Operating principles of the Disc Separator RTC150-01-076

The disc separator RTC150-01-076 with double centripetal pump is used for the separation of mixtures composed of a liquid (oil) and pasty substances (soapstock or gums), with simultaneous removal of the solids contained in the mixture. The centripetal pump discharges the separated components of the process liquid. In the centripetal pump the rotational energy of the process liquid in the bowl is converted into pressure which conveys the components as follows:
-The light component (oil) is discharged by the lower centripetal pump at a pressure of 3 bar maximum.
– The heavy component (soapstock or a similar pasty substance or wash water or liquid soap) is discharged from the bowl under pressure by the upper centripetal pump. It flows off by gravity through the lower discharge.

Basic operating principles

Separators are used for the separation of liquid mixtures or for the separation ofsolids out of liquids or liquid mixtures.
High centrifugal forces are produced inthe rotating bowl.
Under the influence of the centrifugal forces, separation of the liquid mixtureand/or ejection of the solids particles takes place most rapidly.
The specifically heavier components are displaced to the bowl periphery, whe-reas the specifically lighter components are displaced towards the centre of thebowl.
The high centrifugal force is produced by very high bowl speeds. On the onehand, high bowl speeds signify high efficiency,while on the other hand,theysignify high material stressing of the separator.
