What is a centrifuge used for

A centrifuge is a machine that uses centrifugal force to accelerate the separation of different materials that need to be separated. Centrifuge is widely used in chemical, petroleum, food, pharmaceutical, mineral processing, coal, water treatment and shipbuilding sectors. Then let’s see what a centrifuge can be used for?

  •   Polymer resin field

In the treatment of polyethylene and terephthalic acid materials, since the medium is a flammable and explosive alkane organic substance, it is necessary to use an explosion-proof centrifuge protected by an inert gas to make the site and the centrifuge. The internal oxygen content is controlled outside the flammable range, in order to avoid accidents due to accidents in equipment and operation.

  •   Coal chemical industry field

In the coke production process,tar, coke oven gas, coke dust and other substances are produced as the secondary production. After the desulfurization and deamination of the coke oven gas, it can be used as a steelmaking fuel.

  •   Steel and iron field

There are so many applications in steel and iron field, for example, cold rolling, wastewater treatment from hot rolled steel, wastewater treatment in steel-making converters and blast furnaces, and treatment of washing fluids in special steel refining processes.

  •   Wastewater treatment in industrial production

Acid or alkaline wastewater in the production process often neutralized with acidic or basic substances. The wastewater generated during the neutralization reaction and often contains some solid materials. When we dispose these wastewater, an appropriate amount of flocculant or coagulant can be added, in order to achieve the discharge standard after solid-liquid separation.
