The Putsch® press filter systems are part of the standard equipment used for decades by the sugar and sweetener industries.
Over 1,000 press filters have been successfully installed and commissioned throughout the world. Putsch® products are known worldwide in filtration and environmental technology industries, and in all plants dedicated to the production of glass and sugar, thanks to their quality and reliability.
The high degree of diversification achieved by Putsch® is the result of constant innovation.
Manufacture of Pigments and Dyes
Many applications in this industry require a reliable service 24/7. A corrosive environment, high temperatures and an often unstable atmosphere require a suitable design. The Putsch® filtration systems were created to meet these requirements. Conventional systems such as drum filters and centrifuges have been satisfactorily replaced by press filters.
- Titanium dioxide (TiO2) (finish/desalination and waste/neutralization)
- Caustic soda
Food and Agriculture Industry
Putsch® press filters and juice purification systems are standard applications for the sugar industry. A high performance design and a high level of automation make these filters the ideal choice for many applications in this market.
- Wine and juices
- Edible oils
- “Green Energies” (Bioethanol)
- Animal waste
- Sugar and sweetening processes
Chemical and Petrochemical Industry
Putsch® press filter systems offer extensive capabilities with fully automated process for the industry. Corrosion and abrasion-resistant materials and a solid design for 24/7 operation make these filtration systems the ideal choice for this market.
- Calcium carbonate (CaCO3)
- Barium sulphide (fluid finish)
- Silicates (product and waste)
- Polymers (fibres)
- Brine solution (recovery cooling)
Mining and Minerals
The demand for large capacity press filters for harsh environments makes Putsch® press filter systems, with their innovative cake unloading system, an economical option for this industry.
- Mineral concentrate
- Flotation sludge
- Clay (kaolin, bentonite, ceramics)
Recycling and Environment
For this type of industry, Putsch® offers various press filter designs, in addition to assistance in development in our test laboratory.
- Stone processing(cutting, gravel polishing and washing applications)
- Plastic fibres(carpet recycling)
- Power plants (flue gas desulphurization, REA)
- Industrial waste
- Chemical waste
Pharmaceutical Industry and Biotechnology
The demand for carefully controlled processes and clean environments can be met with Putsch® press filter systems. Our software and enclosures meet this challenge.
- Blood plasma
Pulp and Paper
Although centrifuges are the preferred option as dehydration equipment in this industry, press filter systems have achieved better results with regard to the rate of capture of solids, final moisture content and salt removal (cake washing).
- Green liquor (soda recovery)
- Coating waste treatment
