Decanter Centrifuge Design Considerations

by Whitney Craig8. April 2009 14:10
When looking at using a Decanter centrifuge for a separation application there are a couple key factors to consider during selection.  The first consideration is the desired phase to be either the solids or the liquid.  If it is the solids, do you need a dry dewatered solids or a concentrated/thickened solids.  If the desired phase is the liquid and a high level of recovered solids/clean centrate must be achieved this will dictate increased pond depths in the Decanter centrifuge. These key considerations ... [More]

Disc Centrifuge Designs

by Whitney Craig8. April 2009 13:15
Disc Centrifuges come in three basic designs.  One is a Solid Bowl, which retains the solids on the inside diameter of the centrifuge bowl assembly.  The solids are removed manually by hand.  Generally they are used in applications with extremely low solids volumes in the feed stream since it is time consuming to remove the solids.  Another design is a Desludger disc centrifuge.  These design disc centrifuges will discharge the solids while operating either by a timing control or a self-thinking...

Basic Centrifuge Designs

by Whitney Craig7. April 2009 16:29
Centrifuges are basically categorized into six types (Decanter, Disc, Basket, Pusher, Peeler, Tubular Bowl).  A Decanter Centrifuge come in two general designs - Solid Bowl or Screen Bowl.  A Basket Centrifuge is either perforated or solid bowl design.  The Disc Centrifuge is either a Solid Bowl/Solids Retaining, Desludger or a Nozzle Centrifuge, The Pusher Centrifuge could have a pusher plate or a scroll, and the Peeler Centrifuge are basically all very similar in general design. The same applies to tubu... [More]

Two Types of Centrifuge Separation

by Whitney Craig7. April 2009 15:36
In the usage of a centrifuge you have two designs based on general physic rules.  One design is based on filtration via spinning the feed material at a increased "G" force allowing the liquid phase to pass through a filter media leaving the dewatered solids on the filter media.  The other basic centrifuge design is via sedimentation.  In this separation design a feed slurry is accelerated to a increased "G" force allowing the solid phase to settle against the inside diameter of the rot...

Another Illinois OCC Proud Bike Owner!

Thank you very much for the phone call today.  I remembered seeing the Aaron bike episode.  Definately one of the sweeter bikes they've made and they've made some incredible bikes.    If your bike is up at the shop, I'd love to come by with mine when the weather breaks.  I'm sure we can both agree that the experience of working with the Tuetul's was a good one and it shows in the outcome of our bikes!  I attached a couple of photo's of my bike.  I hope to meet up with you one da...
