Typical areas of DCLW decanter centrifuge used


Decanters (decanter centrifuges) are “solid material oriented” centrifuges which can process liquids / suspensions with high solid material contents (up to ca. 60% by volume).

The decanter (decanter centrifuge) belongs the continuous sedimentation centrifuges with respect to the eduction of fluids as well as the eduction of solid material.

Typical areas of use are:

Clarification of liquids and suspensions
Thickening of sludges
Dehydration of sludges and suspensions
Classification (wet classification of solid materials in a suspension according to grain size)
Separation of 3-phase mixtures (two fluid phases, insoluble in each other, and a solid material phase)

DCLW high speed, high performance decanter centrifuges are ruggedly built for industrial service and are especially effective in environmentally sensitive areas. With their robust construction and corrosion-resistant materials, DCLW centrifuges provide long service lives and have low maintenance costs even in the toughest environments.
