Voith BaglessPlus filter discs now for use in GL&V Celleco CDI 5.0 disc filters
Voith, Heidenheim, Germany, says its BaglessPlus filterdiscs now guarantee that GL&V Celleco CDI 5.0 disc filters will also enjoy the lowest level of filtrate values duringa lifetime of over 15 years.
The BaglessPlus discs operate without filter bags and,because the bags often tear during operation, the Voithtechnology reduces the number of unscheduled downtime.Damaged bags also cause reduced dewatering efficiency,corresponding fiber losses and contaminationof the filtrate. BaglessPlus discs, on the otherhand, guarantee a consistently high quality offiltrate over the entire lifetime so that it can beused in other sections of the paper machine, reducing the fresh water requirement for the entire paper mill. The BaglessPlus product rangealso features a lifetime of 15 years and more.
In December 2018, the first GL&V CellecoCDI 5.0 disc filter in Scandinavia was completely converted to BaglessPlus filter discs andthe filtrate values are now at their lowest level,says Voith.
The simple installation of the BaglessPlusdiscs features bottom flanges with side lugs andthey are just as rigid as those previously usedby the competitor.
US customers have also ordered the BaglessPlus technology for their GL&V Celleco CDI 5.0disc filters and these units are set to be commissioned soon.
