Solid Liquid Filtration Consultants Pty (Ltd) was registered on 5 February 1985 and has therefore been in the business of Solid Liquid separation for more than 26 years. However, in partnership with our international principal suppliers we have more than 85 years of experience in the field of solid liquid separation.
Most commonly known in the filtration industry as SLFC, we specialises in the design and supply of industrial filtration equipment for the use in solid liquid seperation.
We have supplied filtration packages for gas-to-liquids projects in Nigeria and Qatar and has been awarded major contracts by Tongaat Hulett Starch and petrochemicals giant Sasol.
We have completed projects in Botswanna, Zambia, Malawi, NamibiŽ and South Africa.
SLFC started as a two-man band and grew gradually and now employs 16 people. We started off doing a little repair work. Then we sold our first filter and just grew and grew.
Today SLFC is active in a range of industries, including the chemical, petrochemical, edible oil and food processing. We are also looking to expand futher into the mining industry. Although we have done work for the mining market in the past, it is now starting to pick up again as a result of the recovering world economy.
SLFC is planning to work with Chemical Plant & Engineering Pty Ltd (CPE), one of Australia's leading process equipment design and supply companies, to roll out an agitator that CPE has developed into the South African market. This product has already been successful in the gold mining industry, particularly gold leeching, as a result of the cuts in power emmisions the product brings about.
Although we have a small staff base and in excess of 100 subcontractors at any one time we are able to manufacture high quality filtration equipment. In addition our in-house engineering office ia able to put complete filtration plants up, which involves the designing of structural steel, pressure vessels, piping systems and plant automation. Currently our engineering team comprisses of electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, as well as a project manager, who looks after the projects and negotiates and develops the projects.
"Filtration is one of those sectors of the market which you can learn the basics but you can never know enough about. It all comes down to experience."
