Separators - disc centrifuges
Separators are the most commonly used type of disc centrifuges (other machines of this type are clarifiers, concentrators, purifiers and nozzle centrifuges). These centrifuges owe their name to a set of plates placed in the outer part of the rotating drum and are mainly used to separate different liquids from one another. The centrifugal force causes a fluid of greater density to settle on the spaces between the discs, which is then removed by the hydraulic system.
Applications of disc centrifuges
Separators are used wherever high accuracy of separating various liquids is required. Since they operate at a higher rotational speed than decanter centrifuges, they are also well-suited for the separation of very fine solid particles (even up to 5 μm) from liquids, especially when the mixture has a slight difference in density.
Disc centrifuges are used in many industries, including:
in the food industry - food and drink processing;
- in the petrochemical industry;
- in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries;
- in the processing of oils and fats;
- in the recycling of plastics.
