How Your Labour Budget Should Play Into The Type of Centrifuge You Buy

Here at Interfil, we have seven efficient centrifuge options that you can choose from. You may be wondering which unit is the best one for you. There are different factors to consider, such as the floor space that you have available, the specific waste you are separating, and your overall machine budget. You might also take into account the size and scope of your employees.
Our entry-level unit is the IC45. It’s a small, portable unit, so if you have a minimal team, it would be quite good. It’s a centrifuge that can be moved from site to site servicing clients …

Research You Should Conduct Before Purchasing a Centrifuge

Purchasing a centrifuge for biofuels or wastewater processing shouldn’t be taken lightly. Centrifuges are complex machines and they represent a significant investment for your business. Therefore, you want to take special care to purchase a machine that fits your needs, budget and will provide long-lasting performance for your business.
Where can you start? Ultimately, the biggest challenge when researching centrifuges is determining the type of machine you will need. Then, once you’ve narrowed your machine specification list, you should also consider the manufacturer’s track record, as well as maintenance, safety and training requirements.
Thorough pre-buy research is absolutely critical when purchasing a …

The advantages of choosing an Interfil multi-stage centrifugal blower

Here at Interfil, we are well known for our efficient, high-quality products, and our multi-stage centrifugal blower is one of our best sellers. It’s a finely crafted, heavy duty machine. It is constructed using 10mm all metal cast alloy that gives it a solid body and minimises rust while still being light in weight.
The impellers are individually balanced to ensure no vibration and smooth running and are keyed to high grade shafting of 4140. Extra layers of protection are available with coatings to the internals and impellers. Extra coating substantially improves resistance to aggressive or corrosive vapours, vastly increasing the …

Why Warranties Are Crucial for Machinery Used in Manufacturing

For manufacturing businesses, machinery is often mission-critical. When your organisation’s machines fail, processes bottleneck and businesses slows to a trickle. Although a machinery warranty won’t stop failures from happening, they do offer businesses insurance for any potential break-down.
In effect, a warranty can save thousands in repair or replacement costs, and help your business get back up-and-running faster.
You can think about manufacturing equipment warranties as a guarantee. A warranty says that if you follow proper use and maintenance schedules, the machine will run properly for a specific period of time. (The most common are 12-month, 3-year and 5-year warranties.) In manufacturing, …

Why You Should Do Your Research When Choosing a Centrifuge

Choosing a centrifuge for your industrial processing plant or laboratory isn’t an easy decision to make. A wide variety of liquid-processing centrifuges are available on the market; each type designed for a specific processing task. A wrong choice can lead to less-than-desirable results, i.e. a cake that’s not dry enough or a solution that’s not pure enough.
The key to avoiding unfavourable results is choosing a centrifuge that’s designed for your applicant.
For example, oil refineries require precision from their centrifuges. Most refineries meet exacting liquids-solids content ratios. Using the wrong centrifuge for this type of application would produce dirtier fuels. …

Why a heavy duty design is so vital for your wastewater filtration system

What comes to mind when you think of wastewater? You’re probably thinking about your restroom or the murky mess that is left after you’re done scouring your pots and pans. Yes, that’s wastewater, but so is the run-off from your washing machine, the puddles in the street on a rainy day, the excess liquid from irrigation farming, or the splashes on the road when you wash your car.
Water is a finite resource which means unlike sunlight or oxygen, it’s possible for water to run out. For this reason, we often recycle our wastewater so that we can use it again. …

● Proven ability to remove contamination to less …

A close look at the DIESELCRAFT CYCLONE SERIES OIL Part 1

In this post, we’ll cover the basic functions of oil centrifuges before taking a look at the DieselCraft Cyclone series.
The purpose of oil centrifuges, as you no doubt are aware, is to remove contaminants based on particle density; this goal is achieved via an appropriate maximum number of passes hourly combined with maintaining oil flow efficiency to allow proper oil drainage.
With oil centrifuges, the oil centrifuge chamber powers at high speeds in order to filter between 2% to 10% of the total fluid volume at a time. The filtration removes both large particles and submicron contaminants, and the cleaned …

Reasons why people choose DieselCraft water sensors

Water sensors monitor liquid levels and trigger an alarm light and/or sound to warn workers when levels are either above or below a given threshold.
Water sensors can be found in industrial settings such as nuclear power plants, where measuring cooling liquids ensures plant safety; automotive plants, where levels of gasoline, engine oil, brake/power steering fluids etc. are monitored; food and beverage companies and other consumer product manufacturers, where liquids are monitored during production to ensure product quality, and so forth. Water sensors are also key components of industrial filtration systems and wastewater management, especially tanks used for …

The main uses of filtration media

Several industries use filtration media to separate particles and fluid in the workplace and at work sites.
Depending on the industry, the given fluid being separated can be a liquid, gas or supercritical fluid (i.e., a fluid that is without distinct liquid or gas phases), and the filtration media that’s employed consequently varies. The goal, however, remains the same: to separate substances by having the substances interact with a filter in fluid (liquid or gas) form.
Centrifuges are sometimes used to separate substances. Unlike filtration, where substances are filtered, centrifuges force solids to the bottom of the …
