product Recovery (France)
CASE STUDY 11. Product recovery of cobalt and lithium oxides
This installation was designed to enable the customer to quickly change elements between production runs - thereby not only does this save time and money but also maximises operational efficiency during product recovery.
To avoid filtrate 'hang ups' and potentially costly cross-contamination, all internal surfaces are mirror polished and manufactured to pharmaceutical standards.
To make it easier to handle several different process materials, the filter contains four separate cages, each holding 100 elements. By interchanging the easily cleaned cages, the operator can reduce cleaning time and ensure absolute cleanliness throughout product recovery.
