An algae de-watering centrifuge is an effective way of harvesting algae cells from water. The high g-force (up to 12,000 g’s) spins the algae cells out of the water. The centrifuge discharges the clear separated water.
The ‘self-cleaning’ type bowl auto ejects the concentrated algae cells. This discharge comes out as a slurry or a thick paste ready for algae oil extraction or drying.
Flow through centrifuge allows large scale, continuous separation of algae. This eliminates the use of any filters or other separation machines such as filter presses or screw presses.
Our self-cleaning centrifuge models have different capacities. They can process from 5 gallons per minute to over 100 gallons per minute of algae water. The high g-force does not damage the algae cell structure.
Algae centrifuges primarily have all stainless steel fluid contact. This allows harvesting of salt water algae on a commercial scale.
Advantages of algae centrifuge separation:
- Continuous separation
- Efficient for large scale algae processing
- Produces high yield of algae oil
