“Clean filtrate without having to add filter aids and a dry briquet for sorted disposal.” This is how Sascha Schönecken, Sales Manager of GKD-CompactFiltration, summarises the problem that faced this business unit of GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG. The solution to this complex challenge was elegant in its simplicity: “Maxflow”. GKD-CompactFiltration’s Maxflow concept is a patented compact filter system that represents the perfect solution for a wide range of tasks in the filtration sector. The Maxflow compact filter combines filtration and briquetting in a single piece of equipment and allows particle separation down to the micro-filtration range. Whether for cooling lubricants or process fluids and effluents, whether in the automotive or the metal-working industry, Maxflow has gone from strength to strength since its introduction and has repeatedly proved its efficiency in many different fields of application.
