Pieralisi vertical centrifugal separators represent the perfect technological solution to complete the separation process done with horizontal decanters.
Centrifugal separators, taking advantage of their extremely high rotational speed, can reach centrifugal force values up to 10.000G.
This very high centrifugal force is the key element that allows the separators to remove the solid particles that have not been grabbed in the previous separation steps. In addition the attainable performances are linked to many factors, both structural (disc type and design, inside volumes, liquid discharge levels and devices) and operational (flow rate, characteristic of the product, solid quantity and type, temperature).
The product to be clarified enters into the top of the separator through the feeding tube, it is undergone to centrifugal force and then it is forced to pass through the hundreds of internal discs.
The combined action of the centrifugal force together with the presence of the internal discs leads to the separation of the solid particles that are deposited on the bowl wall, to be discharged in an automatic and intermittent way.
The liquids centrally climb back towards the top of the bowl and they continuously exit through free outlets or pumps.
