The new Andritz PrimeFilter D disc filter is designed for thickening and fibre recovery for use with many different pulp types and brings together several key technologies in one unit to improve throughput and reduce costs.

The PrimeFilter D disc filter has household hazardous waste (HHW) technology for advanced feeding and optimal flow conditions within the filter. This allows it to handle higher feed consistencies and higher-freeness pulp, even in the most demanding applications.

It also has CC bagless sectors, which offer operational improvements due to a very homogeneous fibre mat build-up as well as fast mat knock-off. The special design of the sectors eliminates the need for a filter bag and reduces maintenance to almost zero.

The PrimeFilter D also has two-level shaft sealing which is easily accessible and ensures greater reliability and improved levels of filtrate quality.

The company says its new disc filter has already been very well received in the market with orders received from leading producers.
