Tubular Centrifuges are designed to separate low percentages
OPERATION: Up to 20, 000 gravities of centrifugal force cause
suspended solids to migrate to the centrifuge tube wall where they
are retained. As the fluid travels up through the tube, smaller
solids eventually migrate to the wall and the clarified fluid is
discharged through the top center of the tube.
FLOW: Fluid flow in and out of the centrifuge is continuous while
the solids are collected on the tube wall in a batchwise manner.
Flow rates may be as high as 700 gallons per hour depending on
particle size, density and required separation efficiency.
SEPARATION EFFICIENCY: Solids capture of up to 99.9% is possible
depending on product characteristics and flow rate.
