The principle of the centrifugal separator

- Feb 20, 2019-

The centrifugal separator has two working principles: centrifugal filtration and centrifugal sedimentation. Centrifugal filtration is the centrifugal pressure generated by the suspension under the centrifugal force field, acting on the filter medium, causing the liquid to pass through the filter medium to become the filtrate, and the solid particles are trapped on the surface of the filter medium to achieve liquid-solid separation; centrifugal sedimentation is utilized The principle of rapid sedimentation and stratification of the components with different densities (or emulsions) in the centrifugal force field enables liquid-solid (or liquid-liquid) separation.
