Filterable products are separated in a perforated basket. The liquid/solid slurry is introduced into the rotating body of the centrifuge via a feed pipe. The centrifugal force pushes the slurry to the side, forcing the liquid through the perforations in the basket while the solids are retained within by means of a fine screen or cloth.
The remaining solids (cake) can then be washed and spun at higher Cs to achieve a relatively dry cake. The resultant cake is then discharged through the bottom of the basket by means of a single motion plow mechanism.
- Install a clean filter bag
- Securing the lid
- Connect the three process lines on the cover,
- Start the centrifuge.
- Adjust the machine speed via the speed controller.
- When the tachometer indicates that the machine is at feed speed, the process slurry is introduced into the rotating bowl.
- Solid particulate accumulates in a uniform ring on the bowl’s inside diameter while liquid filters through the porous solid cake and exits the centrifuge discharge outlet.
- When the solids holding space is completely full, the feed is stopped, the washing cycle is started and adjusted to a higher speed to obtain the dryest cake possible.
- At the end of the cycle, the centrifuge is stopped and the filter bag with the solids is removed.
Use interchangeable solid or perforated baskets appropriately.
