Separators with high rotation speeds perform the continuous separation of a wide range of solids from either one or two liquids. High-speed separators are primarily used for separating fluids.
As a result of the centrifugal force in separators, the fluid/particles with the greatest density collect in the outer periphery of the separator bowl. Both fluid phases are then discharged through separate outlets.
Alfa Laval has comprehensive expertise in the design of the disc stack which is the heart of the separator and the key to good separation performance.
