Self-Cleaning Centrifuge

What are Auto De-Sludging Centrifuges?

Auto De-Sludging Centrifuge is a disc type centrifuge in which a carefully designed system opens ports in the bowl periphery at controlled intervals to eject the separated solids. The sludge is ejected out instantly due to the extremely high g-force at the periphery of the rotating bowl. These Alfa Laval centrifuges are also known as Self-Cleaning centrifuges.

Self-Cleaning Centrifuge are used for?

Due to the intermittent nature of the sludge ejection cycle, these self-cleaning disc centrifuges are best for application where the %sludge (%sediment) is 5% v/v or less. For higher sludge loads a Alfa Laval Decanter Centrifuge is recommended. A decanter centrifuge can de-sludge the fluid prior to a self-cleaning centrifuge being used as a “polisher”.

In cases where there are no solids or the solids are negligible (< 0.05% v/v), a Alfa Laval Manual Cleaning Centrifuge maybe be used for separation of the 2-liquid phases. Any solids (down to 0.5µ) are separated as well and are accumulated in the bowl of the centrifuge for manual evacuation.
