Metso Outotec introduces new modular filter for battery chemicals sector

Metso Outotec says it is introducing a new modular filter to its Dual Media (DM) filter product family, with the compact Metso Outotec DM1000 polishing filter particularly suitable for removing and recovering organic compounds and solids in small stream feeds in battery chemicals processes.

Thanks to its modular design, the filter is easy to expand also for larger process flows, the company says.

The DM1000 can be used as a traditional electrolyte filter in the extraction processes as well as for feed flow purification before crystallisation in the metal crystallisation processes.

“Since the launch of our first DM filters some years ago, we have delivered almost 50 DM and DM AC filters for hydrometallurgical extraction and crystallisation processes,” Mika Vuorikari, Director of Industrial Filtration at Metso Outotec, says. “We have delivered hundreds of polishing filters to the mining, chemical and hydrometallurgical industries around the world.

“Adding the modular DM1000 filter to our offering caters to the special needs of the rapidly growing battery industry, where sustainable high-quality filtration is needed to ensure increased production capacities and high-quality end products.”

Coming with energy- and water-efficiency benefits, the Metso Outotec DM1000 polishing filter for battery chemicals is part of the company’s Planet Positive offering.
