High capacity solids-ejecting centrifuge for rendering and meat & fish processing industries, specially designed for extremely demanding separation jobs. Alfa Laval AFPX centrifuges achieve high flow rates, high solids content and high-temperature processing.

AFPX 高速离心机-AFPX High Speed Centrifuge

High capacity for demanding rendering applications

  • Handles high flow rates & solid contents
  • Suitable for high temperature processing
  • High sludge capabilities
  • Ideal choice for tough conditions
  • Australian Service & Support for maximum uptime

The AFPX series discharges solids intermittently, while at the same time splitting a tight emulsion of two liquid phases.

The centrifuge comes in optimized models that are suitable for a considerable number of duties, including separating fish press water, stick and glue water as well as meat and fish extracts.

Other applications include the purification of fish oil and fish liver oil, animal fat, peel oil, and similar products.

How it works

Separation takes place inside a rotating bowl. The feed is introduced to the rotating centrifuge bowl from the top via a stationary inlet pipe, and is accelerated in the distributor, before entering the disc stack. The distributor is designed especially to ensure smooth acceleration of the feed liquid.

The separation of liquid-liquid-solids takes place between the discs, with the oil phase moving through the disc stack to the centre and is discharged through pipes and sprayed out into the collecting frame.

The water and solids separated from the oil move out to the periphery, the water is led via channels in the top disc to the paring chamber, where it is pumped out of the rotor with means of a built-in paring disc.

The solids are collected in the periphery, from where it is discharged intermittently via the centrifuge cyclone.

The solids discharge is achieved by a hydraulic system which at preset suitable intervals forces the sliding bowl bottom to drop down and thus opening the solids ports at the bowl periphery.
