Industrial Centrifuges

Multotec's centrifuges and decanters are sourced from Siebtechnik Tema. They offer an efficient and cost-effective solution for solid/liquid separation in various industries, particularly in dewatering and classifying applications in the mineral processing industry worldwide. This equipment achieves precise separation while requiring minimal energy, space, and residence time. They can efficiently dewater large amounts of solids, reducing their final moisture to low levels.

Industrial centrifuges are ideally suited for use with a wide range of minerals, chemicals, and foods. They are also compatible with ZLD applications such as coal, copper, various salts, mineral tailings, mineral products, polymers, fry oil, vitamins, lactose, and effluent ZLD, among others.

The Siebtechnik Tema industrial centrifuges are compact units requiring little space. This makes them ideal for small operating areas. In addition, they:

  • Are designed to increase separation efficiency for all particle sizes
  • Reduce waste and enhance discharge quality
  • Have excellent wear resistance
  • Use the latest automation solutions & instrumentation to improve operating reliability
  • Are manufactured by internationally-recognised industrial centrifuge specialists

Industrial centrifuge decanters from Multotec

Centrifuge decanters from Multotec are available in three distinct, application-specific types and come with international service and support.


TS Decanter Centrifuge: : typically used in gas-tight process systems

  • High degree of reliability
  • Closed process housing
  • Proven sealing design

This decanter separator features a proven sealing design.


DZ Decanter Centrifuge: supplied in an open process, vapour-tight and gas-tight design

  • 2-piece product housing sealed with chamber rings
  • Rotating part geometry designed specifically for separation equipment
  • Machines with bowl diameters > 1 000 mm are standardn

This centrifuge features a gas-tigh design, making it effective in filtration and centrifugation applications.


DZS Screen Decanter Centrifuge: the combination of a solid bowl decanting centrifuge and screen scroll centrifuge

  • Exceptional dewatering results
  • Ideal for crystalline and granular products

The industrial decanter centrifuge is widely recognised as the most versatile type of centrifuge among all the machines that operate on the centrifugal force principle. It also dominates the global market share.

This large market share can be attributed to the legislation requirement that pertains to reduced waste content in effluent around the world. The mineral processing industry’s requirements for maximum production plant efficiency have also contributed to the decanter centrifuge’s large footprint.



This decanter centrifuge offers exceptional dewatering results in centrifugation filtration applications.

Our centrifuge equipment has a long-standing track record

Renowned for their durability and performance, the Siebtechnik Tema screen scroll centrifuge and vibrating screen centrifuge are the two longest-standing centrifuges available from Multotec.

The first Siebtechnik Tema vertical screen scroll centrifuge for industrial applications was developed in 1938, and the first horizontal centrifuge was developed in 1954 with the name CONTURBEX. Today, there are thousands of these centrifuge screening machines in use worldwide.

The Siebtechnik Tema vibrating screen centrifuges have been successfully used for dewatering coal since 1965 and are reliable coarse coal centrifuges.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a centrifuge?

This equipment is designed to create mass rotation and intense centrifugal force, usually to enable liquid/solid separation. Multotec's solutions incorporate industrial centrifuges, including the complete Siebtechnik Tema range, perfectly designed for the separation of a wide range of minerals and ores.

What industries use centrifuges?
They are used in various industries including mineral processing, chemicals, food, coal mining and copper mining. For over 50 years, Multotec has provided the mineral processing industry with products and solutions that optimise recoveries, including a wide range of industrial centrifuges.
How does an industrial centrifuge work?
It spins a mixture at high speed to separate solids from liquids through centrifugal force, achieving solid/liquid separation efficiently. The separation of ore from liquids and waste materials, in mineral processing, is an example of centrifuging. Multotec’s centrifugal decanters separate sediment from liquids in a suspension.
How Siebtechnik Tema centrifuges help my operation?
They are designed to be compact, requiring little space, making them perfect for small operating areas. They offer an economical and efficient solution for the dewatering process, contributing to the reduction of space, energy, and residence time needed for operations.
International mining houses such as Glencore Xstrata, Anglo Coal, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto use Multotec equipment to reduce running costs and optimise plant performance.
