Alleviations through innovative, modular centrifuge technology
New centrifuges from FERRUM reduce the Total Cost of Ownership
Category: Centrifuge Technology Solutions
The oil quantity required has been reduced by nearly 300 % by increasing the efficiency of the hydraulic unit. This in turn has a positive effect on the maintenance costs, consumption, cooling requirements and the overall weight of the machine.
A further innovation step is the integration of pre-thickening cone inside the centrifuge. For many processes the need for costly external equipment is thereby eliminated, which can result in the reduction of the total cost of ownership by up to 20 % in the solid/liquid separation process.
In many cases where production flexibility is a requirement, two smaller machines can be more cost effective than one larger. Thanks to the state of the art control equipment the different centrifuges in a production line can be synchronized to have a continuous and constant solid outlet. This option can be very imported for the following production step.
The horizontal scraper centrifuges of the series HCZ are one of the best suited for separation of very fine particles from suspension. Even though these machines are batch oriented they can, thanks to the highly automated control and instrumentation equipment, be operated fully automatically in a continuous cycle.
