How does a centrifuge work

A centrifuge is a special and effective instrument that separates and precipitates a mixture (containing solids) by centrifugal force. Let’s go through how a centrifuge work together:

  •  Starting

The motor drives the gear through the friction clutch, and then transmits it to the vertical shaft to drive the drum to operate evenly and smoothly. And then it reaches the rated speed in 6-7 minutes. Open the sealed water solenoid valve and seal the water to make the drum seal.Open the water purification valve slowly, inject clean water into the drum of the centrifuge, and observe whether the slag discharge leaks.

  •  Separating substances

Adjust the centrifuge to separate the discharge outlet valve, adjust to the appropriate treatment volume and outlet pressure, and the centrifuge enters the normal separation state.

  •  Slag discharge

Long slag separation time may result in close packing of slag (algae pulp) in the drum slag cavity, which can cause poor slagging and imbalance of the drum. If the imbalance is too large, the centrifuge may be damaged. Many factors affect the slagging cycle and slagging time, and users need to set the appropriate interval according to the specific experience.

  •  Ending

Open the water purification valve slowly, inject clean water into the drum of the centrifuge, and repeat the slagging procedure to clean the drum. Close the water inlet valve, close the sealing water solenoid valve, turn off the motor, use the brakes at intervals, or stop naturally.
