Decanter Centrifuge

Decanter centrifuges – or solid bowl centrifuges – from Multotec are designed to ensure maximum separation efficiency and reduce overall waste content in your water treatment systems and mineral processing applications. This ensures excellent by-product recovery. As a decanter centrifuge manufacturer, Multotec ensures its entire range is suitable for use in all solid/liquid separation applications.

Multotec has manufactured and supplied industrial decanter centrifuges and centrifuge equipment to the international mineral, chemical and industrial processing market for over 40 years. Decanter centrifuges are known worldwide for their exceptional versatility and ability to effectively separate very fine solids from liquids of lighter density.

Our range of decanter centrifuges is specifically manufactured for slurries that are traditionally difficult to separate, due to low-density solids or viscous-liquids.  All sold bowl centrifuges in the range offer the following benefits:

  • Compact designs for reduced plant footprint
  • Heavy-duty designs for harsh operating conditions
  • Increased separation efficiency
  • Ideal for all particle sizes – even very fine solids

Our decanter centrifuge solutions:

TS Decanter Centrifuge

Closed housing and precise seals allows for very fine solids dewatering. Ideal for gas-tight processes.

TS Decanter Centrifuge

Heavy-duty decanter centrifuge with minimal maintenance requirements, ideal for open process systems.

DZS Screen Decanter Centrifuge

Combines solid bowl and screen scroll centrifuge technology. Ideal for crystalline and granular products.

Leading the world in custom, application-specific mineral processing technology

In addition to this range of solid bowl centrifuges, Multotec offers a comprehensive range of industrial centrifuges. Click here for more information on this niche product offering.

Optimising separation efficiency

Designed to increase separation efficiency for all particle sizes, these centrifuges are serviced and supported internationally. The entire range has been tested in real-field conditions at optimal centrifugal force in order to ensure optimised separation efficiency.

These machines are programmed to follow the ‘counter-flow’ principle, where separation begins from the bowl centre. The stream is then transported to the smaller-diameter scroll that rotates at a different speed to the bowl, while the clarified liquid flows out the bowl via the large-diameter scroll.

A specialised double-bearing design on each side of the rotating parts facilitates high rotational speeds with high gravitational force required for sedimentation separation. This rotational speed is achieved with an optimised gear unit.

In addition, the height of the liquid level in the bowl can be continuously adjusted in the decanter centrifuge, enabling optimum control of the required separation.

45 years’ experience in mineral processing across 6 continents

Designed to specific processing requirements

Because no two plants or mineral processing applications are alike, Multotec assesses your unique process design and throughput. Using this information, we tailor your industrial decanter centrifuge according to your process requirements to better optimise your plant’s performance.

Our decanter centrifuges recover valuable minerals from slurries, and simultaneously help plants reduce their waste. This has a dual benefit of improved quality of discharge contents and a lower environmental footprint.

The industrial centrifuge range

As a manufacturer of mineral processing equipment (including separation equipment) for the industrial sector, Multotec manufactures a range of industrial centrifuges in addition to its 3 types of decanter centrifuges. This range includes:

Industrial Decanter Centrifuge | Conturbex Screen Scroll Centrifuge | Vibrating Screen Centrifuge | Pusher Centrifuge | Conthick Centrifuge | Turbo Screen Decanters | Twin Cone Decanters | Short Bowl DecantersCentriflex Laboratory Centrifuge | Turbo Cascade Sliding Centrifuge | Coal Centrifuges

Industrial decanter centrifuge

Multotec supplies a range of heavy-duty, high-performance, universal Siebtechnik industrial decanter centrifuges that separate very fine solids from liquids of lighter density. They also offer extreme versatility to a wide range of applications and are designed to increase separation efficiency for all particle sizes.

The unique, robust designs of this range – guaranteed due to its industrial manufacturing – ensures the maximum possible separation efficiency while reducing the waste content – making the decanter centrifuge the most efficient and economical choice for your solid/liquid separation application.

Our industrial decanter centrifuges have the following features:

  • Single or double shaft drive options
  • Ideal for all particle sizes
  • Suitable for very fine solids
  • Incorporated washing system
  • Equipped with replaceable screen segments (replaced outside the machine)

We’ve supplied centrifugal decanters to international mineral processing industries for over 40 years.

Used by both the municipal and industrial sectors, energy consumption for our decanter centrifuges is marginal when compared to other similar centrifuges.
