Optimize performance with Alfa Laval P3 solid bowl centrifuge

Alfa Laval's P3 decanter centrifuge was specifically developed for rough solid-liquid separation duties in the mining and mineral industry. To maximize durability, P3 decanters are built with carefully selected components such as Duplex stainless steel, heavy duty bearings and a stiff box beam frame. All interior parts of a P3 decanter centrifuge exposed to abrasion are protected by replaceable tungsten carbide tiles.
