The Broadbent SPVH High Grade Continuous Centrifugal is designed to process high-grade sugar massecuites for continuous performance with batch results.

Developed from innovative technology of NQEA and partners in the Australian sugar industry, our High Grade Continuous Centrifugal design now offers a realistic alternative to Batch Centrifugals on specific products.

Key Features

  • Crystal protection equipment to reduce crystal damage to indiscernible levels
  • Central feed and distribution cone incorporating steam re-heating
  • Primary and secondary separation area in dual angle basket
  • High open area working screens permit constant high throughputs of massecuite
  • Wash facilities allowing the precise application of wash water
  • Very low energy consumption
  • Three point external suspension using steel spring isolators
  • Grease lubricated bearing configuration provides very long bearing life
  • High level of automation, e.g. feed valve, wash valve, steam, etc.
  • Options include stainless steel contact parts, liquid discharge offering part dissolving facility and high and low purity liquor separation within the casing.

Typical use. 

For massecuites with a large crystal size (MA) and a small variation is size (CV) then high grade continuous centrifugals offer a viable alternative to batch centrifugals in the following applications :

  • Raw sugar production (inc VHP).
  • Refinery affination.
  • Refined white sugar.

It is important to review the massecuite MA/CV and the down stream dryer capacity when considering high grade continuous centrifugals.
