Drive system of Decanter Centrifuge FOODEC 200
The bowl is driven by an electric motor and a V-belt transmission drive. Start method is Direct-On-Line (DOL) using a mechanical clutch. Power is transferred to the conveyor by means of a two-stage planetary gearbox. The speed difference between the bowl and the conveyor is obtained by an efficient back drive system.
Operating principle of decanter centrifuge
Separation takes place in a horizontal cylindrical bowl equipped with a screw conveyor. The product is fed into the bowl through a stationary inlet tube and is smoothly accelerated by an inlet rotor. Centrifugal forces cause instant sedimentation of the solids on the wall of the bowl. The conveyor rotates in the same direction as the bowl, but at a different speed, thus moving the solids towards the conical end of the bowl.
The new Foodec design enables the hydraulic pressure inside the bowl to improve scrolling through a narrow opening. Only the driest fraction of the solids leaves the bowl through the solids discharge openings into the casing. Separation takes place throughout the total length of the cylindrical part of the bowl, and the clarified liquid leaves the bowl by flowing over adjustable plate dams into the casing.
