Project: Hydraulic Wash Column (HWC) (klik hier voor de flyer)
Duration: 2016 to present
By means of a washing column behind a smeltkristallisator impurities are removed by a countercurrent wash from the product stream. The technology produces a product purity of up to 99.9 percent and can be used for the purification of both solid and liquid products. A disadvantage of most of the purification techniques is that they consume a lot of energy. The HWC provides energy savings of 20 to 90 percent. Furthermore, the HWC technology highly scalable and can be applied to both small and large scale.
