Agitated Filter is a closed vessel designed to separate solid and liquid by filtration under pressure or vacuum. The closed operation ensures odorless.

This seals cracks in the cake so that air or gas will not bypass the bed.
Agitated Nutsche filters are used widely in the production processes of pharmaceutical, chemical and laboratory industries, among others. The control system for modern Nutsche Filters is very sophisticated since it activates and deactivates many components as may be seen in the section Operational Sequence. Washing efficiency may be further improved if air or gas are not allowed to enter the cake in a multi-washing system so the wash liquids always displace the solutions in a “piston” like manner.
These tasks are done by paddle or paddle and auger systems: The paddle arms are rotated in the opposite direction for cake smoothing to seal cracks prior to cake drying. The pressure relief valve that is located on the top of the dished head must be checked for emergency functioning. In the washing stage a spray ring or connections on top of the cover introduce the wash liquid over the cake.
Agitated Nutsche Filter
Medium selection cannot be determined on a bench scale leaf test and it is only pilot testing that can establish long term effects such as medium blinding and fluctuations in the feed properties. The image below illustrates a cake nutche discharges in one piece from an Inverting Nutsche Filter that is not discussed in this section.
The swing type locking bolts that attach the head and cylinder on the smaller machines to the filter floor. In the drying stage air or gas purges the cake until the captive moisture is reduced to an asymptotic level and in practical terms the cake is considered to ayitated as dry as possible.
Cake Discharge Once all the stages are completed the cake discharge valve opens operahion the paddle arms on the smaller machines or the auger arms nustche the larger ones are rotated and lowered to convey the dry cake towards the center.
The large diameter caulking gasket of the dished top head cover. They are manufactured as agitated Nutsche filter dryers ANFD’S for the filtration and drying in the same unit of active pharmaceutical ingredients API and chemical compounds. There are two nutschhe of vessels: In this system two separate hydraulic arrangements raise and lower the paddle arms and the auger arms independently depending on the filtration cycle. The Nutsche in its full configuration consists of four major components: Views Read Edit View history.
On smaller filters the head and cylinder are in one part that bolts to the filter floor featuring easy access to the filter medium. Pressure Drying In the drying stage air or gas purges the cake until the captive moisture is reduced to an asymptotic level and in practical terms the cake is considered to gilter as dry as possible. The same procedure also applies to side discharge machines however it should be noted that in this case the cake comes out intermittently and not continuously.
On the larger filters additional support to the plate is given by ribs between the vessel’s floor and the filter plate. Filtration The filter is charged with slurry and pressure is applied to displace the filtrate leaving the cake retained over the filter filger. One of the advantages of the Nutsche Filter is the ability to smoothen the cake’s surface prior operatiln applying spray wash so that the operatoon bed is washed evenly.
A multipurpose agitator is the unique feature of this system. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This is achieved by a special detector that monitors the surface of the cake for moisture and once air or gas start entering the bed a signal is transmitted to close the filtrate valve and reopen it once next washing commences.
The Nutsche Filter is the industrial version of the well known laboratory scale Buchner Funnel except that it is designed to operate under either on vacuum or pressure. The condition of the filter medium, cloth or mesh screen, must be done periodically to ensure that they are not damaged. To take advantage of the drying ability of the Nutsche Filter it is worth considering the option of heating components such as the vessel, filter floor and paddles to enhance drying.
It consists of an oil tank on which a pump is provided for circulating high-pressure oil through a control valve system and to hydraulic cylinders.

Nutsche Filters are available in almost any size with the larger machines for a slurry filling batch of 25 m3 and a cake volume of 10 m3. This page was last edited on 28 Novemberat Cake Washing In the washing stage a spray ring or connections on top of the cover introduce the wash liquid over the cake.
Agitated Nutsche filter ANF is a filtration technique used in applications such as dyepaintand pharmaceutical production  and waste water treatment. The folter are generally designed for an operating pressure of bars but higher pressures may be specified if required.
The filter floor consists of a densely perforated plate sufficiently strong to hold the cake weight and the pressure that is exerted on the cake’s surface. The ends must be cut in an angle to ensure a perfect seal. All these components may be constructed from exotic materials of construction and heated to meet the process requirements.
Present day Nutsche Filters are constructed to perform a multitude of tasks including reaction, filtration, cake washing and thermal drying on a single unit. The selection depends entirely on the characteristics of the solids, the liquid and the appropriate materials of construction.
Therefore, so that the idle time of the filter is kept to a minimum, sufficient holding volume is required for fast charging and emptying of the vessel. The interlock that disables opening the cake discharge valve or opening when the vessel is still under pressure.
Such filters have a filtration area of 15 m2 and are suitable for fast filtering slurries that produce readily 0.
AGITATED NUTSCHE FILTER/DRYER
On the larger filters the cylindrical vessel is a separate part and the dished head cover is bolted on its top. The filter is charged with slurry and pressure is applied to displace the filtrate leaving the cake retained over the filter medium.
The operation of Nutsche Filters requires a complex manipulation of valves and hydraulics so present day installations are always semi or fully automated.
The vessel can be made completely leak-proof for vacuum or pressure service. Hydraulic Cylinder for Reslurry Arms. Vacuum Drying Further reduction in cake moisture may be obtained by slowly rotating and lowering the paddle arms to scrape and delump the cake.
