The function of filtration equipment is to filter slurry so as to separate the solid more or less completely from the liquid.
In Nutsche filter force required for separation of filtrate is through gravity and vacuum. It is very useful to collect small amounts of solids from relatively large volumes of liquid
Nutsche filter is a batch type filter and is versatile and flexible in use. It too can be used in conjunction with a wide range of filter media, such as paper, textile filter fabric, needle felt, membrane filter cloth, wire mesh and sintered metal. The filtering plate base is positioned horizontally, which makes washing or further treatment of the filter cake very easy. On request, the nutsche may be equipped with a mixer for continuous or re-suspension of solids.
