Filter systems

Large Surface melt filtration
Seebach melt filtration solutions enable our customers to manufacture highest quality, gel-free polymers. A constant gel retention ensures best profitability and reliable plant. Major, global customers attest that Seebach reduces maintenance frequency and ensures higher output by increased filter life span. With our experience and support we boost capacity and enable our customers to penetrate new market segments.

From our vast experience and simulation abilities we are able to identify the optimum filtration technology choice. We work with existing plants to refurbish systems, increasing capacity and optimizing performance. Our portfolio covers all types of filter element from ultra-clean, customized solutions using exchangeable mesh packs, to large-quantity small screen inserts. We develop, design and manufacture the perfect solution for your melt treatment. Complete single filters, pressure hit eliminated switchable solutions and even quick exchange solutions, Seebach has all required technologies and broad experience to adapt to your needs.

15“ leaf disc advantages
- maximized plant availability
- constant high product quality
- perfect gel retention for all high transparency, extremely thin materials, and on all stretched polymers
- secured product quality by dead-zone-free and rheologically optimized filter housings
- filter life span up to 3 years without interruptions ensured by lowest start up dP
- reduced maintenance frequency drastically increases service life of all parts, reducing costs & effort
- significantly reduced polymer-shearing limits temperature increase (proven on various polycarbonate plants) and saves additives
- boosted capacity due to larger filtration area and lower pressure loss

John Crane Seebach is the only supplier with successful references in 15“ leaf discs worldwide. Visit our booth and review our references!

CFD Fluid dynamic analysis

Modern flow simulations are increasingly used to identify the root cause of filtration problems, and in the development of filtration solutions for custom applications. The main challenges addressed by Seebach‘s modern flow simulation relate to the scientific ­characteristics of the fluids to be filtered and the filter media to be used. The foundation of the Seebach approach is our extensive knowledge and experience in the filtration of non-Newtonian fluids which change their viscosity with applied shear.

Seebach has extensive experience in the simulation of fluid and media flow charac­teristics. Utilizing the simulation process we can optimize existing systems or design new systems optimized for specific applications.

Seebach has developed the possibility to describe the dynamics for classical fluids such as gases and liquids, and also for non-classical fluids such as polymers and resins.

As a result, we are able to provide the following data (graphically expressed diagram):
- Expected start pressure loss
- Velocity profile within the filter
- Shear stress and viscosity profiles
- In case of a temperature-dependent simulation: temperature gradient

About us

Company details

Seebach GmbH / John Crane
Today. Tomorrow. Together.

John Crane acquired Seebach in 2018 to complement its existing filtration business, further enhancing its technology leadership and providing new capabilities to reduce innovation cycles and grow into mission-critical process industries. With more than 5800 people at over 200 locations in 50 countries, and decades of experience, we are a leading full-service and full-solution provider.

Seebach filter elements and filter systems have been made in Germany since 1970. We offer tailor-made designs with precision manufacturing that outperforms competitor products with longer lifetime and more efficient performance.  Our designs offer continuous process optimization and innovation for challenging filtration applications in polymer, mining, chemical, food and beverage, aerospace and pharmaceutical industries.

Polymer melt filtration systems remove solid and soft particle (gels) contaminants during the polymerization process and the production of final products. The polymer melt filters are designed using proprietary CFD analysis.

Seebach supports clients with dimensioning and customizing new filter systems, and optimizing existing systems with new filter candles or filter discs. Filter discs, candles and mesh packs for replacement of existing filter parts in screen-changers and large area filters.

At K-Show we will present our latest melt filtration technology developments. As a world first, we will exhibit a 15” leaf disc life scale melt filter. Our flexible system combines the lowest start up dP with the largest installed filtration surface, and dead zone free geometries. This maximizes your process efficiency and production reliability.
