Self-Cleaning Filters (Sibomat)

The Putsch® SIBOMAT filter, due to its total stainless steel construction, is specially designed for heavy-duty applications in sugar processing, unlike common filters. This filter has automatic cleaning and is equipped with a patented cleaning system based on high pressure sprays at 120 bars (1,740psi), which effectively removes scale. The SIBOMAT can be used in filtering tasks of up to 25µm (400 mesh). 

Applications of the SIBOMAT:

In sugar cane factories and refineries:

  • Pre-filtration of molten syrup, prior to clarification.
  • Pre-filtration before ultra-filtration.
  • Filtration of spilt clarified water.
  • Filtration after bleaching.
  • Filtration of diluted syrup before or between evaporators.
  • Filtration of the resulting centrifuged liquid.
  • As a trap or safety filter.
  • Filtration of the water from the refining process.

In beet sugar factories:

  • Filtration of concentrated syrup.
  • Filtration of clarified liquid or standard liquor.
  • Filtration of diluted syrup before or between evaporators.
  • Filtration of the resulting centrifuged liquid.
  • Filtration of the water processed in the factory.

The main components of this type of filter are the filter vessel with filter basket and built-in fine sieve, the high pressure cleaning system with high pressure pump, the control cabinet, the automatic shut-off valves and the complete piping installation.
