The Model APD Centrifuge is suitable for a broad range of two-phase solid-liquid separation applications common to the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and related chemical process industries.
Transcending current centrifuge technology, the Model APD centrifuge achieves full-automatic operation in a hermetically sealed environment. The design incorporates a low shear design to enhance separation, and a discharge piston to achieve TOTAL solids recovery after separation. There are no scrapers, baffles, discs or discharge ports to impede solids discharge.
As a multi-purpose centrifuge, the APD is jacketed to permit thermal control, and to further broaden process flexibility, vacuum rated designs, solids receiving vessels, and CIP/SIP skids are available options.
