Oil Centrifuge Units – Manual or Fully-Automated Self-Cleaning?

When the average person thinks about recycling, they focus on household plastics, cans, and waste paper. It’s a pretty basic activity for them, which largely revolves around trash separation and colour-coded bins. But there’s a larger scale involved, one which is essential to industrial operations, and that’s liquid filtration. In manufacturing plants, thousands of litres of liquid get used every day, so it needs to be reused, repurposed, or safely disposed of – sometimes all three, because wastewater gathers toxins during industrial processes.
There are also oil wastes that need to be filtered. They range from cutting …

Types of Centrifuges – Some General Information

The demand for unique solutions to modern day challenges has led innovators to develop methods of taming natural forces and energy for commercial and domestic purposes. A centrifuge is an example of a solution that is used in the separation of solid components in fluids and liquid filtration. The centrifuge works by spinning objects in a circle on a fixed axis. This spinning action generates two radial forces in the centrifuge namely Centrifugal and Centripetal Force.
Centrifugal Force pushes components outward towards the edge of the circle, while Centripetal works in the opposite direction, pulling components inwards towards the …

The accelerating demand for industrial air filtration technologies Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, we talked about the need to protect the factory interiors from air pollution. Some of these plants recycle our waste, but they deeply damage their own health in the process. Today we’ll take a broader look at the problem. Regarding air pollution and its relation to filtration, multiple sectors are involved. They include power generation (both fossil fuels and renewable energy), manufacturing, healthcare, metals, and more. The type of air filter used in a firm depends on the type of in-house waste it generates. Air pollution can be in the form …

The accelerating demand for industrial air filtration technologies Part 1

In China, it’s common to see people walking around with disposable dust masks over their mouths and noses. It’s not a style thing – it’s a smog thing. In some places, the situation is so bad that when you’re offered a high-end job, they’ll throw in a penthouse with its own air filter. It’s actually in your contract, so the higher your floor is, the more important you are in your organisational hierarchy, especially if your workplace is paying your rent. Luckily, the air down under is still mostly fresh.
While few parts of the world have reached Chinese air pollution …

Advantages of Clean Coolant Part 2

In Part 1 of this series, we talked about the benefits of clean coolants for your manufacturing processes. Now we’re going to see how cleaning coolant fluids can affect other areas of your industrial budget. First, it drastically cuts down the number of rejects. Roller grinders are the final stage of quality control. They ensure your finished product is smooth, clean, and unblemished. If the product is tainted in any way, it has to be discarded.
As we mentioned in Part 1, blemishes include scratches, stains, and scorched surfaces. These are all a result of dirty coolant damaging …

Advantages of Clean Coolant Part 1

Coolant is a crucial part of many industrial processes. Without it, machine parts overheat and can stop working altogether, leading to expensive replacement and repairs. In cars, coolant cools the engine parts as it circulates. For industrial use and manufacturing plants, coolants are more frequently made from cutting oil, or from water infused with antifreeze and anti-corrosives.
Other coolant options include freons, halomethanes, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, anhydrous ammonia, and waterless coolants like ethylene glycol and polyalkylene glycol. Cutting fluids are generally made using water-oil emulsions. Coolants might be passed outside the heated metal parts, or they may flow through them, …

What our wastewater filtration solutions offer

Conservation is important to a lot of us, but it’s not always considered as a business principle. Unless it can save money (or make money), many manufacturers and industry players are still not as concerned with the environment as they should be. However, the majority of municipal regulations require wastewater to be treated before it’s released into the sewer. This is because sewer treatment plants are equipped for organic waste disposal. They don’t have the means to break down industrial waste and chemical toxins.
At the same time, filtering wastewater might allow it to be re-used, reducing the overall cost …

Why the Auto Vertical Clean ic45-av is an acclaimed centrifuge for renewable energy

Environmental conservation is an increasingly ‘IT’ topic, especially since we started implementing our National Energy Guarantee in response to last year’s Paris Climate Agreement. Of course, it’s always been essential to protect our surroundings, but it was expensive too, so businesses had little incentive to comply.
Fortunately, modern technology has developed affordable environmental sustainability. In many cases, it saves money too. Recycling waste products is one way to conserve energy. Waste products can be used to generate biofuel, and modern filtration devices are designed to utilise minimal energy while ensuring maximal efficiency, saving, time, money, and power. Our …

Castle pioneers waste-water heat capture technology

When we think about the water we flush down the toilet, drain down the sink, or pour out when we bath or shower, we tend to focus on how much of it is going to waste. Since water is a finite resource, our primary approach is to use less water, so that we waste less of it. We are driven to take shorter showers, close the tap when we brush our teeth, and recycle any wastewater we can. There’s another angle though, and we’re moving in that direction.
The latest innovation involves heat. Warming your water – whether it’s for a …

Food, Beverage & Packaging – Basket Centrifuge

You might wonder about the type of wastewater that is generated from the food manufacturing industry. A good example is potato starch generated from processing potato crisps. Wastewater can also be released while separating grape pulp from grape juice.
In potato processing, wastewater is generated at two stages. The first batch comes from washing, loading, and peeling the raw potatoes, which produces water contaminated with stones, soil, and a little starch. The second batch comes from rinsing the crisps after paper-thin slicing, which releases more starch.
At the filtration level, this starch needs to be coagulated into a sludgy paste while the …
