Our oil refining separators feature the GEA finetuner, a combination between a centripetal pump and a paring tube. It is characterized by a substantially improved efficiency factor compared to conventional centripetal pumps.
This is the ratio of the conversion of rotational energy into pressure. The effect is viscous media such as gums from super degumming installations can be discharged without difficulty. The adjustment of the finetuner diameter can be done by a manual hand wheel or by a pneumatic actuator from the control unit.
There are different drive concepts available for our oil refining separators: the conventional gear drive, flat-belt drive with power transmission from the torque-controlled motor to the bowl spindle vial single flat belt, direct drives with the motor directly mounted to the spindle and the newest evolution in drive technology from GEA: integrated direct drives. The integrated direct drive also transfers the motor power directly to the bowl but is integrated into the centrifuge’s housing.
Thus, our separators need up to 35 percent less space and operate much more quietly. The entire technical concept has been simplified and the number and variety of parts reduced. Bowl and motor can both be removed as a single entity reducing the downtime for maintenance considerably. . Our integrated direct drive concept maximizes the availability of our separators making sure your oil mill is working to capacity.
