FULLY AUTO VERTICAL CLEAN IC45-AV Centrifuge

FULLY AUTO VERTICAL CLEAN IC45-AV - Centrifuge

ic45 Automatic Verticle Clean Centrifuges

The Interfil IC45-AV is high speed Centrifuge suitable for any type of solid and liquid separation. This system has the ability to remove any type of solid from the bowl for auto extraction and continuous feed operation.  Ideal for Waste Water Streams WWTP such as Food Processing applications, Horizontal Directional Drilling HDD for removal of Clay, Sand and Quartz and other unwanted contaminants, Non-Destruction Digging, Ceramics, Potato Starch, Wash Down Bays, Metal Processing and many other industrial processes. The IC45-AV is ideal as a stand-alone system or can be included to compliment an existing system.  It is also suitable as a mobile unit due to its light weight and low power consumption.

The system is offered as a turn-key system, requiring only electrical connection and plumbing to and from the Centrifuge. The capability to Remote Start or utilising the system Stand-by Function of high/ low tank level detection makes the system operator free. System Fault Monitoring via PLC and B2B Alert System allows for minimal maintenance along with quick release componentry for replacement parts.

About the IC45-AV Centrifuge

High G force of 3000 Gravities and a processing rate of 4800 Litres per hour allows for optimum separation. The rotating stainless steel bowl is dynamically balanced at 4000rpm for extra smooth operation and direct driven by a heavy duty three phase induction motor with extra duty bearings and heavy sectioned locating flange and housing. The precision spinning bowl is encased by a heavy machined cast aluminium lid and bucket, with powder coating for standard applications and optional chemical resistant and FDA approved coatings for specific applications.

The IC45-AV is supplied on its own support stand with four anchoring points for secure location to the ground or a pallet/trolley for mobility around the plant. The system design incorporates four point dampeners for vibration isolation with vibration detection control in the event of an out of balance state.

The automatic removal of solids is activated by means of the four load cells for weight detection for automatic solid extraction. For lighter weighted solids where there is not enough differentiation between the liquid and solid a backup timer is included for activating the auto clean function.

An in-line flow meter detects and records the total volume processed per day and total volume from commencement for measuring overall performance.

Optional extras include the addition of VSD Control for the Supply Pump, Polymer Pump Contactors and Polymer Pump VSD Control and the addition of pH Metering and Dosing Control.

Operation

The Interfil IC45-AV Centrifuge works with the use of centrifugal force, allowing separation of any solid particles from liquid. The centrifugal force has a maximum 3,000 gravities. The separation of solids is greatly improved when the liquid is exposed longer to the centrifugal force. This can be achieved by simply slowing the supply rate to the centrifuge. Extended retention time enables improved clarity and cleanliness in the end product.

The liquid is fed through a 1/2" bsp inlet connection in the lid of the centrifuge, entering directly into the high speed rotating bowl where the centrifugal force then throws the solids out of the liquid and to the inner peripheral wall of the bowl. The solid content then becomes compacted as a sludge mixture, and the clean liquid then flows up the centre of the bowl and discharges by gravity through a 2" bsp outlet at the bottom of the centrifuge. The solids left in the bowl accumulate and weigh down the load cell sensors and activates the automatic cleaning device. The cleaning device takes a partial skim of the retained solids and then on its return pass removes the final layer of solids and returns to its starting position. The flow to the centrifuge does not stop during the self-cleaning operation assisting with the removal of the solids through the 3/4"bsp tube and into the solids collection bin. Eliminating the need for additional pumps.

There are several factors that are considered when determining the flow rate through the centrifuge, these include:

  • Viscosity of the liquid (can be changed by increasing or decreasing the temperature)
  • The percentage of solids present in the liquid- ppm- (Recommend less than 5% solids to liquid)
  • Particle size um
  • Difference in specific gravity of the liquid and the solids sg.
  • If the Solids Sink or Float - Bowl Selection

Indicative Flow Rates

Please note, these flow rates are subject to:

  • Viscosity of the liquid, which can change by temperature fluctuations
  • Percentage of solids present in the liquid in ppm, we recommend less than 5 per cent solids to liquid
  • Particle size um
  • Difference in specific gravity within the solid and liquid
  • Whether the liquid sinks or floats
