Hi-Bar Standard Filter

The BOKELA HiBar Filters are available with disc filters of up to 168 m2 filtration area and drum filters of up to 40 m2.


Process Design

The BOKELA HiBar Filters consist of proven and robust components like disc or drum filters that are installed in a pressure vessel, that is filled with compressed air during filter operation. The slurry is pumped to the filter trough and separated on the filter (disc or drum). Whereas the filtrate is drained through the control valve and goes to the filtrate receiver(s), the filter cake is discharged in a discharge chute and leaves the pressure vessel passing through a sluice. This reliable and robust system enables pressures up to 7 bar, abs in the vessel so that filtration pressure differences of up to 6 bar are realized.


HiBar Steam Pressure Filtration

The patented BOKELA HiBar Steam Pressure Filtration is a hybride process combining a mechanical and a thermical drying process.

The advantages are:

  • extremely low residual moistures
  • very efficient cake washing
  • extraction of soluble elements from the cake
  • reduction or even avoiding of the cracks in the cake
