Weeks after acquiring Swedish filtration technology company, NovaTek AB, Flowrox Oy has launched its Flowrox Filter Press and Flowrox Ceramic Disc Filter.
These products significantly strengthen the Flowrox product range in the solid/liquid separation market, the company said.
When the company announced the addition of NovaTek earlier this month, Simo Manninen, Vice President of Marketing at Flowrox, said: “Flowrox aims to grow not only its existing core, valves and pumps business, but also selected strategic growth areas. With the acquisition of NovaTek, we are seeking to grow in the solid/liquid separation.”
NovaTek filters are used in metallurgical industries to filter cadmium, cobalt, chlorine, copper and selenium. They can also be used for several other applications, such as polishing of pickling acids in the steel industry, pigment separation and washing, and in power plants in the separation of gypsum.
Flowrox said the Filter Press was developed with filter operators and is well appreciated, especially among leading global metal production companies. It “presents fully automatic operation, high quality, superb performance and high availability”.
The Flowrox Ceramic Disc Filter (pictured) requires low investment and delivers clear filtrate with dry cake, according to the company. “Compared to conventional vacuum filters, it consumes approximately 90% less energy.” The filter operates continuously with high capacity and is a cost-efficient solution for many concentrator and tailings processes, the company said.
Flowrox, up until recently a manufacturer of industrial valves and pumps, aims to deliver complete filtration solutions to maximise production, reduce downtime and lower total costs.
A team of experienced Flowrox professionals provide the whole package of services starting with detailed analysis of process, filtration testing, equipment selection and sizing according to the test results and practical experience, Flowrox says, with the aim to optimise filtration performance.
