Continuous centrifugal extractor with a horizontal axis auger is able to separate a solid phase from one or two liquid phases.

Since 1982 Ghedini Srl has been alongside companies, supporting them in various production and operational processes: we sell, buy, rent, install, repair, test and maintain decanter centrifuges for the best national and international brands.

Decanter centrifuges are indispensable in industrial production processes for many sectors: from the processing and refining of cooking oils and vegetable fats to the extraction and purification of wine, must and sparkling wine; from the chemical and pharmaceutical industry to the ecological sector; from the separation of animal fats to the chemical recycling of polymers; from the processing of fruit juices and multiple vegetable drinks to that of algae and precious metals.

Solid particles that have a higher specific gravity than they do in their liquid phase go outwards forming a layer that will be extracted by the augers.

Unlike separators, decanter centrifuges can be used for processing substances with a high content of solid parts.

Here are the main types of decanters:

  • Two-phase decanter: this type of decanter is used to extract the solid particles suspended in a liquid
  • Three-phase decanter: this type of decanter is used to separate the solid particles from a light liquid and a heavier liquid
