MINIATURE-SCALE R&D TECHNOLOGY
FT27 CentriPeel Centrifuge – Issue 1

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.

Features

  • Batch centrifuge for liquid-liquid and solid-liquid separations
  • All stainless steel construction
  • Maximum separation capability of 400g
  • Adjustable discharge pipe for removal of lighter liquid phase
  • Batches of up to 9l
  • Ideal for separation of solids, gums, soapstock and washwater from reacted vegetable and animal oils and fats

Benefits

  • Perfect tool for small-scale centrifugal separations
  • Simple cleaning and maintenance

Description

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.

Applications

  • Dairy
  • Liquid foods
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Flavours & fragrances
