With simple robust design the Automatic Pusher Centrifuge gives high throughputs under the toughest conditions. Operates purely on with mechanical drive the Pusher Centrifuge is suited for all fields for the separation of slurries with solid which filters easily. The average particle size of the solids must be at least 0.1 mm. Pusher Centrifuge utilizes continuous Filtration for the suspended, fast draining, crystalline and granular or fibrous solids from the liquid phase. These solids can be washed as they are transported though the basket.
Complete separation of mechanical unit from the process area
Can be fitted with Long and Short or Single and two basket
Has easy accessibility for maintenance Low Energy Consumption and is Easy to install
Application: Used for all fields for the Separation of Slurries with Solid.
Sturdy welded construction of the bearing housing with incorporated oil pan and motor support. Vertically installed oil pump(s) which can be removed without draining of the oil. Hydraulic pusher control incorporated in the pusher piston
Solids collecting housing and volute race discharge
Identical housing for single and two-stage baskets
Feed pipe or feed screw
Various devices for the distribution of wash liquor
"Wear protection package” available for abrasive products
Oil pressure joints for simple assembly and disassemble of the basket and pusher plate
The internal basket is available in several alloys. The basket shall is perforated with large filtration holes. Single and two-stage baskets in the long or short versions are available for optimum solution of the separation requirements
The basket is fitted with a slot screen. The wedge bar profile and the slot width are chosen according to process requirements, i.e. depending on particle size distribution and slurry concentration. The slot width is usually between 0.1 and 0.5 mm
Hydraulics and Pusher Action:
The pusher plate (or inner basket for two stage units) is operated hydraulically. The spindle pump(s) vertically installed in the oil pan, supplies the required quantities of oil at up to 60 bar pressure. The reversing mechanism is integrated within the pusher piston. It consists of a hydraulically operated controller valve. Stroke length adjustment is available as standard
