Rotary Vacuum Drum Filter Basics

Rotary Vacuum Drum Filters process slurry and discharge cake in a continuous process. RVDFs can be used in wastewater treatment, sludge dewatering, chemical manufacturing, the pharmaceutical industry, cosmetics, mineral mining and refining, and the food processing industry. RVDFs are ideal for a slurry with variable cake thickness, moisture content, and stickiness.

Slurry sits in a tank with a partially submerged drum. As the drum rotates into slurry, a vacuum pulls the liquor through the industrial filter media, trapping the solid particles on its surface, forming a cake. As the drum continues to travel through the slurry, the cake thickens.
