Requires removing solids from the bowl by hand.  For automatic removal please refer to IC45A centrifuge and IC45AV centrifuge.

Interfil IC-45 Centrifuges are high quality units engineered for super efficient separation of solids from liquids. The rotating stainless steel bowl is dynamically balanced for extra smooth operation, encased by heavy machined cast bowl and lid including 4 point dampeners for vibration isolation. Our Centrifuge is able to separate solids from industrial oils, waste vegetable oils, emulsions, solvents and many other industrial processes.

The Interfil IC-45 oil centrifuge units will generate up to 3,000 gravitational centrifugal forces.

Centrifuge Operations

The Interfil IC-45 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.

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 amount of solids present in the liquid
  • Particle size
  • Difference in specific gravity of the liquid and the solids

The liquid is fed through an inlet connection in the lid of the centrifuge, entering directly into the rotating bowl where the centrifugal force then throws the solids out of the liquid and to the side 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″ outlet at the bottom of the Centrifuge. The solids left in the bowl can then be removed manually or ideally removed automatically by means of the self cleaning device.
