Solid-liquid separation

Sustainable & effective dewatering using centrifuges

Solid-liquid separation concept. Swirling water, separation of salts from liquids

Our solutions are sustainable and tailor-made – for a wide range of applications in a wide variety of industries. For each project, we discuss the various process steps together with the customer and weigh up different process engineering alternatives against each other. This enables us to select the best concept for solid-liquid separation for each specific case and provide the appropriate centrifuge. Our aim is to find the optimum solution for your requirements.

For the best results in mechanical solid-liquid separation

SIEBTECHNIK TEMA centrifuges offer you state-of-the-art technology, a wide range of variants, application-specific special equipment, individual advice and reliable support.

Constantly increasing quality demands on raw materials and end products in the industry require modern technologies and more precise production processes. You want to achieve the best results – we support you!

More than 100 years of experience

With more than 100 years of experience, we are at home wherever precisely defined optimum results are required. Innovative technological developments and quality down to the last detail make the decisive difference.

Continuously operating centrifuges are the best technical and economical solution for mechanical liquid separation in almost all cases. They also dewater large quantities of solids to low final moisture levels with low space and energy requirements and in a short space of time.

An extensive portfolio for your task

The solution for your task: We already offer you sieve screw, pusher, sliding or vibratory centrifuges, Decanter centrifuge – solid bowl or hybrid machines for your individual requirements. From raw materials to refined end products, from very small quantities on a laboratory scale to bulk material handling, both filtering and sedimenting separation, from ultra-low temperature applications far below freezing point to several hundred degrees Celsius. SIEBTECHNIK centrifuges are successfully used in solid-liquid separation!

Our machines are valued worldwide for their extreme performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness. They are functional, durable and perform key functions in a wide range of industries.

Wear Protection

SIEBTECHNIK TEMA centrifuges are specially optimized for the respective separation task. When selecting materials, austenitic and ferritic stainless steels have proven themselves in centrifuge construction for applications subject to normal stresses.

For processes in which abrasive materials are processed, the centrifuges must be provided with effective wear protection. Starting with hard coal processing, we have been continuously developing wear protection systems since 1922.

Our centrifuges can be equipped with highly developed wear protection systems made of e.g. tungsten carbide, Stellite® or ceramic tiles, to name but a few. Rubber coatings or matrix coatings have also proven themselves in various applications.

If required, our engineers develop new and efficient solutions in coating, bonding and joining technology for our customers worldwide.

Centrifuge Components Materials

Centrifuge components must not only withstand high forces, but also process-related stresses such as corrosion, wear and high temperatures. Cost and availability of materials also play an important role. Our customers select the necessary product-contacting materials according to these very specific requirements.

Duplex and high-alloy stainless steels, Hastelloy® and titanium materials for a wide variety of processes and stresses are part of our daily business in centrifuge construction. Our quality management has developed very detailed and cost effective processes for design, manufacturing processes and component testing based on European guidelines.
