Quick Quote


M512 manual centrifuges are the only manually cleaning, vertical centrifuges built by the technical engineers at US Centrifuge Systems. M512 manual cleaning centrifuges offer advantages not found on competitive manual clean units:

  • Rugged frame and integrated centrifuge-bowl enclosure manufactured from 1/4-inch thick plate steel for added durability and longer working life.

  • Hinged centrifuge-bowl enclosure lid secured by hand-wheel clamps during operation that makes opening the unit to access the centrifuge-bowl for cleaning quick and easy.

  • Spindle and centrifuge-bowl feature a tapered fit for smooth operation.

  • Spindle bearing-housing and centrifuge-bowl assembly are easily and quickly removed from the machine frame as one unit for convenient and simplified maintenance when bearing replacement is necessary.

  • Standard hard-anodized aluminum centrifuge-bowl surface finish for added durability and corrosion resistance.

  • Centrifuge bowls include a stainless steel feed cone and impeller assembly for improved separation efficiency.

  • Easy-to-remove bowl-liners and included liner lifting tool make centrifuge-bowl clean outs quick and simple.

  • Variety of standard options and system accessories allow customers to tailor a machine for specific applications and facility requirements, all competitively priced.

M512 manual cleaning centrifuges feature a rugged heavy-duty frame design with a hinged enclosure cover and heavy-duty lid clamps. The standard centrifuge bowl is a hard-anodized aluminum assembly that includes a stainless steel feed-cone and impeller mechanism for maximum separating efficiency. The removable standard bowl-liner is made from a durable 100-mil ABS-plastic and includes a bowl-liner lifting tool for easy removal of the separated sludge cake.

The M512 can be used as a portable unit to serve multiple fluid reservoirs or can be permanently located to serve a single dedicated fluid reservoir. The M512 can also be supplied as part of a complete pre-engineered system customized to suit a specific industrial application and customer facility requirements. A variety of tanks, pumps, valves, piping, machine platforms and system controls are available.

How the M512 Works

M512 manually cleaning centrifuges are designed for a wide variety of tough processes and demanding liquid-liquid and liquid-solid centrifuge separation, solids dewatering, and centrifuge liquid filtration and fluid clarification applications.

Dirty liquid continuously feeds through the feed-tube and into the spinning bowl. The incoming liquid travels under the feed cone and into the bowl chamber where four impeller blades accelerate and maintain the liquid at full rotational speed. The liquid then travels vertically upward through the bowl. Particles heavier than the liquid separate and move to the perimeter of the centrifuge-bowl, depositing on the inside wall of the bowl-liner and forming a dense solids cake that becomes relatively moisture free under accelerated gravitational force. The clarified liquid exits through the center hole in the bowl-lid and into the bowl-enclosure where it collects and drains out through the outlet fitting.

After an elapsed period of process time, the bowl-liner reaches its solids holding capacity, and the machine is turned off, coasting to a stop. The hinged enclosure cover is unlatched and opened and then the bowl-lid is removed from the bowl-bottom. Using the provided bowl-liner lifting tool, the liner is removed from the bowl-bottom. Solids are scraped from the bowl-liner, which is then cleaned out and put back into the unit to resume operation.
