Taking efficiency to a whole new level Scanacon’s CycloSafu remains the worlds only filtration technology that combines two proven filtration techniques for acid-solids separation from acid finishing processes.
Combining the efficiency and high solids removal capacity of our proven ASRA technology with the high flow design of the CycloSafu, Scanacon has taken acid-solids separation to a new level of efficiency, reducing acid losses from the previous generation by greater than 90% with AsraSafu !
How does it operate ?
AsraSafu replaces the CycloSafu hydrocyclones and sludge tank with a single stand Asra removing large particles from the feed acid and returning it to the system’s recirculation tank. The large particles form a dense filter-cake on the surface of the ASRA membrane that increases the removal efficiency of smaller particles, improving overall filtration quality and solids removal.
Cleaning of the ASRA is automatic and key to its efficiency efficiency. Prior to water cleaning, air is used initially to remove residual acid from the filter-cake. Expanding the membrane breaks the filter-cake free from the surface, where the solids may be disposed of in either a dry or slurry form, depending upon customer requirements.
Choose Basic or Optional Functionality
The single stand ASRA is a compact version of Scanacon’s proven full scale ASRA system used for solids control by stainless and speciality alloy producers throughout the world today.
Available “Sludge Booster” functionality as an option utilizes the extra solids removal capacity of the single stand ASRA on the process tanks directly, thereby reducing the downtime, labour and safety liabilities associated with manual cleaning and disposal accumulated solids.
