Depth Filter Module Depth Filter Retrieves Catalysts Ions
Begerow has recently issued the BecoPad a new depth filter medium, that can be used for example to retrieve valuable catalysts from process media.
Expensive metallic catalyst like palladium, rhodium, and platinum are can thereby be bonded to a carrier material like activated carbon and be returned for reconditioning and future use. According to Begerow, the separated catalysts, adhering to the activated carbon, can be thickened to a filter cake, thanks to the BecoPads high bursting strength, making the handling of residues considerably easy. Even exhausted catalysts can be regained after ashing, as the filter has only a minimum ash content. The mineral free BecoPad filter material and its strong reduction in extractable ions secures a very pure end product, Begerow says. The filter medium also provides a very high chemical and mechanical resistance when filtering aggressive solutions.
