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 bowl wall and are transported by the scroll to the solids discharge. There are several possibilities to discharge the clarified and separated heavy and light liquid phases. Both phases can either be discharged freely by gravity or one liquid phase is discharged under pressure via centripetal pump while the other liquid phase flows off under gravity. The decanters are completely CIP-compatible.
The housing consists of a frame with supporting feet, protective plates and catchers for the discharged phases. The machines are driven by a frequency-controlled 3-phase AC motor via V-belts.There are different drive concepts available which permit automatic torque measurement and differential speed control. All product contacting parts are made of stainless steel. FDA approved materials are availablefor the seals.
Processes in the fish and animal by-products industry usually impose particularly stringent requirements on the hygienic design as well as the robustness and corrosion-resistance of the materials. These tasks have been solved by the design features of GEA ecoforce generation; high-performance stainless steels, special chute designs for ease of cleaning, additional spray nozzles at critical points as well as high quality wear protection have been installed.
Rapid and clean processes, high yields and excellent product quality – our customers benefit in many ways with our machines and process lines in a very wide range of different applications
