This project was a joint venture between Loughborough University, the academic investigator, and ICI, the industrial sponsor. The aim was to develop and validate filter cycle scale-up methodologies, based on laboratory experiments at Loughborough and full-scale plant work at several ICI sites. Two ICI products, which experience processing problems during filtration, were chosen for assessment. They were a catalyst material (predominately iron oxide), processed by Synetix using rotary vacuum filters (RVFs), and titanium dioxide (TiO2) processed by Tioxide using a diaphragm filter press. A number of objectives were originally highlighted: (1) to develop and validate scale-up methodologies for a pressure filter and vacuum filter; (2) to develop models required to provide accurate predictions of filter performance; (3) to produce PC simulations of RVF and diaphragm filter press; (4) to produce reliable filter cycle data for process feeds of interest to ICI.
