Separation down to the last dropSeparators for separating liquids
If two liquids have to be separated, purifiers (3-phase separators, purifiers) are usually used. They separate liquid phases of different densities from each other and simultaneously separate the remaining fine solid residues. Decades of experience and a quality made in Germany make Flottweg separators high-quality, durable and efficient.
Due to their special configuration, Flottweg purifier separators are optimally configured for the separation and discharge of two liquids and one solid phase. The 3-phase separator offers optimized flow conditions within the bowl to ensure maximum separation efficiency. Also with this disk separator, the discharge of solids is hardly audible.
Application areas for Flottweg 3-phase separators
How the 3-phase separator operates
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. Within the disc stack, the liquid mixture is separated and the solids are discharged.
The liquid phases separated by centrifugal force are discharged from the bowl under pressure via two centripetal pumps. 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.
Liquid gold from Andalusia
Over 90 percent of all olives are harvested in the Mediterranean region. One of the most important cultivation areas is Andalusia. Flottweg machines are in use in many companies in the southern Spanish region, for example at Virgen del Voto SL in the city of Bujalance.
In order to obtain the "liquid gold" in the highest purity, the manufacturer relies on Flottweg separator technology for oil clarification and refinement.
