The rotating parts of this solid bowl centrifuge are supported at one end only, which can be an advantage in certain applications. The centrifuge rotor ends just beyond the dividing wall of the solids housing allowing a clean discharge of solids from the product housing.
This design allows excellent accessibility to the rotating parts for inspection and maintenance. Overhung rotating parts are easily cleaned by CIP-connections and therefore guarantee the best possible cleaning, even for food production.
Advantages of the overhung construction:
- Cost effective construction
- No shaft in the product solids area
- Uncomplicated sealing for gas-tight operation
- Easily accessible
- Simple to clean
