Most sulphur is used for the production of sulfuric acid (H2SO4). Before elemental sulphur can be fed to the contact process, typically with a vanadium catalyst, it needs to be purified. If sulphur is filtered in a molten sulphur process the maintenance interval of the sulphur burners, catalyst beds, and pipe reactors is significantly improved. This results in considerably lower maintenance costs.
A molten sulphur filter system typically consists of a two stage filtration system. This system consists of a horizontal pressure leaf filter followed by a polishing/safety cartridge filter.
Filtration Group has developed Horizontal Pressure Leaf - Retractable Bundle and Retractable Shell type filters for sulphur filtration. Key characteristics of these filter models are a big filtration surface, easy to clean filter plates, and a heating jacket in order to maintain the high process temperature.An additional cartridge filter is placed downstream of the horizontal pressure leaf filter.
Sulphur filters can be found in the following industries:
•Sulphuric and phosphoric acid producers.
•Carbon disulfide (CS2) producers.
Key advantages of Filtration Group's sulphur filtration:
•Undisputed market leader with by far the largest installed base worldwide.
•Several other players have copied our design, some of which with a reasonable result, but none with a better one.
•Mechanical finish of the highest standard, leading to longevity of the filters.
•Impact resistant and tightly assembled 5-ply filter plates with superior release properties.
•Lower maintenance costs resulting from proprietary engineering, not just for your filters but also for the downstream protected burner nozzles.
•Experience-based cycle algorithms to optimize your total process performance.
•Extensive process support for commissioning and local design requirements.
•Advanced operator training and pragmatic testing guidance.
•Fully fledged quality assurance system and certification/compliance track record.
•And last but not least close customer interaction, whenever you need it, wherever you are.
