Band Filtration (BF)
The Gala Band Filtration System (BF) for process water filtration is designed for the underwater pellet production line (for example, during direct crystallization) in which there are several color changes throughout the day. The BF can also be used in product-cutting systems that create fines, which results in contamination in the process water system. Nearly no monitoring of the system is required by an operator. The advance of the filter media is automatically activated in order to catch all fines down to 20 µm created before the process water becomes contaminated. In most of cases, the water does not need to be replaced as it stays perfectly clean. The fines are continuously separated from the process water and collected in a mud cart.
