Catalyst Recovery Filters

Mott’s catalyst recovery filtration system is expertly crafted to capture over 99% of the catalyst, making it ideal for either recycling or reclamation while ensuring superior filtrate quality. The Mott HyPulse® LSI, a leading catalyst recovery filter, can be tailored for various clean-in-place backwashes, from discharging roughly 15 wt.% slurry to around 50 wt.% wet cake. For scenarios with a significant presence of submicron particles, the HyPulse® LSX cross-flow filter ensures less than 50 ppm filtrate quality, eliminating concerns about blinding media with minuscule catalyst particles. In cases involving dense particles like Raney Nickel, the HyPulse® LSM stands out, offering a flexible filtration and backwash operation. This system capitalizes on the natural high-particle density through gravity settling, making it adept at handling high solids loading streams. All these catalyst recovery filtration technologies are tailored to specific process conditions and can endure operating temperatures up to 1700°F, high operating pressures, and even harsh corrosive environments.

What are Catalyst Recovery Filters?

Catalyst recovery filters are specialized filtration systems designed to capture and reclaim catalysts used in various industrial processes. These filters ensure that over 99% of the catalyst is recovered, either for recycling or reclamation, thereby optimizing resource utilization and reducing costs. By employing these filters, industries can achieve excellent filtrate quality, ensuring that the recovered catalysts maintain their efficacy. The use of such filters is essential for sustainable and efficient industrial operations, especially in sectors where catalysts play a pivotal role.

FAQs: Catalyst Recovery Filters

Q: What is the primary purpose of Mott’s liquid filter technologies in catalyst recovery?

A: Mott’s liquid filter technologies are specifically designed for catalyst recovery, capturing over 99% of the catalyst. This ensures either efficient recycling or reclamation while maintaining excellent filtrate quality.
