Minimize maintenance & haul-away costs with a solid bowl industrial centrifuge.

Separate solids from liquids where removal of fines is important for recycle and reuse goals. The PRAB industrial centrifuge is ideal for separating all types of ferrous and non-ferrous solids from oils and water-based coolant with flow rates up to 50 gpm. Eliminates consumable media and minimizes maintenance.

PRAB’s solid bowl industrial centrifuge is specifically engineered for heavy-duty applications, such as chip processing and industrial wastewater treatment. Our centrifuge provides consistent, reliable operation over long lifecycles.

The industrial centrifuge effectively separates solids from liquids in metal processing applications where removal of fines is important to recycle and reuse goals. It provides high performance liquid/solid separation for all types of particles including metallic, ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic solids. Available in manually cleaned basket style (complete with reusable liner), semi-automatic, and fully automatic self-cleaning designs.

Manual Centrifuge

PRAB’s solid bowl manual clean industrial centrifuge is designed exclusively for industrial use. Process liquid is either pumped or gravity fed to the centrifuge inlet. Process solids are centrifugally separated from the liquid phase and collected in the rotor that has an easily removable flexible liner. The entire clean-out process can be accomplished in as little as 5 minutes with the inclusion of a spare liner.

Semi-Automatic Centrifuge

Using no filters or consumables and very few moving parts, the feed enters the dirty liquid inlet and progresses upward through the rotor body. Centrifugal force is applied to the liquid stream in the main body of the rotor, causing solid particulate to move toward the rotor wall. Solids are deposited at the rotor perimeter while clean liquid overflows through the top of the rotor. The clean overflow discharges at atmospheric pressure via gravity through the clean liquid outlet. Solids deposited in the rotor are compacted by centrifugal force and allowed to build up until they are removed during the cleaning cycle. The clean cycle is manually initiated by the operator.

Centrifugal force is applied to the liquid stream in the main body of the rotor, causing solid particulate to move toward the rotor wall. Solids are deposited at the rotor perimeter while clean liquid overflows through the top of the rotor. The clean overflow discharges at atmospheric pressure via gravity through the clean liquid outlet. Solids deposited in the rotor are compacted by centrifugal force and allowed to build up until they are removed automatically during the pre-set cleaning cycle.

Specialty Centrifuge

For operations where a standard, lined-bowl centrifuge is not sufficient, PRAB offers specialty units.

316L Automatic Centrifuge

Using no filters or consumables and very few moving parts, feed enters the dirty liquid inlet and progresses upward through the rotor body. Centrifugal force is applied to the liquid stream in the main body of the rotor, causing solid particulate to move toward the rotor wall. Solids are deposited at the rotor perimeter while clean liquid overflows through the top of the rotor. The clean overflow discharges at atmospheric pressure via gravity through the clean liquid outlet. Solids deposited in the rotor are compacted by centrifugal force and allowed to build up until they are removed during the pre-set automatic cleaning cycle. All wetted parts are made of 316L stainless steel.

High-Speed Stacked Disc Centrifuge

The feed is introduced to the rotating centrifuge bowl from the top and is accelerated in a distributor before entering the disc stack. It is between the discs that the separation takes place. The water and heavier solids are forced towards the bowl wall where the solids accumulate and the water proceeds over the top disc to a clean outlet. The light phase moves towards the center and leaves the bowl through an open outlet (oil discharge). The machine can have a manual or automatic solids cleaning cycle depending upon the chosen unit.
