During operation, the solid particles slide through the stepped screen basket. The stress on the polymer granulate, as well as product abrasion, is very low. This is achieved primarily by a special material guidance system and our Conidur® or OPTIMA screening devices.
Excellent separation is achieved, purely through mechanical separation, resulting in a very low residual product moisture level. Normally the centrifuge is operated with an adjustable pre-watering system, to separate part of the carrier water before centrifuging. The capacity of the TURBOCASCADE is considerably enhanced by this. The centrifuge takes up very little space, considering its separating capacity.
Depending on requirements and operating conditions, we use Conidur® perforated plates or slotted screens, which are not blinded with granulate splinters or threads due to the self-cleaning properties of the screen.
We also make the TURBOCASCADE gas- and vapour-tight. In this variant, the water is first removed from the circulating air in a cyclone separator and then returned to the housing. This design principle results in very low heat losses in the centrifuge, which is highly desirable. The dewatered solid can be discharged in any position, vertically or horizontally, as per specific customer requirements.
