Chemicals, Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals and Food Industries

There are numerous possible applications for Flottweg Tricanter®, Sedicanter® and Sorticanter® machines as well as decanters, belt presses and separators:

In the areas of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs, Manufacturing lactose and casein in the dairy industry

  • Separating plastics – plastics recycling
  • Algae harvest
  • Manufacturing soya milk and soya proteins
  • Drying okara
  • Manufacturing wheat starch
  • Dewatering PVC
  • Dewatering suspension polymers

Manufacturing Foodstuffs

The foodstuffs industry offers a wide range of applications for mechanical separation technology. Flottweg centrifuges are in accordance with the quality standards and expectations of both consumers and foodstuffs producers.

Euroby supplies centrifuges manufactured in Germany by Flottweg – for numerous applications in the foodstuffs industry, such as the production of wheat starch, soya milk or soya proteins. Flottweg machines also satisfy the most exacting requirements when it comes to producing lactose and casein and removing dust from whey or drying okara.

Chemicals, Petrochemicals and White, Industrial Biotechnology

Flottweg mechanical separation technology represents an important component in many chemical and white biotechnology processes. Flottweg decanters and separators treat liquids, separate liquid blends, classify or dewater solids and extract constituents.

In the petrochemicals industry, dewatering PVC plays an important role. When dewatered using the Flottweg decanter a lower residual moisture level is attained, which saves costs during subsequent thermal drying.

Separating Plastics – Plastics Recycling

Centrifuges also play an important role in the separation of plastics and plastics recycling. In particular, the Sorticanter® developed by Flottweg and sold by Euroby in the UK provides economical plastics recycling by separating different types of plastic.


Algae are the precursors for many different areas of industry. Utilising Flottweg technology, Euroby offers an innovative process for high-efficiency algae harvest. The Sedicanter® dewaters the concentrated algae to 22 to 25% solid content. Only this specially designed decanter centrifuge is capable of efficiently concentrating the fine and soft algae cells.
