The ALDEC G3 decanter centrifuge from Alfa Laval.

<p>The slim-line design of the ALDEC G3 from <a href="http://www.alfalaval.com/Pages/default.aspx">Alfa Laval</a> improves solids handling and helps maximize performance. The bowl incorporates specially developed power plates which harness and exploit the energy in the centrate discharge to contribute to the bowl rotation and reduce overall power requirements.</p> <p>Separation takes place along the entire length of the cylindrical part of the bowl. A dam between the baffle disk and the bowl wall enhances the hydraulic effect and the scrolling of solids through the bowl. As a result, only the driest fraction of the sludge cake passes from the bowl into the casing through the 360&deg; solids discharge openings. Clarified liquid leaves the bowl by flowing over adjustable plate dams into the casing.</p> <p>Features of the ALDEC G3 decanter centrifuge include a steep cone angle and a progressive pitch conveyor design which, combined with the unique baffle disk design, delivers improved performance. A strain gauge torque measurement provides an accurate, instantaneous torque reading which helps improve the process performance of the decanter. The ALDEC G3 can be supplied in a range of sizes designed to handle a wide variety of flow rates and can be tailored to meet specific sludge requirements.<br /> &nbsp;</p>
