Alfa Laval has more than one hundred and twenty years of experience in meeting this requirement using either decanter or disc stack centrifuge technology, and our products perform this crucial function exceptionally well.
The product range is based on disc stack centrifuges and decanter centrifuges for separating liquids from each other or for removing solid particles from liquids.
These products are used for many different functions in the food and other process industries, on board ships to purify fuel and lubricating oil, on oil platforms to separate oil and water, in manufacturing industry to clean industrial fluids, and for industrial and municipal sewage treatment
Separating solids from liquids plays a key role in countless industrial, food and treatment processes. Decanter centrifuges from Alfa Laval perform this crucial function exceptionally well.
The basic physics behind the decanter is the natural settling action that gravity forces on suspended solids. Nevertheless, waiting for nature to do its job often takes too long.
