What is an Industrial Centrifuge?
A centrifuge is a piece of industrial equipment that uses centrifugal force to separate a solid-liquid mixture. The rapid rotation of the machine and an accelerated gravitational force will achieve separation, and it is most commonly used to separate a solid substance out of a highly-concentrated suspension. Many top industrial equipment manufacturers offer centrifuges, including Basket Centrifuges, Tolhurst, Ametek, Peeler, and many others.
Industrial Centrifuge Applications
The main purpose of a centrifuge is to continuously separate large amounts of solids form liquids. However, they can also be used to wash and dry solids, including concrete solids and polystyrene beads. Some of the most common industries that use these centrifuges include:
- Food processing
- Wastewater treatment
- Fish processing
- Mineral processing
- Mineral processing
Choosing an Industrial Centrifuge
To receive the greatest return on your investment, it is important you select a centrifuge that will best support your business operations:
- Revolutions per minute (RPM). This measures how fast the rotor of the centrifuge rotates. This is often the main selection criteria when it comes time to select a centrifuge.
- Relative centrifugal force (FRC). This is the measure of force exerted upon the contents of the rotor.
- Electrical requirements. Most centrifuges run on 110/115/120 V (50-60 Hz). Confirm your electrical requirements before you select your centrifuge.
- Space requirements. All of the extra features won’t help your business if you don’t have the space available to handle the system. Fortunately, there are many models available in all shapes and sizes.
