Alar Engineering Introduces the Auto-Vac Rotary Vacuum Filter


The Auto-Vac filter will remove virtually all suspended solids from liquid slurries. It is self-cleaning with every revolution; never blinds. With the aid of a diatomaceous earth filter media, solid particles as small as 0.5 micron are removed from the liquid being filtered. The solids are continuously removed from the surface of the filter media by a Stellite Knife blade and then deposited into a receptacle for easy disposal. Liquid typically can be safely discharged into the sewer system, or can be recycled back to plant operation. Alar's Auto-Vac filter dewaters sludges, greatly reducing hauling costs from air flotation units, clarifiers, wet scrubbers, flocculators, chemical precipitation, process liquors, paint spray booths, cutting tables and many more.

Alar will have a working model of the Alar Auto-Vac on display at the IMTS Trade Show, September 4-11, 2002, Exhibit Booth #D-4752. Alar Engineering is a family owned and operated company.
