The 1000th Larox PF filter has been successfully delivered by the Outotec Filters Lappeenranta plant in Finland to Xerox Corporation in North America.
Manufactured in Lappeenranta since the late 1970s, Larox PF filters remain the company’s flagship filter product though the company has changed its name from Lappeenrannan Konepaja to Larox and recently to Outotec.
The 1000th installation demonstrates the Outotec Larox PF filter’s reputation as one of the market's leading brands with proven technology. The Larox PF is a key component in heavy duty industrial processes.
First installed at Outokumpu in the USA, Kema Nord AB in Sweden and Oy Lohja Ab in Finland in 1977 for talc dewatering, test filtrations and Liladox applications, Larox PF filters’ 1000th version incorporates an automatic cake discharge in addition to a hydraulic closing system.
Thanks to continuous product development, the capacity of the PF filters has increased from 0.4 tons/m²/hour to up to 1.5 tons/m²/hour.
The durable and proven Outotec Larox PF filters are used in a wide range of applications from the mining and metallurgical industries to the chemical process industries, all of which benefit from the filter's excellent dewatering efficiency, low energy consumption and dry cake.
