A clear matterCentrifuge for clarifying liquids
Clarifiers are called for wherever liquids have to be clarified or finest solids separated from a liquid, (2-phase Separators, Clarifiers). With product features optimally matched to the clarification process, Flottweg clarifiers also extract the rest of the solids from the liquid phase.
The self-emptying 2-phase separators can be adapted to the product to be processed. Together with the optimized disc stack and the large clarifying area of the bowl, the special features of the Flottweg separator ensure efficient separation of solids. Thanks to the Flottweg proprietary discharge system, the solids are discharged quietly - eliminating a loud discharge noise.
Application areas for Flottweg 2-phase separators
How the Flottweg Separator works
The product to be clarified runs through a stationary inlet pipe into the interior of the bowl and is gently accelerated to full speed by the distributor. The disc stack in the bowl divides the product stream into many thin layers, thus creating a large surface area. The solid matter is separated from the liquid within the disc stack.
Due to the strong centrifugal force, the separated solids settle at the edge of the bowl. The separated solids are expelled periodically at full speed by a hydraulic system located in the lower part of the bowl. The clarified liquid flows from the disc stack to a peeling disk and is discharged under pressure via this disk.
For all tastes
The Rhinegeist-Brauerei in Ohio brews more than 90 types of beer with great passion and creativity. There is something here for every taste. The beers run through Flottweg separator during clarification. It continuously removes different amounts of yeast, proteins and hops - to the great satisfaction of the "beer creators", as this video shows.
