Powtech 2023 Focus on Laboratory and Pilot Tests
BHS-Sonthofen has plans to showcase a new laboratory indexing filter, a compact version of the proven indexing belt filter along with the horizontal dryer of type HTC-T 140, which is used in many different production processes in the chemical industry.
BHS-Sonthofen ensures successful project execution with individual test concepts tailored to its customers particularly from the chemical industry. At this year's Powtech, the machine and plant manufacturer is therefore placing a special focus on laboratory and pilot trials. The exhibits at booth 213 in hall 4A include a new laboratory belt filter and a type HTC-T horizontal dryer.
The company relies on a combination of high process engineering expertise, a broad technology portfolio and personal support to assist its customers throughout the entire project cycle.
To fully utilize all efficiency potentials, the firm approaches each project with an in-depth analysis of the processes. Together with the customer, the company develops an individual test concept in a series of detailed discussions. Laboratory and pilot scale trials allow the firm to optimize the design of the equipment and create a flow chart of the overall process. Based on this, it then develops a tailor-made offer for the customer, shares the company.
The exhibits at the BHS booth at Powtech will show two different process steps in the laboratory and in the test center. The firm will present a new laboratory indexing filter, a compact version of the proven indexing belt filter. This continuously operating vacuum filter, which separates solids from suspensions safely and gently, is used in a wide range of treatment processes. Also, on display will be the horizontal dryer of type HTC-T 140, which is used in many different production processes in the chemical industry. The continuous and efficient mixing of the drying product enables optimum utilization of the heated heat exchange surface and uniform product quality – a unique feature of this machine, mentions the company.
The process parameters of laboratory and production machine are essentially identical. This allows reliable scaling up to the production machine and a seamless transition to large-scale production in the chemical or food industry. Successful commissioning requires interdisciplinary cooperation between project management, process engineering and control engineering. During installation and commissioning, customers can rely on individual support and technical expertise from BHS, adds the firm. But support goes beyond commissioning. The company is also available to its customers with comprehensive services at any time after project completion.
