High-performance centrifuges for the laboratory
For tests to laboratory standard and for the preparation of small quantities SIEBTECHNIK offers two different laboratory centrifuges.
The SIEBTECHNIK CENTRIFLEX centrifuge is a laboratory centrifuge designed for many different uses.
The CENTRIFLEX can be used to test the separability of suspensions in the centrifugal field. The choice of a type of centrifuge and the dimensional scaling of the centrifuge are possible on the basis of such laboratory tests. With our laboratory centrifuge filtering and sedimenting centrifuges as well as continuous centrifuges or centrifuges with batchwise operating mode can be simulated by appropriate tests. For this suitable beaker inserts are used in the centrifuge.
The CENTRIFLEX can also be used for many kinds of preparatory work.
When fitted with the appropriate accessories, they can be used for filtration, washing, clarification, for the continuous separation of two liquids and for the preparation of emulsions.
The CENTRILAB was developed on the basis of the CENTRIFLEX laboratory centrifuge and is used solely for testing the separability of suspensions in the centrifugal field. The choice of a type of centrifuge and the dimensional scaling of the centrifuge are possible on the basis of such laboratory tests. Practically every type of centrifugal separating apparatus can be tested and/or simulated very easily with the CENTRILAB, using a small quantity of material.
Unlike the CENTRIFLEX the CENTRILAB stands out for its considerably shorter starting and stopping times. It is possible to accelerate the product to be tested to maximum g force in under a second. In this way continuous centrifuges, which as a rule are operated with short material dwell times, can be very precisely copied in the test or in simulation.
