Metso Full portfolio CC filter
Get outstanding process performance with optimally low operating costs. The unique design of the CC filter uses a disc of microporous ceramic sectors instead of conventional filter cloths.

Up to 144 m²​ filtration area​

Near absolute ​vacuum ​operating pressure​

Up to 88% less energy usage compared to Scanmec vacuum filter

Typical process​ sizing 1000 kg/m²​


Capillary action within the micropores creates a high suction that causes cake formation on the disc surface and ensures an extremely clear filtrate.

  • Prevents air penetrating the wet filter plate
  • Requires very low energy consumption – typically less than 0.5 kW/m²
  • Achieves a high vacuum level (0.95 bar at sea level) due to low air leakage
