Chamber bowl separators are solid-bowl centrifuges with annular inserts (chambers). They are used for clarification, i.e. the separation of solids from suspensions. The suspension flows through the individual chambers from the inside to the outside, whereby the solids deposit in the chambers. The clarified liquid discharges under gravity over an overflow weir (regulating ring) or is discharged under pressure by means of a centripetal pump.
The machines must be shut down to empty chamber bowl separators; the separated solids are removed manually.
Application criteria for chamber bowl separators are:
