Ideal Centrifuge for Harvesting Algae
Separate massive amounts of solids and liquids with ease
The Raw Power Centrifuges have been a mainstay of the waste oil cleaning community for years. We’ve established ourselves as the leader with quality, delivery time and service. We are pleased to say that our centrifuges have also been widely adopted by the algae community. High School Science Clubs, University Labs and Large R&D Firms have found our centrifuges to be affordable and effective for harvesting algae mass from water. Smaller school labs are purchasing the Extreme Centrifuge, while universities and Labs have been purchasing our Beast Centrifuge.
While the solid bowl centrifuges have been working excellent at harvesting small batches, we felt that we could address the needs of algae harvesting more specifically with a perforated basket centrifuge. The centrifuges work very much like our solid bowl centrifuges except the bowl is perforated with hundreds of holes and a filter bag is placed inside as a liner. The feedstock is fed into the bowl /filter bag and the liquid passes through leaving the solids trapped in the filter bag for easy removal.
These are batch processors, meaning you add a batch of feedstock to the bowl and run it until you have reached the desired dryness of the cake. The bag with the cake is then removed and a new bag is replaced for the next batch. The bags can be re-used unless damaged.
We also have access to peeler centrifuges for continuous operation. The whole batch process is automated and solids are scraped from the walls and ejected out of the lid while the unit runs controlled by PLC. You can contact us for quote on these, prices start around 50K USD.
The mixture is fed into the drum/bowl from the top. Under the action of the centrifugal force, the liquid passes through the filter medium and the discharged out of the port on the bottom. The solid-phase material is retained inside the filter bag. After the machine is stopped, the dry, solid material is harvested out the top by removing the filter media.
Filter Media: Nylon Mesh Filter Bags – Easy change out between batches. Each centrifuge will come with (1) bag of your choice: 5, 10, 25 and 50micron. If you have custom requirements: we can make these bags from other materials or special pore sizing upon request. Filter bags are durable and are meant to be re-used over and over.
Centrifuge: Centrifuge bowl and housing is made of 304 Stainless Steel. (Other materials available for custom order). Frame is Cast Iron.
Motor: 3PH, 230V/440V Baldor Motor.
*Centrifuges completely customizable. We can tailor these to meet your specific requirements
