DEWATERING TEST KITS
Perfect for Water Quality Testing
Like the pressure filtration stage, the use of filter media is used to retain the solids of a known size. Rather than use pressure to force the liquid through the cake, a vacuum is applied at approximately 20 inches of mercury and is used to pull the liquid through the cake. Vacuum is applied at varying times and air flow. The filtration rate is trended with time.
The Vacuum Filtration Test Kit is equipped with two types of test leaves, one for bottom feed (like drum or disk filter) and top feed like a horizontal belt filter. A hard-shell case is portable equipped with rollers for ease of mobility.
