At the Achema from 15.-19.06.2015 in Frankfurt/Main, Flottweg will present a special decanter centrifuge for soft sediment (Fig.). The Flottweg Sedicanter® separates solids from liquids. The special feature: the solids consist of a sediment with properties ranging between soft and fluid. A solid with properties ranging between soft and fluid is difficult to process using a standard decanter. Only the patented Flottweg Sedicanter® achieves an optimum result. It achieves the best possible separation precision even with fluctuating feed amounts – thanks to its adjustable impeller. The Sedicanter® combined the advantages of a separator and a decanter. It clarifies the suspension similarly to how a separator does, i.e. it achieves an optimally clarified centrate. At the same time – like a decanter – it processes a large amount of solid material in the feed and achieves a dry solid in the outfeed.
Special Technical Features of the Flottweg Sedicanter®:
Separation of solids that are extremely difficult to separate by sedimentation, by acceleration at up to 10 000 x g
Hygienic design, thereby allowing applications in biotechnology
Available with the tried-and-tested Flottweg Simp-Drive®
Flexibility with fluctuating composition of the feed product by the adjustable impeller
Gas-tight operation is possible by sealing the separation space off from the ambient air using inert gas
