Centrifugal Separators

The power of centrifugal force has been used to separate solids from liquids for over a century. Centrifugal separators are designed to take full advantage of this technology, while acting as a highly efficient solid-liquid separation tool.

Centrifugal Separators have no screens, slotted baffles, moving parts or filter media to cause unnecessary pressure loss or use of large volumes of backwash water. No maintenance is required, however, a periodic opening of the purge valve is necessary to dispose of unwanted solids.

How They Work

The system's influent passes through the separator in a high-velocity circular motion.

Centrifugal force slings the particulates, sand, debris, and sludge outward to the separator wall and downward in a spiral motion. Gravitational force pulls the separated solid particles downward past the spin trap plate into the solids holding chamber.

The cleansed effluent then rises through the vortex locator and returns back to the system.

Purging can be done manually or automatically through the use of a purge package. The lack of moving parts means there is little to no maintenance required.

Performance

Centrifugal Separators can remove up to 98% of the particles which are 363 mesh / 40 microns, and 1.8 specific gravity or greater. Particles with less than 1.8 specific gravity and smaller than 40 microns may be removed with greater effectiveness from liquids with a specific gravity less than water.

Solid/Liquid Criteria Range

Particle Size> 40 micron up to 1 3/4", consult factory for other requirements
Pressure DropMinimum 4 psi with little to no fluctuations
Flow Range8 gpm to 13,953 gpm - higher & variable flow rates possible through manifolding
Fluid LossMinimal fluid loss achieved with a continuous recovery system
