Available in both single and double bowl configuration, the LUBRISPIN Fluid Centrifuge is suited for a wide range of applications, large and small. Unlike filtration or settlement tank systems LUBRISPIN basket Centrifuges are designed to provide a continuous and consistently low minimum level of suspended solids extending the working life of the fluid while providing a low maintenance and environmentally effective method of separating and handling the separated solids / sludge. If the coolant or oil is clean, tool life is extended too, and the surface finish of the product is improved. The LUBRISPIN fluid centrifuge can also be used for clarification of wash fluids, rinse waters and grinding fluids.
An open topped rotor is driven at high speed. Into this is fitted a long-life removable flexible rotor liner, shaped to the inner contour of the rotor. The rotor liner is secured to the rotor by a removable vane assembly, consisting of a ring and four vertical vanes. Dirty fluid enters the fluid centrifuge at the top of the rotor assembly and is guided via an inverted centre cone towards the base of the bowl. Centrifugal force acts upon the fluid, forcing the denser particles (solids, metal particles, dirt etc) against the wall of the rotor liner. This force forms a dense ‘cake’ which adheres to the wall. The clarified fluid/coolant overflows through the hole in the top of the vane assembly and is then returned clean. Our LUBRISPIN Twin Bowl Centrifuge is identical in principal to our Single Centrifuge, but just has double the throughput. The Twin bowl Centrifuge is particularly well suited to machining operations where a cutting oil is used as a coolant and where a fine finish to close tolerances is required.
