Flottweg Separator – Disc Stack centrifuge
Self-cleaning Disc Stack centrifuges for liquid/solid separation are essential in many technical processes. Capacities to 85 m3/hr.
The rotation speed of a Disc Stack centrifuge is much higher than most other centrifuges in industry. The centrifugal force in a Disc Stack bowl is higher than that for example of a decanter. Hence Disc Stack centrifuges are more suitable for processes which require high separation efficiency or the separation of micro particles, or liquid phases having a very small difference in density.
The Disc Stack centrifuge has a wide range of applications including but not restricted to food and beverage, animal and vegetable fats and oils, chemistry, pharmacy, biotechnology, mineral oil products, energy production, and environmental protection.

Separators are essentially designed for three basic process operations:
Advantages of self-cleaning Disc Stack centrifuges
Compared to other centrifuges and filter systems, self-cleaning Disc Stack centrifuges offer several advantages:
Chemical/pharmaceutical/biotechnical – Whey clarification, process water in the starch industry, algae (food additives), industrial biotechnology/fermentation broth, solvents, chemical waste water
Oils and fats – Land animal fat and fish oil, vegetable oil, algae (biofuels), olive oil, biodiesel
