FT15 Disc Bowl Centrifuge
A supporting framework intended for bench mounting houses the separator, complete with its variable speed drive control unit, food reservoir and the necessary ancilliary equipment.
The feed reservoir, positioned over the centrifuge, is made from grey anodised aluminium and contains a polypropylene on/off valve. The separator bowl assembly is made up of stainless steel disks and an anodised aluminium casing with nitrile rubber sealing ring, housed in a polypropylene shroud which incorporates the cream and skimmed milk outlets.
A motor, directly coupled to the separator bowl, is mounted vertically in a cast aluminium casing with cushioned clamping feet. The casing acts as the support for the separator.
Ancillary equipment to facilitate a thorough investigation into this type of separation consists of:
- Optical tachometer
- Product collecting vessels
- Stop clock
The backboard includes a sectioned diagram detailing the component parts of the separator bowl and describing its mode of operation.
