Heinkel Inverting Filter Centrifuge Features Direct Contact Drying

April 10, 2014

The inverting filter centrifuge has eliminated some of the inherent flaws of conventional centrifuge technology. The result is the first centrifuge with a filter cloth that is axially moveable. This allows the filter cloth to be inverted while under rotation, which completely discharges the solids, leaving the filter cloth free of residual heel while maintaining a totally-enclosed gastight system. Heinkel USA offers the HF and F model centrifuges that incorporate inverting filter technology, thin cake filtering, and PAC direct-contact drying of the material, all in one machine for separation/filtration. With these combinations of technologies, it is possible to dry product inside of the gastight centrifuge, thereby reducing overall drying cycle time or eliminating downstream drying equipment. Other advantages include no residual heel remains on the filter cloth, repeatable batch quality, and full flexible process recipe management. The HF and F model machines deliver high production capacities, and excel in handling difficult filtering materials.
