Roytec Filter Presses for South African PGM refinery

Roytec has been successful in securing a contract for four Roytec Filter Presses to be installed at a South African PGM refinery.

The contract was won against strong international competition and addresses particular concerns the client had with current Filter Press operation & maintenance.

Roytec’s newly appointed Filtration Specialist, Gary Whitford reports… “Filter Presses have been used for decades in a wide range of applications in metal refineries and many times operators are less than happy with total cost of ownership and unit availability. Roytec’s approach is to investigate the application specific problems experienced and to design these out, for new projects. These particular filter presses will be designed and checked for conformance in conjunction with the client’s engineers, the frames are manufactured locally in 316L stainless steel and the filter plates are specially imported from Europe for this duty”  

Roytec’s range of Filter Presses also includes the “XY” range, manufactured in China to western standards. The Roytec XY filter presses are available up to 800m2 in size with full automation.
