics, you will find a dedicated and knowledgeable team of engineered filtration professionals that you can trust to design the reliable, high-quality, cost-effective solutions that meet your goals.
