Decanting Centrifuges

For applications where the solids component of the feed slurry is very low or the material is amorphous and will not filter a solid bowl can be fitted to the Quadramatic™ Centrifuge to act as a decanter centrifuge. In a decanter centrifuge the solids are forced to the outside of the basket by centrifugal force and the liquid phase is allowed to decant over the lip of the basket. Prior to discharging the solids a skimmer removes any remaining liquid from the basket.
