Continuous Band Filtration (CBF)
The Gala Continuous Band Filtration (CBF) performs process water filtration. It is designed as a retrofit for the pellet production line where fines are regularly created on some products and operator attendance would normally be required to clean the IS drawer in the production frequently. After installation of the CBF, the operator does not have to monitor the underwater pelletizing system anymore. The advance of the filter media is continuous and does not need any activation in order to catch fines larger than 150 µm. Process water contamination is eliminated in most cases. The fines are continuously separated from the process water and collected in a mud cart.
