Speaking on the technological advantages that the filters bring, Pankan said, “Our filters are more durable than our competitors. As they last longer than guaranteed, they turn out to be cost effective in the long run.”

The company’s filters are mainly used for solid liquid separation in multiple industries including edible oil, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, paints, etc. For example, the vertical pressure leaf filter is capable of filtering liquids with a solid content of up to 5–7 per cent. Thus, it is commonly used in edible oil, pharma, chemical and food industries.


For filtration of liquids with higher solid content, the company offers the horizontal pressure leaf filter in these industries. “Horizontal and vertical pressure leaf filters stand tall among the rest of the equipment that we manufacture. Our customers in the domestic as well as international market have been 100 per cent satisfied with its quality and efficiency,” he mentioned.

A Wide Portfolio

Moreover, SAP Filter’s tubular centrifuge filter offers high speed separation and the clarification function. It allows continuous separation of two immiscible liquids and also clarifications of small quantities of impurities from liquids. It turns out to be useful for the pharmaceutical, chemical, food and paint industries. It can also be used in gum clarifications and blood fractionation.

Alternatively, SAP produces the candle filter that provides pressure filtration as well as heel filtration in an enclosed and pressure tight housing. This filter is used in the recovery of catalysts such as nickel, platinum, palladium, etc.; removal of activated carbon; charcoal in pharma plants; resin filtration; filtration of hazardous liquids; etc. “With these capabilities, we have served domestic as well as the international market.” informed Pankan.

Market Overview

Having quality products is only one element in the formula of success. Market conditions as well play an important role in it. Speaking on the current unpredictable market conditions, Pankan stated, “Presently, companies are hesitant on making new purchases. They are being careful about their spending and investments. Hence, even though the demand for filters is growing, we have to carefully judge the demand and prepare ourselves for the same in advance.” More importantly, customer satisfaction is vital in order to survive in these conditions, concluded Pankan.
