Decanter System for muddy juice treatment

The obsolete plate / frame type filter process for muddy juice filtration were eventually replaced by rotary vacuum filter where bagacillo is essentially required to be added to work as a filtering media and which long stayed in the sugar industry almost for last sixty years!, inspite of various associated problems; perhaps for the reason of simplicity and more importantly for the reason that better alternative technology was not readily available.
The solid bowl decanter technology has gained wide application for solid-liquid separation in other industries like oil, dairy, chemical, water and sewage treatment etc. and is in existence for more than a century all over the world.
The decanter is now a well proven technology for sugar industry which has great potential.
