Axium Process has developed a universal stainless steel filter housing which can be used with three distinct filter screens, each of which has specialist capabilities designed for applications across the pharmaceutical, food, beverage, dairy, confectionery and chemical industries.
The universal housing is fixed in-place, but the element can be rapidly switched to change filtration levels or install another type of screen. The three screen options include Axium’s wedge-wire filter screen, a sintered mesh screen, and a basic perforated filter screen. The range covers the separation of particulates, fibres, flakes and glass shard protection, and offers filtration levels between 5µm and 6,000µm.
Axium’s wedge wire-screen is used for powder dispersing applications and where product consistency and smoothness are essential, enabling solids and particles such to be separated, while simultaneously breaking down and dispersing agglomerates.
The sintered mesh screen is used in mains water, pharmaceutical, food and beverage applications to remove suspended solids, micro-flakes, hair and fibres. The company’s perforated tube screen is designed for general purpose filtration at high or low temperatures, separating larger particles from liquid streams.
