The principle on which the operation of our centrifuge systems is based is that of taking advantage of the different specific weights of the substances that must be separated. Separation takes place inside a cylindrical-conical container, called drum, which is made to rotate at high speed by an electric motor in order to increase the force of gravity thousands of times. The product is fed into the centrifuge through a pipe; the rotation makes the solid deposit on the inner walls while the liquid forms an inner ring, whose thickness is determined by the position of the outlet level, through which a clarified liquid exits.
The auger is found inside the drum; its function is to transport the solid product towards the outside, which will then be discharged by an evacuation system.
The use of natural or chemical additives is made necessary for the separation of some types of solids, which facilitate said process.
