Turbo Emusep 3-phase centrifuge with manual removal of solids
Description of operation:
The emulsion which is contaminated with solids and foreign oil (free / emulsified) is supplied to the centrifuge in consistent quantities of 5 – 15 l/min. Inside the centrifuge there is a 3-phase separation into emulsion, foreign oil and solids. Once it has been cleaned of solids and free oil, the emulsion is discharged under pressure via a nozzle from the centrifuge drum and fed back directly into the container for purified emulsion. The slurry remains in the slurry insert of the centrifuge. However, this insert needs to be replaced and emptied by hand from time to time depending on the amount of slurry which accumulates. The oil is discharged with the aid of a second nozzle and fed into an after-separating container. There, residual emulsion is separated from the oil due to the effects of gravity and returned back to the centrifuge. The separated oil can be emptied at intervals and disposed of as used oil. All of the control buttons, indicator lights and switch components required for operation of the syste m are housed in the central control cabinet . It is possible to connect an external fault indication, e.g. flashing light, horn etc.
- Reduced requirements for operating media (recirculation – local regeneration)
- Reduced consumption of cooling emulsion (in addition to the displacement losses)
- No costs for additional filtration aids or media associated with disposal, as no additional filtration aids or media are required
- Clear reduction of disposal costs thanks to the increased service life
- Personnel cost savings due to reduced operator outlay (service and maintenance work e.g. at weekends)
- Virtually no production downtime for cleaning work
- Increased service life for the emulsion
- Due to the reduced quantities of solids, the pumps are subject to significantly reduced wear
- Separation of solids 1 – 10 μ / oil separation (free oils)
- Oil separation (emulsified oils) reduced by around 25% – 50%
Helping to protect the environment:
- No waste is generated in terms of additional filtration aids or media such as filter paper, kieselguhr etc. which would otherwise also need to be disposed of.
- The recirculation and reuse of water reduces requirements for fresh water and the amount of waste water generated in the process.
- Improved hygiene in the workplace.
- Significant slurry reduction thanks to the high dry substance content of the slurry.
