How does an Alfa Laval separator work?

Many business sectors, especially pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries, rely on separation methods to remove solid particles from a solution or separate two liquids. A separator uses centrifugal force to filter out solid particles or separate liquids of different densities. A vertical separator is based on the sedimentation principle and has an inlet, outlet and separator. When the liquid-liquid mixture or liquid-solid mixture is released into the separation chamber, it activates the spinning vortex to start the filtration process. The heavy solids will sink due to gravity and collect at the bottom, where you can remove them easily. If you are separating liquid-liquid mixtures, the high-density liquid, like water, flows out through the discharge outlet. In contrast, the less dense liquid, like oil, remains at the centre, and you can recover it from the suction orifices.

What are the applications of a GEA separator?

GEA Westfalia separators are available in different designs, making them useful across multiple industries. For instance, they are useful in water treatment facilities since they help with pre-filtration processes and minimise the loss of liquids during filtration. Some separators are also useful in treating waste and separating sewerage waste from water. In the food and beverage industries, manufacturers separate various liquids and solid particles to create high-quality products, like removing olive oil from olive paste or cream from milk. The use of centrifugal separators in chemical industries helps manufacturers minimise water contamination. Vacuum separators are useful in industrial and commercial settings since they collect dust and debris during production to prevent clogging the ventilation systems or the filters in vacuum cleaners. They also remove liquids from vacuum cleaners and keep the air clean and safe for inhalation.
