HYPOX® Filter is a continuous filter composed by two fixed filter housings connected by diverter valves and equipped for the cleaning in situ.
The HYPOX® process guarantees the polymer removal, not only from the filter housing and filter candles, but also from ducts among housings and diverters, without the need to remove the bundle dirty of polymer from the filter housing.
Its characteristics are:
filtering area up to 102 m²
two fixed filter housings connected by slide diverter valves
independent heating system for each filter housing
direct and integral jacketing system (the jacket covers 100% of the filter housing and of the connection ducts)
the jacket is applied directly on the external surface of the filter housing
cleaning in situ by means of the HYPOX® process
Its advantages are:
no contamination of the final product, thanks to the perfect cleaning of the candles, filter housings, polymer ducts and diverter channlels
no manual handling of hot filter housings caked with polymer
substitution and starting of the cleaning cycle carried out by one single operator. The cleaning cycle is fully automatic.
minimization of the negative effects of the residence time on the polymer thanks to an independent heating system with direct jacketing
safe and efficacious cleaning of the filter elements and longer life
