Sliding Discharge Centrifuge
The Turbo-Cascade is a special sliding discharge centrifuge which was developed for the dewatering of solids with a uniform particle size down to about 0.5 mm. The granules slide individually, not as a compact layer, over stepwise arranged screen segments.
Baffle plates which rotate with the basket prevent them from jumping to another segment. The solids are subjected to the centrifugal force for only a very short time but the surface moisture can, depending on the nature of the product, be reduced to some tenths of a percent.
As a rule the Turbo-Cascade is gas or vapour tight with recirculation into the housing of the circulating air which is separated from water in a cyclone. The dewatered solids are discharged tangentially via a pipe which can be swivelled in any direction.
Sliding Discharge Centrifuge TURBO-CASCADE has been used successfully for:
- nylon 6
- nylon 66
- polystyrene beads
