Centrifugal Separators

Featured industries served by the Centrifugal Separator: Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, Coatings, Ceramics, Water Processing, Recycling

Liquid solid separation equipment recovers valuable materials from your waste stream

Ideal for removing high-load suspended solids from liquid slurries, the Russell Centrifugal Separator will increase your productivity and reduce costs. An advanced version of the traditional separators used for liquid-based applications, our versatile centrifugal separator is able to process flow rates of up to 100,000 litres per hour, efficiently separating soft and fibrous oversized solids from liquid slurry.

A cost-effective solution for liquid filtration, our centrifugal solid liquid separator is easy to operate. Slurry can be pumped or gravity-fed into the industrial centrifuge and the liquidity controlled by tilting the separator body. The centrifugal impeller enables the machine to achieve high-capacity separation with meshes as fine as 20 microns. And, with solids and liquids discharging simultaneously, the separator supports continuous production.

How Russell Centrifugal Separator Helped Different Industries:

  • Centrifugal separation for distilling spirits

    Blue Valley Spirits, a distiller of craft spirits, faced challenging wastewater regulations. Introducing a Russell Centrifugal Separator improved the purity of its liquid waste. Wastewater can now be disposed of in public sewers, reducing disposal costs. Spent grain, a by-product of the separation process, is sold as animal feed. Read more

  • High capacity filtration for wash water

    Ecuries de la Picaute, a Belgian equestrian centre, needed to improve the filtration system that removes excrement from its hydrotherapy pool. The existing sand filtration system required manual cleaning, a time consuming and unhygienic job. A Russell Centrifugal Separator continuously removes solids from the water, reducing downtime.

  • Processing Pectin with Centrifugal Separators

    Italian food processor, Silvateam S.p.A., manufactures pectin from fresh citrus peel. A static sieve used in the refinement process allowed some product to go to waste. Optimising the refinement process with a Russell Centrifugal Separator increased Silvateam’s production yield by 50 tons per annum, worth €0.5 million at wholesale pricing. Read more

Frequently Asked Questions

How do centrifugal separators work? 

Using centrifugal force generated by the high-speed rotational element spinning inside of the separator, the heavier and larger particle size materials (solids) are separated from the lighter and smaller particle size materials such as liquids which pass through a filter media of a determined aperture. Both solids and liquids are discharged at the same time via different outlets, allowing for a continuous separation process to be achieved.

Where are centrifugal separators used?

The most common applications where these separators are used are in the wastewater, waste oil and dairy industry as it allows for large scale separation of liquids from solids. Centrifugal separators are versatile machines and come with varying sizes of mesh screens making them ideal for all kinds of applications from cheese production, plastic recycling and juice and pectin processing.
