Flottweg Sedicanter separates solids from liquids. Its special feature: the solids consist of a sediment with properties ranging between soft and fluid. Typical applications of the Sedicanter are "soft products": ► Biomass, yeast and protein suspensions. ► Fermentation broths and UF retentate ► CIP cleaning liquids and coarse matter-free live sludge ► Fruit juice byproducts and plant-derived raw materials ► Soap separation from oil refining processes The special technical features of the Flottweg Sedicanter: ► Separation of extremely difficult-to-sediment solids by acceleration up to 10,000 gee. ► Hygienic design, thus usable for applications in biotechnology ► Flexibility with fluctuating composition of the feed product by the adjustable impeller ► Gas-tight operation is possible by sealing the separation space off from the ambient air using inert gas

Transport and disposal costs, at over 70 percent, represent by far the largest cost item in sludge dewatering. A powerful dewatering assembly is thus an important criterion. With a Flottweg HTS Decanter in the C series, you can achieve the highest possible total dry solids in the dewatered sludge, thereby continuously saving on transport and disposal. More than 50 years of experience in the dewatering of sewage sludge and continuous further development have gone into the design of the Flottweg HTS Decanter. This experience, combined with references from the entire world, makes Flottweg one of the leading providers of mechanical separation technology. The HTS Decanter is attractive for its performance, its efficiency, and its high cost-effectiveness. The decanters in the Flottweg C series cover a throughput range from about 5 to over 150 cubic meters per hour. We can offer you comprehensive know-how and customized systems.
