As long as necessary – with enormous advantages
The SHORTBOWL decanter centrifuge is designed overhung-mounted. Because of the special geometry of the rotating parts it is highly suited for the separation of fine solid particles having a specific gravity that is very different from the liquid phase.
The design principle with its strict separation of process and drive unit makes this decanter ideal for applications in pharmaceutical or food manufacturing operations (CIP standard). This machine concept also means that the decanter can be used in high-temperature areas or for pressure-tight processes.
From laboratory standard through to rough work in the primary materials industry the SBD decanter is ideally suited. Versions in special materials, explosion protection and inert gas overlay or hot gas blanketing have been part of our offering for over 50 years. We also increase operational reliability by fitting oil-circuit lubrication for all bearings, including gear unit and worm bearings. We also offer this version with USDA certification.
Product washing can be more advantageously carried out than with normal decanters.
