Used Decanter Centrifuge

With a used decanter centrifuge for industrial use solids are separated from liquids, or liquids with different densities are separated. Due to the high drum speed, the heavier parts are forced to the outside by the centrifugal force and discharged from the centrifuge.

This used Dewatering Technology comes mainly from municipal and industrial sludge dewatering. The used decanter centrifuge are in good used condition. Some of them have already been dismantled and stored. But often the used decanter centrifuges are still in operation and can be viewed at the customer site. Here you can find the following used decanter centrifuges:

  • Used industrial decanter
  • Dewatering Centrifuge Used
  • Used solid bowl centrifuge
  • Mobile decanter centrifuge used
  • Used wastewater centrifuge
  • Used dewatering centrifuge
  • Alfa laval decanter centrifuge used
  • Westfalia decanter centrifuge used
  • Flottweg decanter used

Overview of Used Decanter Centrifuge

Decanter Centrifuge Designs

Decanters are horizontal screw centrifuges. With a Decanter Centrifuge solids are separated, especially when the medium has a very high solids content. Here we can find the following types:

1. Two Phase Decanter Centrifuges

A Two-Phase-Decanter Centrifuge is a continuously operating horizontal centrifuge. It consists of a rapidly rotating drum and an inner slower rotating screw. Here the solids are steadily discharged with the internal screw from the centrifuge drum.

2. Three-Phase Decanter Centrifuges

With a Three-Phase Decanter Centrifuge, also called Tricanter, a continuous three-phase separation is possible. This means the separation of two liquids having different densities and a solid phase.


Separators are a kind of high performance centrifuge, that separate heavy and light liquids, as well as for clarifying or separating finest particles from liquids. Here, the following types can be distinguished:

  • Solid-Wall Separators: To separate liquids
  • Plate Separators: For clarifying and separating processes
  • Nozzle Separators: To concentration and washing of suspensions

Other types of Centrifuges

There are special forms of centrifuges, for specific applications, such as:

  • Pusher Centrifuges
  • Basket Centrifuges
  • Inverting Filter
  • Peeler Centrifuges
