Features of ASM centrifugal separator

The ASM centrifugal separator is capable of efficiently separating mixed liquids with fine particles or with a small difference in specific gravity by means of centrifugal force that is 20,000 times as high as gravity. This is one of the highest levels among industrial centrifugal separators.
This powerful centrifugal force is also used to separate protein, which is extremely difficult to sediment.

Mechanism of ASM centrifugal separator

The ASM centrifugal separator consists of parts such as a rotary cylinder that rotates at high speed, a bearing retaining frame, a separate liquid collection cover, and a drag controlling the runout of the rotary cylinder. The liquid to be treated is fed from the lower area of the rotary cylinder and accelerated by three wings. The strong centrifugal force produced by high-speed rotations causes the solid matter to sediment and separate on the internal wall of the rotary cylinder. The solid matter is removed, and the purified liquid is blown from the upper area of the rotary cylinder into the cover and discharged out of the separator. When the treated liquid consists of two kinds of components that do not mix with each other (such as water and oil), the fed treated liquid is separated by centrifugal force into two phases: heavy liquid and light liquid. Since the boundary (e-line) between the heavy and light liquids is maintained in a given position by the difference in specific gravity and the discharge diameter of the rotary cylinder, a clean liquid will be discharged according to the feed ratio, even if the mixed ration between the heavy and light liquids changes.
