The Pannevis RT horizontal vacuum belt filter solution for molecular sieves is suitable for the multi-step counter-current ion exchange process required to produce molecular sieves. Water washes and ion exchange can be carried out on a single machine with up to seven separate stages possible. The filter is known for its wash efficiency, and this is also true in the ion exchange stages.
The Pannevis RT vacuum belt filter is widely used for NaY, 31X, and ZSM-5 type catalysts as well as many others. The fully automatic continuous operation provides a consistent product at all times. Multiple wash steps, in either co- or counter-current configuration, or in a combination of both, make the filter flexible.
