The CentriPeel centrifuge is a basket type separator, designed to save time in R&D operations. The FT27 can be operated at up to 400g, reducing the hours typically required for gravity setting a liquid to just a few minutes. The all stainless CentriPeel centrifuge is a solid bowl type separator designed to save time in R&D operations. It has a capacity of nine litres per batch and can be operated at up to 400g. It thereby reduces the several hours typically required for gravity setting a liquid to just a few minutes and also gives much improved separation.
The feed material is poured into the rotating basket (bowl). The centrifugal force separates the heavier phase (material) and forces it towards the periphery. After a couple of minutes a pitot-type discharge tube is manually rotated into the spinning liquid, which thereby is drained from the bowl. The first material discharged will be the purified light phase. After this the heavier phase (if liquid) can be drained in the same fashion by continuing the rotation of the tube. Alternatively, with more viscous materials and solids, the machine is stopped and the bowl quickly removed for cleaning.
