Macfuge 450

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Self-cleaning centrifuge model MACFUGE 450 is designed and manufactured specifically for the Industrial and food sectors.
OPERATING PRINCIPLES
The product is introduced into the bowl where separation get achieved.
LIQUID PHASES DISCHARGE
Both outlets of the liquid phases are extracted by centripetal pumps integrated into the machine construction; the centrifuge is also equipped with sight glass, sampling, monometer, interception and pressure regulating valves.
SOLID PHASE DISCHARGE
An hydraulic system controls the solid phase discharge automatically operated by means the control panel. Through the control panel the operator have the ability to set the time interval between two following discharges and the quantity by volume to be discharged: from a few liters (partial discharge), to the whole volume of the bowl (total discharge). Moreover through the control panel it is also possible managing a sequence consisting in a series of partial and total discharges.
MATERIALS
The structural parts of the bowl are made of duplex steel, the other parts are made of stainless steel. The cover and all the parts in contact with the product are made of stainless steel. The basement is made in carbon steel. All the seal are in FMP (Viton).
DRIVE
The centrifuge is driven by an electrical motor of 11 kW, controlled by frequency converter. Through a flexible coupling motion is transmitted to the horizontal shaft, then to the vertical shaft through a coupling wheel/pinion. The vertical shaft is elastically supported by springs in both radial and axial direction. In the centrifuge it is also installed a brake system that allows stop timing extremely limited.
CONTROL
The control panel allows to control the centrifuge cycle working: start, working (separation, partial discharge, total discharges), stop. The software of the control panel is also suitable for handling a range of ancillary devices supplied on request: sludge discharge pumps, level switch for the solid discharge tank, water pump maneuvering, frequency converter,etc.
OTHER STANDARD DEVICES AND SUPPLIES
Soundproofing/insulation of the cover, connecting flexible hoses in stainless steel, kit of special tools, prompt intervention spare parts.
