Tricanter Centrifuge



With the tricanter centrifuge from Huading Separator, two liquids with different specific gravities can be individually separated from solids in one single process. Tricanter centrifuge is mostly used for liquid-liquid-solids (3- phases) separation.

The light liquid phase is discharged into the casing through radial holes in the large end hub. The heavy phase is discharged through axial holes in the large end hub.

The liquid radius for the light liquid phase is smaller than the radius for the heavy liquid phase. The liquid level is controlled by plate dams. In order to prevent the light liquid phase from leaving the bowl through the heavy liquid phase outlet, a separating plate is placed on the inside of the large end hub.

The heavy liquid phase has to pass under the separating plate before being discharged into the casing. The liquid radius for the heavy liquid phase is controlled by plate dams.



The liquid radii for the two phases are to be adjusted in such a way, that the interface level is at a reasonable distance from the light liquid level and from the outer diameter of the separating plate. The interface level can be calculated if the densities of the two
liquids are known. The purity of the two liquids can be adjusted by moving the interface level. This is done by changing one (or both) of the liquid levels.

The solids are discharged by screw conveyor via solids outlet ports.
