Chances are you won’t know that your centrifuge pump needs repair until you have to stop your production line. Unfortunately, a pump is no small purchase, with some plants spending anywhere from $25–$60k on these pivotal pieces of equipment.
Unexpected downtime means lost revenue (and usually lost product). So knowing how to troubleshoot when your centrifuge experiences issues is critical to getting back up and running to meet your production volume goals.
Because of the nature of sanitary centrifuges, especially in the food industry, there are special considerations that must be taken into account when it comes to upkeep and maintenance. And the one thing you don’t want to do is forego regular maintenance.

Did you know that a centrifuge generates a level of force several thousand times that of the earth’s gravity? With that kind of force, it’s no secret that a separator can quickly become the most dangerous piece of equipment in your plant.
All too often, issues with a centrifuge’s separation process aren’t related to the centrifuge itself. Instead, the culprit is often found within other areas of the production line.
When it comes to troubleshooting and diagnosing a process problem, many technicians look to the centrifuge first — but this is a common mistake, as it’s not the most efficient or effective way to go about fixing your problem.
