Dewatering Centrifuge | Operation, Animation, Uses, Benefits

A dewatering centrifuge is an industrial centrifuge specifically designed to dewater, i.e., separate water from sludge. The separation of water from a slurry thickens the sludge and reduces the volume of wastewater for disposal. Therefore, this centrifuge is also known as a sludge thickening centrifuge. Operation The operation of a dewatering centrifuge can be simply […]
