The Flottweg C Series Decanter Centrifuge
The high-performance of the Flottweg C series achieves the best possible values for total dry solids in the sludge with reduced energy costs
investment in the latest dewatering technology from Flottweg can be amortized over a very short time!
Sewage treatment plants increase quality and efficiency requirements year after year demanding lower energy and disposal costs. As a result, our new C series centrifuge has been developed to meet these demands for dewatering the sludge.
Flottweg explicitly developed the C series to meet the requirements of the wastewater market.
By combining an energy-efficient, powerful Flottweg Simp Drive®, with continuously optimised decanter geometry, Flottweg decanter centrifuges achieve values several percentage points above those of other models. The capacity range enables any requirement to be economically satisfied – currently the largest CSeries machine is the C7E which is capable of processing up to 120m3/hr.
The continuous further development of Flottweg decanter centrifuges guarantees not only user-friendly control, but also optimum sludge thickening (the OSE) and the best possible sludge dewatering (HTS).
Energy savings in wastewater treatment, up to and including energy-autonomous sewage treatment plants, are no longer just nice to have but actually a firm requirement of the environmental community.
The Flottweg C series accelerates the incoming separation medium in a particularly advantageous manner. Thanks to the combination of a large and geometrically optimised sludge discharge, power consumption can be reduced by up to 30%. Euroby’s customers also have the option of using the Flottweg Recuvane® System in some cases enabling energy savings of up to 50% ! That’s as sustainable as it gets.
The Flottweg Recuvane® System
The majority of electric power is required to accelerate the separation medium. After separation, the liquid (centrate) exits the system, leaving the rotational energy created unused. The Flottweg Recuvane® System allows customers to recover part of that rotational energy. The Recuvane® System centrate discharge unit supports the main drive, leading directly to a reduction in electrical power consumption of about 20%.
The Flottweg Simp Drive® – providing automatic regulation and full torque
The Simp Drive® regulates the differential speed between the decanter bowl and the decanter scroll depending on the scroll torque. This is carried out during on-going operation. The bowl and scroll are completely independent of one another. The Flottweg Simp Drive® provides full torque both with the bowl at rest and at maximum speed. During on-going operation, any change in feed rate is continuously detected by automatic torque regulation, this permits Flottweg to ensure the best possible dry solids % cake is produced.
