Prerequisite for centrifugal separation by centrifuge
Centrifugal separators are designed for liquid-based applications. Using centrifugal force, they are used for separating suspensions consisting of two or more phases of different densities, i.e. they can be used for liquid-liquid separation, for liquid-liquid-solid separation or for liquid-solid separation. They are equally as effective at separating liquid mixtures at the same time as removing solids.
Prerequisite for centrifugal separation by centrifuge is that the components of the product
– can be separated mechanically,
– have different densities and
– do not emulsify
“Separation” means the separation of liquid mixtures which consist of two liquids, with simultaneous removal of the solids contained in the liquids.
“Clarification” is the removal of solids from a liquid.
