Is your centrifuge currently driven by a fluid or friction clutch? While clutch-driven centrifuges used to be the standard, those days have come and gone. Now, direct drive systems are what everyone wants. They provide numerous benefits, which I’ll cover below.
When it comes to getting the most out of your centrifuge, a great place to start is by taking an honest look at your separation process. Centrifugal separation is complex, to say the least. Every process differs based on countless variables all working together.

Having a centrifuge is vital to many businesses. For instance, dairy companies across the country rely on a working machine to make the best milk products that consumers can find on a store shelf. Centrifuges can perform a whole gamut of operations and these machines are found in a wide range of industries.
Today, rather than talking about the general concept of a centrifuge and its accompanying technology, I'd like to take a chance to discuss their efficiency. In particular, I'll be taking a look at the milk production process.
The centrifugal separation of milk can be a tricky business if your machines aren't efficient. But how could they be more productive? We'll go over five ways to optimize your milk separator and kick your production into high gear.

No doubt about it, replacing your current centrifuge with a new machine is a large undertaking. Not only does it involve the capital investment of new equipment, it also typically involves reconfiguring feed lines and replacing your baseplate. And in case you're not familiar, replacing a centrifuge baseplate is a big job all on its own. It involves breaking the existing one out, pouring fresh concrete, and waiting for the curing process. And that all comes after you've worked out the details on the business end. Luckily, there's a way to skip this entire process while getting the equipment upgrade you need.
Remanufactured centrifuges have numerous distinct advantages over a refurbished or new one. For starters, a remanufactured centrifuge is less expensive than new and better than used. When you hear about used, refurbished, or reconditioned centrifuges, those are different from remanufactured. And the difference is in the details.
