Operating principles

The oil to be separated is fed into the separator bowl from the bottom through a hollow spindle and enters the disc stack.
The heavy phase and heavy sludge are forced towards the periphery of the bowl, while the light phase flows towards the centre of the bowl, from where it is pumped out for further
processing. The heavy phase is led over a top disc into a chamber where an adjustable paring device pump it out of the separator.
Sludge collects in the sludge space and is discharged intermittently and automatically. The discharge is achieved by a hydraulic system which at preset suitable intervals forces the sliding bowl bottom to drop down, thus opening the sludge ports at the bowl periphery. The sludge is collected in the frame and leaves the centrifuge via a cyclone.

Standard design of Disc Separator PX80VGV-14C

The machine consists of a frame with a base that contains a horizontal drive shaft, worm gear, lubricating oil bath, and hollow vertical bowl spindle. The bowl is fixed on top of the spindle, inside the space formed by the upper part of the frame, the solids collecting cover and the frame hood. The hood carries the liquid discharge system.
All parts in contact with the process liquid are made of stainless steel.
The bowl is of the solids ejecting disc type, with an automatic hydraulic operating system for intermittent solids discharge. The standard electric motor is suitable for variable frequency drive.
