What Type of Filter Should You Use with Your Nustche Filter?

Many different industries use Nustche filtration as part of their process, including pharmaceutical companies, chemical plants, paint producers, and waste water treatment facilities. The Nustche filtration process can protect the health and safety of workers by providing filtration of materials within an isolated environment that requires minimal operator exposure.

If you are considering using the Nustche filtration system, you’ll need to make sure you have the right tools and materials to perform the procedure correctly. This includes choosing the right type of filter.

Filter Options

A wide variety of materials can act as an appropriate filter medium, including cloth, a single layer metal screen, or a multi-layer sintered metal.

What type of filter should you use in your Nustche filter?

The answer depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • The particle size of the slurry
  • The shape of the slurry
  • The porosity of the cake
  • The compressibility of the cake

Do you need incredibly fine filtering? Then a cloth filter might be the most appropriate option. Do you need to allow solids to get through? A single layer metal screen may be the more appropriate choice.

Finding the Right Filter

Once you’ve settled on the appropriate filter medium for your Nustche Filter, you’ll still have to determine the exact specs you need. How big should the filter be? What type of cloth should you use? How big should the openings be in a single layer metal screen or multi-layer sintered metal? What type of metal will work best for the operation you have in mind?

If this is your first time using the Nustche Filter, you may need to perform some tests to determine the absolute best filter for your needs. It also can’t hurt to ask other industry experts who are not directly competing with your business.
