I'm looking for some real-world experience with upgrading a DE filter. We are currently filtering batches from 50 to 200 Barrels through a 5 square meter Velo filter with verticle screens. We average anywhere between 35 and 100 barrels per filter run, depending on the brand. Our filter vendor claims that 7.5 meter and 10 meter filters will increase filter runs 50% and 100% with proportional decreases in run time. Can anyone verify these improvements with actual experience?
Any recomendations for other filter vendors would also be helpful.
