Tips for Choosing Your New Interfil Centrifuge.

The use of a centrifuge is highly critical to industries. Centrifugal forces drive the filtration and separation of some industrial materials. As a result, crude oil can be refined and wastewater purified.

If you are an industrial firm looking to replace your old centrifuge or buy a new one, an Interfil centrifuge is precisely what you need.

At Interfil Australia, we design and manufacture all our oil centrifuges. With detailed studies into design and technology, our products and processes are well backed with research.

Here are a few tips for you as you choose your interfil centrifuge.

The type of centrifuge you select is dependent on your filtration needs.

Do you need to filter oil or wastewater? The answer to this question will determine which centrifuge is most appropriate for you.

At Interfil, our three company made centrifuges are used for either wastewater purification or oil purification.

1. Oil Purification.

Our two outsourced Dieselcraft centrifuges are majorly used in the filtration of oil. However, the OC50 has higher power with the ability to clean 7litres of oil per minute.

On the other hand, the OC 20 is as effective though smaller in size. It has the power to clean up to 3.5litres of oil per minute. Dieselcraft centrifuges clean up any oil-based substances, including biofuel, engine oil and even vegetable oil.

2. Wastewater Purification.

The interfil-made centrifuges can be used in the filtration of wastewater. Wastewater centrifuges separate wastewater from solidified waste particles. This enables the water and waste to either be recycled or disposed appropriately.

Interfil centrifuges also vary according to the g forces and power capacity. In addition, some centrifuges have added options of automated function and continuous running.

How do you want your cleaning done?

Interfil centrifuges require regular cleaning. This is because as the separation process takes place within the machine, tiny particles get cast aside.

The accumulation of particles at the corners of the filtration bowl forms a thick layer with time. The debris eventually affects the functionality of the oil centrifuge or wastewater purifier.

Furthermore, these small particles can slowly return to the purified product compromising the process. It’s, therefore, necessary to remove waste particles regularly to optimize the separation function.

The type of disposal system depends on the volume of your mixture, the kind of mixture and how streamlined you want your system to be. For example, automated self-cleaners are advised for large industrial purification due to the sheer volumes involved. Moreover, an automated system will save you money if your processing plant accrues high opportunity costs from downtime. The only downside is the system comes at an extra cost.

Dieselcraft oil centrifuges don’t require too much cleaning as they are used in oil-water purification.  The oil pumps out from the top while the water is released at the bottom of the centrifuge. The system reduces the need for a self-cleaning system.

What else is attached to your centrifuge?

Centrifuges work in conjunction with other machines. For example, you’ll often find that one part is attached to a washer for the raw material. The other end is the purifier, where the cleansing occurs.

Constant decontamination is necessary to prevent contaminants from both ends of the machine from mixing. Small loads with slow processing time may use a manual IC-45M. The system allows you to clean out the centrifuge without much downtime.  Median processing makes use of the IC-45A, which has semi-automated cleaning properties. The IC-45-AV has fully automated self-cleaning and is used for large processors. Select the most appropriate oil centrifuge for your needs today.
