Rotary Drum Vacuum Filter

The basic principle of the rotary drum vacuum filter has been around for over 100 years and is one of the oldest types of filters used for solid and liquid separation. The rotary drum vacuum filter is used for a number of different applications such as the filtration of bulk or fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments, foods, bulk minerals, sludge dewatering, wastewater treatment, and biofuels. The list is not exhaustive. The rotary drum vacuum filter is a versatile filter that is reliable, continuous and requires minimal operator effort/attention. It is also available in wide range of sizes and choices from lab and pilot scale to full production scale.
