FiltersFor handling mud we have one 12’ x 24, Ametek vacuum filter, one 10' x 18' Eimco-screen vacuum filter, and two 10' x 14' Eimco-screen vacuum filters. The three Eimco filters were converted from belt to screen filters in 1980, 1981 and 1992. Bagacillo for filters is obtained from a stationary screen, 48 ft. sq. mounted on the bagasse carrier, 16 holes 5/30" diameter per sq. inch. All filters are fed from one mud head tank and the three filters have level controls. The filters have three 5" x 1 1/4" steam jets for vacuum.
