Indianapolis, IN-- Midwest Engineered Products Corp. (http://www.separator.com) has released an
all-new centrifuge design called CentraSep™. The design combines a revolutionary
bowl/blade clutch with a single ac motor and ac motor drive. The system
automatically removes sub-micron-to-one-half-inch particles and fines from
virtually any coolant or lubricant at a processing rate ranging from 25 to 135
gpm (gallons per minute).
With patents pending on the unique clutch and scraper design,
Midwest credits new electrical control for making the CentraSep a reality.
"Accelerating the bowl and blade very rapidly for the processing cycle, bringing
the loaded bowl to a controlled stop, and turning the bowl against the scraper
blades require high breakaway torque and extremely precise motor control", says
Jeff Beattey. "In this design, the electrical and mechanical components are
fused and inseparable."
