Agitated Nutsche Filter Dryer

Agitated Nutsche Filter/ Dryer (ANFD) technology is particularly suited to meet the stringent requirements of the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry for solids washing separation & Drying, in the most challenging process conditions. Agitated filters and dryers, combined filter-dryers are designed to remove the residual liquid phase from the cake by performing the filtering and drying operations in the same vessel.


The slurry is charged onto filter through the flow of gravity from the reactor installed just above the filter or at the slurry pump.


While the slurry is being charged into the filter, the filtrate will pass through the filter cloth by gravity. To further improve the flirtation rate & to keep the filter clean from any sort of sedimentation, the agitator should be brought down to its downward position for it to keep on rotating in the forward direction.


  • Multiple Processes like Solid Liquid Separation, Agitating / Washing, Resuspending / Mixing Extraction, Crystallizing, Drying can be performed within a closed system.
  • Ideal equipment /system for hazardous / toxic material.
  • Various multiple processes as above can be carried in single equipment an added advantage.
  • Removable filter bottom with conventional clamps or bayonet locking system.
  • Heated/unheated agitator, agitator with two or three arms, with simultaneous axial and radial agitator movements for efficient mixing and agitating as well as for the smoothing of the cake.
  • Large heating area resulting in an outstanding heat transfer rate by heating the vessel walls, the vessel bottom as well as the agitator blades.
  • Multiple washing of filter cake feasible with different solvents/ washing fiuids possible with Lesser liquid consumption
