What is a centrifugal separator?

Centrifugal separator machines use gravity and mechanical means to separate compounds. Centrifugal separators can separate:

  • Liquid-liquid mixtures
  • Solid-liquid suspensions
  • Gas/liquid-solid mixtures
  • Other particles by specific gravity

Centrifugal separator machines feature an inlet, outlet, and separator. The liquid-solid, solid-liquid, or gas-solid mixture is pumped into the separator. The separator creates a spinning vortex, which filters solids from liquids.

The separated solids collect at the bottom of the separator and discarded. High-density liquid, such as water, flows out of the separator. Low-density components, like oil, remains inside the centrifugal separation machine.

Podbielniak® Contactor (POD®)

B&P’s Podbielniak® Contactor (POD®) is a horizontal axis liquid-liquid centrifugal extractor that processes liquids for accelerated solvent extraction. The two main functions of this machine are liquid-liquid separation and the liquid-liquid extraction process through counter-current flow.

B&P’s Podbielniak® Contactor (POD®):

  • Reliable: POD® has been in service for more than 60 years
  • Runs smoothly: Uses a dual bearing lubrication system - one for normal operation, one for flush cleaning
  • Durable: Lower operating rpm means rotating parts last longer
  • Easy to clean: Rotor elements use Asco tubes and Ferralium alloy liners
  • Sturdily construction: Made of 316 stainless steel. Non-contact parts and attachments in 304 stainless steel and chrome

Pusher Centrifuge

B&P Littleford's Pusher Centrifuges (liquid-solid separation centrifuges) relentlessly separate coarse solids from free-draining crystalline slurries in the most extreme conditions. The impressive reliability record for Pusher Centrifuges is grounded in its sound design, precise engineering, and top-grade construction.

Pusher Centrifuges are developed and manufactured for standard products but can be customized for special or difficult solid separation applications.

B&P Littleford Pusher Centrifuges feature:

  • Single-piece reversible wedge-slot screen that efficiently separates solids and liquids
  • Screen supported by a centrifugally cast, milled-slot cage basket
  • Heavy-duty bearings carry the main hollow shaft, which drives the basket
  • Belt-driven hydraulic pump for energy efficiency, safety and reliability
  • Internal, self-contained hydraulic piston driving the pusher shaft
  • Rugged base provides rigid support for the entire rotating assembly
  • Cooling coils that maintain the hydraulic system temperature at optimum levels

Delivering the service you need

B&P Littleford designs, develops, and delivers a wide range of mixing, drying, compounding, reacting, extracting, and horizontal & vertical centrifugal separation equipment for many different manufacturing applications.

  • More than 100 years’ industry experience
