Today’s busy manufacturing environment demands only the highest quality solutions when it comes to separation and classification. Ensuring your facility runs as efficiently as possible is the key priority for production and processing companies. At Unison, we work with a range of leading suppliers including SPX, Alfa Laval and GEA to ensure that we can provide you with the best separator technology for your process.
We are the official distributors for SPX Flow’s Seital Separation technologies. Designed and developed with the needs of the dairy, beverage, and industrial sectors in mind, SPX FLOW’s Seital Separation brand specialises in leading-edge separation and clarification technology. Our experienced engineering teams can advise you on the best application of this option, how to maximise operations, troubleshoot issues – and much more.
SPX have developed market-leading centrifugal separating equipment and cost-effective rotary strainers. Easy to install and maintain, they can be used for a range of applications from skimming milk and clarifying beer or wine, to the processing of chemicals, engineering fluids, and pharmaceutical products.
In traditional separator designs, the motor and centrifuge shaft are discrete units that must be connected to transfer energy from the motor to the shaft. Traditionally, this connection is indirect, in that an intervening mechanism makes the connection. In one common approach, a system of gears translates the motion from the rotor to the shaft. Another approach uses a drive belt to transmit energy. While both geared and belt-driven systems are highly reliable, having so many moving parts contributes to loss of energy during transmission.
Direct drive systems accomplish the transmission with fewer parts as the motor shaft becomes the centrifuge shaft. The motor mounts directly beneath the bowl and its single shaft extends directly into the bowl. Driving the centrifuge directly from the motor minimizes energy lost in the process, enables more compact designs and reduces the maintenance that gear-or belt-driven systems might require otherwise.
