Crude & Pure Terephthalic Acid
Mott has been a leader in both crude terephthalic acid (CTA) and purified terephthalic acid (PTA), including pure terephthalic acid (PTA), for decades using both HyPulse® LSI and LSM filter technologies. Mott liquid filters are easily configurable to handle multiple wash and purge steps necessary in CTA and PTA processes to ensure product quality. Our filters reduce caustic acid consumption in the CRU, minimize organic loads in wastewater treatment, and can recover up to 2 wt.% solids from CTA, PTA, or pure terephthalic acid (PTA) applications. For applications designed around corrosion metal control, the Mott LSI can act as an intermediate filter, removing precipitated corrosion metals before downstream processing. The average return on investment for a Mott LSI filter in a CTA, PTA, or pure terephthalic acid (PTA) application is only two years.
