CENTRIFUGE DECANTER

A centrifuge decanter; consists of a solid cylindirical bowl rotating at high speed, a scroll rotating at the same axis with a slightly different speed, a drive group adjusting the speed difference and the body which carries all the rotating elements.

Liquid and suspended solids are fed along the centre line to a distribution room within the bowl and then accelerated into the bowl by centrifugal force through the feeding point. This centrifugal force then causes the suspended solids to settle and accumulate at the bowl wall.

Sludge cake is discharged by scroll from the conical part meanwhile clarified liquid flows back along the bowl and is discharged through the cylindirical end of the bowl by plates which can adjust the level of clarified liquid.

Centrifuge decanters are applied for separation of liquid mixtures, separation of solid-liquid mixtures, dewatering, thickening, classification of solid-liquid mixtures and extraction of components.
