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 …

Food, Beverage & Packaging – Sludge Dewatering System

When we think of wastewater filtration in the manufacturing industry, we probably focus on things like used coolant fluid, or the dirty water left over after washing mineral ores. However, the food industry produces masses of wastewater as well, and it comes from unexpected places. For example, in the canning industry, the labels release ink and dyes when they are given their final rinse.

Similarly, manufacturing, stamping and printing the cardboard boxes that are used to pack food products releases toxins into the wastewater. After all the processing is done, this water either has to be re-used or released into …

Must-have Water Sensor Features

Water sensors are an essential part of any oil filtration system. If water gets into your oil or fuel, it can corrode your machines leading to downtime and expensive repair work. The oil itself may develop water-based germs, specifically mould and algae.

These ‘fuel bugs’ can render your oil unusable, but they can also interfere with your production line. Selecting the right water sensor can help you evade this challenge. Here are some criteria you can use to make the appropriate choice.

Indicator light
Sensors function by detecting any drops of water or steam inside your fuel. This water generally sinks to the …

Why We Trust Dieselcraft

Interfil has developed a long tradition of offering top quality filtration and mining equipment. In the three decades, we’ve been in this business, we’ve established our reputation, and we’d like to keep it that way. That’s why the bulk of our equipment was developed, designed, and patented by our own team. We manufacture our machines right here in Australia.

This puts us in a unique position regarding quality control. We believe in what we sell because we created and supervised our machines every step of the way. It also helps that our headquarters is here in Australia, so our clients can …

How The Interfil Magnetic Drum Separator Delivers The Results You Need

Coolants are an essential part of any manufacturing operation. They prevent your equipment from overheating, which reduces downtime and ensures better results. However, the coolant itself works under punishing conditions. It is sometimes passed over extremely hot machine parts, and other times it passes through pipes for internal cooling.

As the fluid cools down your machinery, it picks up contaminants that include gases, metals, and other unwanted particles. These contaminants can end up damaging other machine parts as the coolant does its work, and it can render the coolant itself unusable. That’s why it’s important to routinely clean your coolant.

Once coolant …

All about the Multi-Stage Centrifugal Blowers and Exhausters IA3

Blowers and exhausters have multiple functions in the manufacturing industry. They are essential in wastewater filtration, where they can be applied at the beginning stages of filtration. As the wastewater is let into the filtration system, blowers and exhausters pass over the top of the fluid, blowing away the upper layers of foam and surface contaminants.

Exhausters and blowers can also be used to backwash air filtration systems, getting rid of particle contaminants in aerosols. They can speed up incineration in fire-based manufacturing processes, ventilate coal mine shafts, or extract sulphur, vapour, and other gases. These processes can be done …

Interfil High Flow Vacuum Filtration System 6000LPM

There are lots of different filtration devices, and they all serve the same triple function. They separate liquids from solids, dry the solid for easier disposal, and clean the fluid for recycling or disposal. The drier the solid cake is, the cheaper it is to get rid of, so filtration systems cut costs while improving environmental protection.

Our vacuumatic filtration system operates under highvacumes. It’s a flatbed high flow filtration system, which means the machine is based on a level filtration surface for maximum filtration area and maximum flow. At the upper end of this flatbed filter, there’s a large open-air …

A look at our Magnetic Filtration Drum

Industrial liquids are exposed to a lot of contaminants and toxins, so they need to be routinely cleaned and recycled. Re-using these liquids cuts costs, but if they are inserted back into the manufacturing cycle without being thoroughly cleaned, they will slow down the manufacturing process and might damage your machinery.

The type of cleaning that industrial liquids undergo depends on the nature of the fluid. Oil-based liquids and fluids are cleaned to remove water and biological contamination. On the other hand, coolant fluids are water soluble, so they are often filtered to remove oil products, metallic elements, and similar contaminants.

There …

Why you should opt for a DieselCraft Water Sensor

Water and oil don’t mix, and this is especially important in the industrial sector. While both water and petroleum-based products are used in the manufacturing process, bad things happen when they occur simultaneously. For example, coolants are frequently used to lower temperatures and maintain the smooth flow of machinery.

However, a series of filtration devices and valves are needed to ensure the coolant and fuel don’t mix because this could damage equipment. In the same way, any water that gets into your fuel could be disastrous. This water contamination will adulterate the fuel and can jam your engine or machine. Water …

A Close look at Oil Skimmers

An oil skimmer is a device that is designed to remove oil floating on a liquid surface. Floating oil and grease cling to skimming media more readily than water. Water has little affinity for the media. This allows skimming media in the shape of a belt to pass through a fluid’s surface to pick up floating oil and grease with very little water.

In industrial settings, skimmers can be used to clean oily contaminants from coolant fluids. This allows the coolant to either be re-used or safely disposed of.
The principles for skimmers’ operation are based on the fluid property of oil …
