How it Works
A mixture of solids and liquid is continuously fed through the top opening of the basket centrifuge. The rotating force of the centrifuge pushes the liquid through a perforated or slotted basket. The liquid drains to the lower bowl and exits the machine through the liquid discharge pipe. The solids are contained within the basket and become progressively more dry as they are conveyed to the top where they are finally discharged through the solids discharge chute.
