The Flottweg Separator Bowl
The separator bowl is the heart of the centrifuge. The bowl can be designed as a self-emptying disk bowl. The bowl is dynamically balanced to guarantee that the separator will run smoothly. The upper part of the gears and the bowl cowling enclose the bowl.
How the Separator Bowl Works
Flottweg Separator Bowls are designed to combine a large clarifying surface with a large solids chamber. The flow conditions within the bowl are optimized. They ensure highly efficient solid separation in clarifying processes and maximum separation resolution when separating two liquids. The separated solids are periodically ejected by the SoftShot® ejection mechanism.
All the components of the bowl are machined from high-quality stainless steel. There is also a bowl series in super duplex steels. These increase the resistance of the machine to pitting and gap corrosion when processing media rich in chloride (for example, in the mineral oil and chemical industries).
Advantages of the Flottweg Separator Bowl
- Compact, robust construction
- The entire bowl can be mounted and dismounted as a compact component – simple maintenance
- Thanks to the optimized bowl opening system (for example Soft Shot® bowl valves), operation is possible a different speeds. That allows the system to be optimized for the product being processed.
- Available in different materials to suit the application
