In our day-to-day and professional lives, receiving maintenance is a pretty common occurrence. Automobiles and homes require routine maintenance. All types of machinery, heavy equipment, and tools also require their own maintenance in order to keep them operational. But everything runs on its own maintenance schedule and requires different tools and resources.

3 Ways to Improve Your Automated Centrifuge Technology

In today’s world, if you run separators, you run with automation. Sure, you might have components of your process that are still manual, but overall, automation is what’s responsible for the performance of each centrifuge. Feedback from pressure transmitters, temperature meters, and back pressure valves communicate with a control system, telling the automation how to adjust processes in real-time. That, in effect, is what controls the machines.

How to Balance a Centrifuge with Separators, Inc. [SlideShare]

An unbalanced centrifuge is a recipe for disaster. Centrifuges spin at very high speeds, and they do so for hours on end. Some facilities run their centrifuges 24/7, only pausing for CIP procedures and the occasional service visit. When a bowl starts to get off balance – and they always do at some point or another – they continue to get more and more off balance as time goes on.

And the further from balanced an industrial centrifuge becomes, the more inefficient and dangerous it becomes. So, what do you do? You get your bowl balanced.

All too often, issues with a centrifuge’s separation process aren’t related to the centrifuge itself, but instead with the components around it. When it comes to troubleshooting and diagnosing a process problem, some technicians look to the machine first, but this is not the most efficient or effective way to go about things.

Before we dive into the role air pressure plays in centrifuge performance, it’s important to point out that air pressure is just one factor out of many. In other words, air pressure is important, but it’s not the whole picture. With that being said, here’s a look at how air pressure impacts centrifuge separators.

How Long Should Your Centrifuge Last?

By: Richard Schildwachter
Jul 23, 2018 11:14:00 AM

It’s pretty common for customers and clients to ask me how long their centrifuges should last, and the truth is, the answer depends on how well they’re maintained. The length of time a centrifuge remains operational is significantly impacted by whether or not it receives those major and minor services that are recommended by manufacturers (and in some instances required by insurance companies or industry guidelines).
