A500 Automatic Centrifuge
A500 Automatic Centrifuges are designed with innovative, cost-effective features and integrated processing advantages that are not found on competitive units.
A maximized liquid flow path through the centrifuge bowl increases liquid retention time, and the patented Centri-Lock™ plow-clutch and a three-bladed plow assembly with an efficiency ring minimizes liquid turbulence. Increased retention time combined with minimized liquid turbulence creates superior separating efficiency. After the solids material has been separated, a strong gear-driven plowing mechanism will remove even the toughest cake.
Mechanically, A500 Automatic Centrifuges are a hanging design — smooth and very stable. The machine is simple and inexpensive to maintain with an estimated bearing life of 3 to 5 years, and an estimated labor life of 10 years, depending on working conditions. Removal of the rotating assembly can be completed in a matter of minutes. The bowl enclosure can be easily unbolted and removed.
