Filtration - Cutting costs for acid neutralization-Image

The MaxFlo® team helps customers solve some of the most challenging filtration problems.

A large chemical company had low density, high moisture filter cakes from an acid neutralization project. Filter cake production was extremely high, and landfill costs were exceeding budget. Changing to MaxFlo® reduced filter cake density 22%, landfill costs fell 40% and the project moved ahead at 16% below budget.

The MaxFlo® family of filter aid products is based on rice hull ash (RHA), an amorphous silica byproduct of burning rice hulls for energy generation. That is just the beginning of the story.

Not only are MaxFlo® products created from a renewable resource, they are engineered through the precise control of combustion and proprietary processes to yield a range of high performance properties that are as beneficial as they are environmentally sound.

These include higher flow rates at lower pressures, lower process energy requirements, greater product purity, and reduced health risks for workers when compared to other filter aids.

The staff at MaxFlo® Filtration applies extensive filtration knowledge and experience, R & D technologies, expertise and laboratory services to assist customers in resolving specific filtration requirements.
