The FMT automatic vertical centrifuge lines, type C-1000 and C-2000 are designed for industrial application. The troughput for the C-1000 is approx. 1200 kg (iceberg lettuce) while the throughput for the C-2000 is approx. 1800 kg/hr.
The product which is carried from a washing machine can be transported steadily to the centrifuge by means of, for example, a supply belt. The loading-, unloading-, and centrifuging times can be adjusted continuously and are therefore suitable for nearly every desired product specification.The centrifuge has been constructed vertically. The tumbler was made from stainless-steel perforated material and lined with a Teflon coating.
The entire structure has been attached to the stable main frame by means of vibration dampers. Possible imbalances are neutralised in this way, creating a very solid construction with a long life. The tumbler is closed at the bottom by means of a flexible valve. This valve has been constructed in such a way that the valve is properly sealed during the centrifuging. This valve moves up and down by means of an air cylinder, so that the product can easily leave the machine at the bottom after the centrifuging. The machine comes with an air knife, which has been installed vertically alongside the drum, so that more adhesive products can leave the drum without any problem.
