Research in the fields of filtration and dewatering connected with the use of ultrasound (US) has been carried out mainly with small laboratory-scale batch or continuously operating devices. So far the only large scale industrial cake filtration applications have been developed and manufactured by Larox Oyj for mining industry. These applications apply ultrasound for cleaning of ceramic capillary action elements having at maximum total filtration area of approximately 150 m2. Several hundreds of filter units have been delivered worldwide during the past two decades.
