Inverting Filter Centrifuge with Direct Contact Drying

May 28, 2014

Heinkel inverting fiter centrifugeThe inverting filter centrifuge eliminates some of the inherent flaws of conventional centrifuge technology. The result is the first-ever centrifuge with an axially moveable filter cloth, allowing it to be inverted while under rotation. This completely discharges the solids, leaving the filter cloth free of residual heel while maintaining a totally enclosed gastight system. Heinkel USA offers the HF & F model centrifuges, incorporating inverting-filter technology, thin-cake filtering and PAC direct contact drying of material — all in one machine — for separation/filtration, providing tremendous processing and cost-savings advantages.
