Separators

Separators for the food and beverage industry

Areas of application of the KMA separators:

dairies * breweries * beverage industry * industry * others on request * plant planning and development

Drive:

According to feed capacity we differentiate separators with different drive types:

  • Direct drive
  • Helical gear drive
  • Belt drive

The separators are driven by a three-phase motor using a frequency converter.

Inlet and Outlet:

A sealed product inlet reduces the air contact of the product. The clarified liquid is discharge by paring discs under pressure (max. discharge pressure 5 bar). To avoid oxygen intake by the product, the separators are manufactured in semi-hermetic or hydro hermetic design.

Separator bowl:

The separators are mounted with a self-cleaning disc bowl, which guarantees a high separation performance and flow optimization in the inlet area. The construction of the separators makes possible a continuous operation i.e., uninterrupted processing of the product to be separated. The separated solids are periodically discharged automatically as required. The regular pre-planned cleaning of the separators in a chemical circulation cleaning (CIP cleaning) ensures the cleanliness of all parts in contact with the product. Thus, without time-consuming totally removed the need of manual cleaning.

Design KMA-Separators

Bowl:

  • Self-cleaning disc-type bowl with high separation capacity for full and partial discharge

Inlet and discharge:

  • Sealed inlet, discharge of the clarified liquid foam-free under pressure in semi-hermetic or hydro hermetic design

Housing parts:

  • Bowl cover and gear upper part are made of stainless steel, polished or shot blasted
  • Gear housing made of cast iron with stainless steel plate cladding or painted

Material:

  • All parts in contact with the product are made of high-grade stainless steels

Separator control for KMA-Separators

The operation / function of the separators are automated by a PLC control. For example, SIEMENS AG PLC and frequency converters from Danfoss are used for automation of all controllable devices. The complete separator control process can be visualized via the touch screen display and is fully customisable to suit every customer. Communication protocol between master control or any other control is possible and fully programmable.
