Catalysts are important tools in the synthesis of active pharmaceutical components and chemical products. Recycling of precious metal catalysts from the process flow is a factor in cost control and environmental suitability. Catalysts used to increase and accelerate chemical reactions are an essential part of chemical reaction processes. the use of the catalyst in the synthesis of the ingredient or intermediate, but also the recovery of the catalyst.
Effective selection of a valuable fine filter in the catalyst recovery process is a factor in achieving these cost savings. Valuable metal catalysts are typically supported on carriers. Carbon supports are the most common carrier media for the precious metal-bearing catalysts in the processing industry. Palladium on alumina and palladium on calcium carbonate are examples of catalysts and supports that facilitate the hydrogenation of intermediates. While these catalysts do not last forever and are spent, the catalysts need to be recovered. For this purpose, the ceramic membrane can be used with the filter.
Advantages of Ceramic Membrane for Catalyst Recovery
* High micrometer particle rejection
* Continuous filtration
* Stable filtration performance
* Long life
* Easily refreshed by Backflush
* No leakage
