The wet product is inserted into the top side of the machine. The drum rotates at a low speed while being filled to ensure a good distribution of the product. The movable cone (at the bottom of the drum) closes the centrifuge while filing.
When the buffer conveyor is empty, the drum will start to rotate faster and the centrifuge process starts. The moisture is removed and discharged by the centrifugal force through the wedge wire sieve drum in-between the product.
When emptying the drum, an air knife is used to blow the drum clean so that no product remains behind in the centrifuge.
Cut leafy vegetables (such as cut cabbage types) and various cut vegetables such as carrots, onions and leeks. Depending on the specific weight, there may be limitations regarding product sizes.
The centrifuge can process a capacity of up to 2,500 kg an hour depending on the product, the required attached moisture percentage and the preliminary dewatering.
