Centrifuges | Acorn Recycling

The liquid passes into a separation chamber where centrifugal forces separate the solid from the liquid.The solid is flung on to the bowl wall and are fed through the scroll into a discharge and onto a conveyor. It can produce a cake of greater than 21% DS which significantly reduces the volume of water for transport and produces a centrate that is clear enough to discharge or return to the headworks or sludge tank.
