The new generation will complement the existing A-series for industrial, F-series for food, and D-series for environmental applications. The key advantage of the new generation is its concept of scalability that can be modified according to customers’ requirements. This allows maximum flexibility in adjusting standardized machines to meet individual customer challenges without the risks and costs associated with customized prototype solutions.
 
The large range of parameters it offers allows customers to choose capacities from small to large, temperatures from -80°C to +180°C, pH-values from 1 to 10, and pressures of up to 6 bar. The decanter centrifuges can be used for slurries or sludge in the feed – from thin solids concentrations to streams with a heavy solids load – and can process many different kinds of slurries – from food to abrasive minerals, from sticky to dusty, and from light- to heavy-density material. The new decanters are also suitable for a wide range of atmospheres, ranging from harmless to hazardous.
