Solid Liquid Filtration Consultants
Filtration Equipment, Agitators and Blenders
Solid Liquid Filtration Consultants, commonly known as SLFC, specialises in the supply of a full range of industrial solid / liquid / hot gas separation and mixing equipment used in a wide range of applications in the chemical, fine chemicals, edible oil, mineral oil, pharmaceutical, brewing, mining and food industries.
SLFC collaborates with CPE Mixing Technologies Africa (CPE), a supplier of vacuum filtration equipment and agitators. Through its principal in Australia, CPE is leading the way for the design of its RFT4 agitators and uniquely designed vacuum filter equipment.
Each CPE agitator is custom designed to specifically meet the process requirements of a plant. Whether the application is blending, solids suspension, gas dispersion or a combination, CPE can design a cost-effective agitator to suit the customer’s needs.
CPE has specialist expertise in agitator applications in vessels from 200 litre up to 300m³ with agitator diameters of 150mm up to 7m and shaft lengths of 1m to over 15m.
We use proven technology that can be incorporated into your process to improve operation and reduce costs. This applies to both new and retrofit applications.
The RTF4 is a high-efficiency hydrofoil which delivers high volumetric flow rates whilst drawing up to half the power requirements when compared with competitors’ hydrofoils.
The medium-sized agitator assembly incorporates a pedestal design which reduces stress on drives and motors. This design feature, when coupled with the efficiency of the RTF4, delivers financial benefits in reduced power consumption and reduced maintenance cost.
The powder blender is available as a single or dual rotor paddle mixer which provides a homogenous blend regardless of particle size and density and eliminates segregation during mixing. It can also provide the capability to introduce and effectively disperse liquids. Sizes range from 30 litre to 6,000 litre working capacities.
The addition of a high shear accessory provides a facility to quickly and efficiently break up agglomerates or totally disperse difficult additives.
The ability to retrofit existing mixer installations provides a cost-effective method to maximise the efficiency of your mixing operation whilst minimising the cost of an upgrade.
Pressure leaf filters
Solid Liquid Filtration Consultants, in partnership with Mahle Industrial Filtration in Holland, is able to design and locally fabricate a complete range of pressure leaf filters.
We are able to supply manual, semi-automated and fully automated filter presses in partnership with an Italian company, Bilfinger.
We can supply rotary drum vacuum filters with various discharge methods. Vacuum pan filters are well suited for the filtration of free-settling, free-filtering coarse crystalline or fibrous pulp slurries. Travelling belt filters are well suited to applications requiring thorough cake washing (including multi-stage counter-current washing) at high throughputs.
Hot gas filtration
Representing US company MOTT Corporation allows us to fabricate locally under licence the vessels for porous metal solutions in filtration, flow control, sparging and dispersion with the MOTT porous metal technology.
SLFC, representing Amiad, can provide water filtration products and systems as integrated components or as complete filtration solutions. Typical applications are the removal of solids within intake water, cooling water, process water, service water and wastewater.
Working hand in hand with another Italian company, OCM, we are able to offer various belt presses, complete with thickening tables and make up systems for various applications such as the paper and pulp industries, and many others.
Process filter plates
We are able to supply any filter press plate from any type of filter with the assistance of JVK in Germany. JVK is one of the top plate suppliers in the world and is able to design and supply the required plate for almost any application.
In collaboration with National Filter Media in the US we can offer analysis on your product to supply the best suited filter cloth for a wet or dry application, enabling us to upgrade your existing cloth to yield better filtration rates, cake discharge or simply a longer life time.
We supply sight flow glasses / flow indicators, sight glass fittings, and inline strainers. We also offer repair and rescreening of all types of pressure filter leaves (vibration screens, etc.) with different kinds of filter medias applicable to the process.
