The material to be processed has a direct impact on both the materials used in decanter centrifuge construction and its configuration.
This webinar will review how to size, select and specify a decanter centrifuge based on the product being processed as well as the quality of cake and centrate required.
- Solids characteristics effecting compaction, dewaterability and flowability
- Centrate quality requirements
- Erosiveness of the solid
- Corrosiveness of the liquid
- Bowl configurations
- Materials of construction
- Centrate discharge methods
- Motor and gear sizing
- Cleaning methods
Previous GEA webinars have reviewed the basic operation of decanter centrifuges. In this course, we’ll highlight options available for those who are specifying a decanter centrifuge for environmental, food, mining or specialty applications.
