Industrial Centrifuges

Multotec industrial centrifuging equipment and decanters, used in many dewatering and classifying applications in the global mineral processing industry, achieve accurate solid/liquid separation for a range of industries. Sourced from Siebtechnik Tema, they are an economical and efficient solution for dewatering large quantities of solids to low final moistures - while needing little space, energy or residence time.

They are ideally suited for use with a wide range of minerals, chemicals, food and 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

Centrifugal decanters from Multotec

Centrifugal decanters from Multotec are available in 3 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: combination of a solid bowl decanting centrifuge and screen scroll centrifuge

  • exceptional dewatering results
  • ideal for crystalline and granular products

The decanter centrifuge is considered the most versatile centrifuge type of all the machines operating on the centrifugal principle. It also has the most overall market share in the world.

This large market share can be attributed to the required legislation around the world that pertains to reduced waste content in effluent. 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 centrifuging equipment has a long-standing track record

The Siebtechnik Tema screen sroll centrifuge and vibrating screen centrifuge are the 2 longest standing centrifuges offered by Multotec.

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


Offering different types of centrifuge, Multotec is a leader in mineral processing solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an industrial centrifuge?

This is a piece of equipment that’s designed to create mass rotation and intense centrifugal force, usually to enable fluid separation.

Multotec’s industrial centrifuging solutions include the complete Siebtechnik Tema range, ideally suited for separation of a wide range of minerals and ores.

What is an industry that uses centrifuging?

The mineral processing industry uses industrial centrifuging in solid/liquid separation.

For over 50 years, Multotec has provided the mineral processing industry with products and solutions to optimise recoveries, including a wide range of centrifuging solutions.

What is an example of centrifuging?

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.
