Batch2Conti – Continuous filtration of a pharmaceutical product with BOKELA drum filter
The filtration of a pharmaceutical product will in future be carried out on a BOKELA vacuum drum filter The BoVac Drum Filter allows the customer to change the production of the pharmaceutical product from batch operation to continuous operation, as intended for a long time.. The product is filtered on a BoVac Drum M9 (9 m² filter area), washed and demoistured.
The particular challenge of this task is the consequence of the special properties of the product: the filter cake can only be processed in a specific, narrow window of process and product parameters.. BOKELA has worked with the customer in an intensive, almost two-year development phase to design the process so that a continuous filtration and washing of the product is possible.
For this, the German producer has ordered a BoVac Drum M9 filter.
