10 Reasons a Disc Centrifuge Cannot Reach Operating Speed

A disc stack centrifuge uses the centrifugal force it generates to separate the liquid from solid and liquid from the liquid. The centrifugal force exerted is a direct function of the bowl’s rotating speed. A disc centrifuge cannot reach operating speed due to several reasons. In this article, we will explore the causes and relevant […]

Can a centrifuge separate salt from water?

A centrifuge cannot separate salt from water. Centrifuges use the force of gravity to affect the separation of solids from liquids. Salt dissolves in water to form a solution. The centrifugal force exerted by a centrifuge separates immiscible phases such as sand from water but not miscible phases such as salt in water. Why can’t […]

Centrifugal Filter | Working Principle, Types, Benefits, Applications

Table Of Contents What is a centrifuge or centrifugal filter? The process of using centrifugal force to separate solids from liquids is called centrifugal filtration. This method uses gravitational force instead of filter media to affect the separation.  A centrifugal filter separates a range of particles based on their density, whereas a conventional filter separates […]

Waste Oil Emulsion Breaking with an Industrial Centrifuge

Table of Contents Synopsis Disc-stack type industrial centrifuges exert a very high centrifugal force on emulsified oils. This force can break waste oil emulsions by mechanical separation. Thus, industrial centrifuges recover clean oil from waste oil emulsion on a large scale. What is an emulsion? When two immiscible liquids mix to form one liquid phase […]

Three Phase Decanter | Working, Benefits, Specs, Applications

A three-phase decanter is a centrifugal separator that separates two immiscible liquids while simultaneously separating the solids. The liquid phases discharge through discrete outlets, and the solids eject out of the decanter’s sludge nozzles. Table of Contents Working Principle The 3-phase separation occurs in the horizontally rotating bowl of the decanter centrifuge. A fixed inlet […]
