The FMT automatic vertical centrifuge lines, type C-1010/H, are designed for industrial application. 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 throughput is approx. 1200 kg (iceberg lettuce).
The centrifuge has been constructed horizontally. The tumbler was made from stainless-steel perforated material. 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. In order to empty the drum after centrifuging the drum is slightly tipped by means of an air cylinder, so that the product can easily leave the machine after the centrifuging. The machine comes with an air knife, which has been installed alongside therum, so that more adhesive products can leave the drum without any problem.
The centrifuge line has been equipped with a stainless central control panel in a splaying-proof IP 66 version. All components have been included in this for operating the centrifuges mentioned above, together with the supply- and outlet belt. The necessary safety- and emergency stops have also been considered in order to increase safety, so that the CE regulations will be fully met.
