Decanter centrifuges

Solid-bowl decanter centrifuge – type A

The solid-bowl decanter is the basic, standard machine to separate solids and liquids. Typically applied for all kinds of plastic material (PVC, HDPE, PTA), but also for CaCO3, kaolin, drilling mud, tunnel drilling, and various residues.

Screen-bowl decanter centrifuge – type AS

Screen-bowl decanters discharge crystalline solids over the conical section. These are transported along a cylindrical screen section, where the solids are further dewatered – combining the steps of sedimentation and filtration in one machine. Where advantageous, the solids can be washed on the screen. Mainly applied for potash, fine coal, and BPA.

3-phase decanter

This machine is used when not only a solid is to be separated from the liquid, but when the liquid contains two phases of differing densities. Besides treatment of oil and fats, such machines are used to recover oil from tank cleaning operation (slop oil).

CENSORTM solids-sorting centrifuge – type AC

The CENSORTM centrifuge is used to selectively separate plastic fractions of differing densities. During the process, the product is washed using a minimal quantity of water. The resulting recycled products are then available for high-quality reuse.


Basket centrifuges

Screen scroll centrifuge – type AH

The screen scroll centrifuge is used to separate (and possibly wash) medium coarse particles (> 0.2 mm) like salt, coal, and potash. A scroll is used to transport the solids along the screen basket.

Vibrating screen centrifuge – type AES

The vibrating screen centrifuge is used to separate coarse particles (> 0.5 mm) like salt and coal. The transport of solids is assisted by vibrating the screen basket.


Typical applications

Plastics: PVC, HDPE, PTA, PBA, melamine

Anorganic chemicals: potash, salts, gypsum, soda

Ores and minerals: coal, CaCO3, kaolin, uranium, copper

Residues: drilling mud, tunnel drilling, slop oil, tailings
