Galen Garretson, one of our field service personnel, recently shared a story about a solution that resulted in a reduction in hauling costs for a food industry client. On a recent field visit to this customer in the Midwest, it became readily apparent during our site inspection that their 1200mm filter press’ drip trays were damaged beyond repair. The existing drip tray doors were allowing wicking liquids to contaminate the dry filter cake in the catch bin below the filter press. We would estimate that this was to the tune of ~40-50 gallons of liquid per cycle.
Unfortunately, since the press was not a Micronics-manufactured press, detailed information needed to be collected in order to successfully fit new drip trays.
Below we share details of our successful drip tray retrofit, one of the many Retrofit Solutions from the Micronics Engineered Filtration Group.
