This flat-pond decanter centrifuge has been customized for clear clarification and dewatering in chemical and mineral processing applications. The solid-wall bowl has a cylindrical section for efficient clarification of the liquid and a conical section for drying the solids. Due to the centrifugal forces, the solids are flung onto the inner bowl shell and are transported by the scroll to the solids discharge. On decanter type dryMaster series, the clarified liquid is discharged freely into a liquid catcher and flows off under gravity. CIP-compatability of the decanter can be assured. The housing consists of a frame with supporting feet, protective plates and catchers for the discharged phases. All product-contacting parts are made of stainless steel.
