Description

Krauss-Maffei horizontal peeler centrifuges are batch-operated filtration centrifuges known for their reliable performance at high capacities.

They are used in many processes, primarily in the bulk chemicals, fine chemicals, and food industries.

Process advantages
Krauss-Maffei peeler centrifuges with rotary siphon

By utilizing the rotary siphon feature, an original ANDRITZ KMPT development, the overall performance of the peeler centrifuge can be improved considerably. Substantial advantages include:

Increased filtration capacity

Creating a vacuum beneath the filter cloth increases the filtration pressure and boosts the filtration rate.

Superior product purity

The filtration rate can be adjusted to prolong the contact time between wash liquid and solids to produce a purer cake.

Extended residual heel service life

Regeneration of the residual heel is achieved by means of backwashing through the filter medium.

Smoother operation

As a result of backwashing and throttling of the filtration rate, the siphon feature enables feeding into a liquid pool to achieve uniform distribution of solids without vibration, even with fast-filtering products.
