Molten Sulfur filtration solutions

Molten Sulfur filtration solutions

The removal of solids from molten sulfur is generally done by pressure leaf filters. For over 60 years amafilter – LFC Lochem (Filtration Group Process Systems) designs, engineers and manufactures pressure leaf filters for molten sulfur filtration. Over the years over 15,000 pressure leaf filters have been delivered in various industries to customers worldwide.

Impurities have a negative impact on a trouble-free continuous production of sulfuric acid.

When the catalyst in the burner/converter is progressively polluted by impurities the pressure drop will increase quickly and which will cause shorter operating cycles. Shorter operating cycles result in longer downtime, lower production capacity, and higher production costs.

A similar problem is faced in the production of carbon disulfide, in which process reactor tubes are susceptible to blockage by dirt with the same end result.

The elemental sulfur needs to be filtered from impurities that can be present in the molten sulfur. The impurities are ash, dust, and organic particles.

Filtration of molten sulfur is the best solution to lower the maintenance interval of the Sulphur burners, catalyst beds, and pipe reactors significantly from 3-6 months to 2 years.

Sulfur filters can be found in the following industries:

  • Fertilizer industry
  • Sulfuric and phosphoric acid industry
  • Oil refinery industry
  • Mining industry
