The Model M512 Centrifuge is a manual clean, basket centrifuge for separation of suspended solids from process liquid. Some of the Centrifuges Features Include:

The standard centrifuge-bowl is a hard anodized precision-machined aluminum assembly that includes a stainless steel feed-cone and impeller mechanism for maximum separating efficiency. The removable stan- dard bowl-liner is made from a durable 100- mil ABS-plastic and includes a bowl-liner lifting tool for easy removal bowl-liner of the separated sludge cake. Replacement plas- tic liners are affordably priced making spares an economical solution for faster clean outs and less down time. Spare bowl lid SHCS and hex-key tool included.

Centrifuge options include:

Stainless steel centrifuge-bowl assembly

Clean Cycle

After an elapsed time period of process time the bowl-liner reaches it solids holding capacity and the machine is turned off coasting to a stop. The hinged enclosure cover is unlatched and opened. The bowl-lid is removed from the bowl-bottom after unscrewing the four SHCS using the provided hex key tool. Using the provided bowl-liner lifting tool, the liner is removed from the bowl- bottom. The solids are then scrapped from the bowl-liner, which is then cleaned out and put back into the unit to resume operation.

Process Cycle

The dirty liquid continuously feeds through the 1” NPT inlet / feed-tube and into the spinning bowl. The incoming liquid travels under the feed cone and into the bowl chamber where four impeller blades accelerate and maintain the liquid @ full rotational speed. The liquid then travels vertically upward through the bowl. Particles heavier than the liquid separate and move to the perimeter of the centrifuge-bowl depositing on the inside wall of the bowl-liner forming a dense solids cake that becomes relatively moisture free under accelerated gravitational force. The clarified liquid exits through the center hole in the bowl -lid and into the bowl enclosure where it collects and drains out through the 3” outlet fitting.
