Schenck Process SCC Vibrating Centrifuge

Supplier: Schenck Process

Built tough for long service life.


Your investment in Schenck Process is protected by many years of experience in designing and building process equipment. The Schenck Process SCC Centrifuge uses leading edge technology and solves many performance and maintenance problems associated with more conventional centrifuges that may be found in the market today.

Proven working principle.

The Schenck Process SCC Centrifuge is a horizontal vibratory centrifuge which works on the principle that rapidly vibrated material will fluidise and flow with the frictional forces between particles and the basket being decreased.

This makes it possible to convey the material along the sloping surface of the basket. The high gravitational forces created by the rotation of the wedge wire basket drives off the surface water and the coal is dried.

Designed for easy access.

The Schenck Process SCC has a hinged front door for easy access to the basket for inspection and replacement. The inlet chute is fixed to the door so that it swings clear of the basket for easy basket removal. There is no need to unbolt the chute separately for removal.

Spring tuned vibration system.

The Vibration system is a twin mass system which has been mass and spring tuned so that the excitation frequency is below the resonance frequency of the system.

As the mass in the basket increases the resonance frequency decreases and gets closer to the excitation frequency. This means that the amplitude of the vibration increases as the centrifuge is more heavily loaded making the system self regulating.

Peak loads will cause a momentary increase to the vibration in order to clear the overloading and stop the centrifuge from bogging.

Flexibility of configuration.

The SCC centrifuge is designed to be configurable to either a left or a right handed drive version. This flexibility of design provides the user greater latitude in setting out plant layout.

Plus, other features.

Ceramic wear resistant tiles are used to line the high wear areas such as the inlet chute and the dried solids discharge chamber and chute. Ceramic tiles are also used in the central discharge area. The high alumina wear liners provide longer service life.

The main drive bearings are oil lubricated using a circulation pump as standard. Self regulating vibration to clear peak loads. There is less chance for overload and less adjustment required. Only use the proven and reliable Schenck Process vibrator motors.
