Centrifugal Separators Northern Ireland
Centrifugal separators are machines which uses centrifugal force, gravity, and mechanical means to separate compounds. A centrifugal separator can separate liquid-liquid mixtures, liquid-solid suspensions, gas-liquid/solid mixtures, and other particles by specific gravity.
Material is fed into the feed inlet and redirected into the cylindrical sifting chamber by means of a feed screw. Rotating, helical paddles within the chamber continuously propel the material against the screen, while the resultant, centrifugal force on the particles accelerates them through the apertures. These rotating paddles, which never make contact with the screen, also serve to breakup soft agglomerates. Over-sized particles and trash are ejected via the oversize discharge spout.
