An effective way of separating metal chips from cooling liquid.
Accustrip’s Chips Centrifuge separates metal chips that occur during metal cutting processes from coolant in a fully-automatic process. The wet chips / sludge fall over the infeed hopper into the drum of the lifting bottom centrifuge. At this point the chips meet the rotating lifting bottom and are pressed against the drum wall under high centrifugal forces. The hydraulically activated lifting bottom moves the chips and/or the sludge upwards to the slot sieve where the liquids are separated from the chips. After a few lifting cycles the dried chips are carried over the edge of drum and leaves the centrifuge and goes into the container or discharge conveyor. The centrifuged liquid can be returned to the production or pumped back for further treatment.
