Decanter centrifuges in the sweetener industries.
Broadbent design and manufacture a range of decanting centrifuges for use in the sweetener industries. Decanting centrifuges are continuous in operation and sizes are available to process flows from 20 - 100 cubic meters per hour (approx 100-500 US gals/min). Applications include :
Beet wash water clean-up.
In this application the decanter is used to remove suspended solids from the beet wash water prior to further downstream processing. Decanters are able to process clarifier underflow and produce a handlable solid for returning to the growers or other disposal. The use of decanters reduces or removes the need for open settling ponds and their associated odours.
Decanters can produce dryer solids than many solids removal techniques currently used in the sweetener industries. This lower moisture coupled with the ability to wash within the decanter can give both a dryer solid and greater sucrose recovery.

The dewatering of sludges and other effluent streams is a well established application for decanting centrifuges. Many separation requirements within the sweetener industries fall in this general category. Contact Broadbent to discuss your particular application.
