The cake formed in the candle can be discharged by the pulsing it and thus the filtration process is goes on.


The candle filter works as the pressure filter process. These are operated as the batch cycle and the candle filter cycle operated in the very short duration of cycle time but provides in the first stage of the operation the pre coating process is done. This pre-coating is done in the case of when the clear filter is requires immediately after the filter cycle and once the pre-coating is done the slurry is pumped into the filter. The cake which is formed is taken in the candles and the filter flow to the furtherAfter the filtration process is done the heel removal process occurs in which the slurry surrounded the heels and pushed down word.
