The CINC Industries annular centrifuge is superior to both gravity and other centrifugal separators currently used in industry.  It starts with a simple design that is easy to operate and maintain.  The result is an effective and dependable unit with low operating and maintenance costs. 

Upon start-up, equilibrium is quickly achieved.  The design is tolerant of ratio changes in the incoming phase ratios making it better suited to the varied conditions encountered in process applications.  Even changes in incoming flow do not upset the separation.  The turndown capability makes the unit ideal for both batch and continuous processing.

Cleaning the unit is a simple task using the internal CIP (clean in place) system.   This system does not require disassembly and cleans the unit with minimal downtime.

 

 

Processes requiring washing (or neutralization) as well as separation can be performed in one step utilizing the CINC liquid-liquid centrifugal contactors.

Good mixing is very important to ensure optimal mass transfer and to minimize solvent or water usage. In washing procedures where kinetics are not an issue, utlilization of the low mix bottom plate will provide sufficient mixing while minimizing fluid shearing.

Better process control, low retained fluid volume during processing, and reduced plant space usage are realized when using these devices in place of traditional tanks, mixer settlers, and extraction columns.

The CINC Industries Liquid-liquid centrifuges are valuable separation devices because of their small size and the rapid, yet efficient operation. However, they become even more valuable when employed as liquid-liquid contactors. The ability of a centrifuge to thoroughly mix two phases in the annular zone prior to separation in the rotor broadens its scope.

The CINC annular contactor has two inlet ports for introduction of solvents and washing solutions, making it an excellent device for reaction applications where the reaction has rapid kenetics. Efficient two phase mixing is achieved in the annulus between the spinning rotor and the fixed housing.

Mixing and disengaging times range from 10 to 30 seconds each, depending on the feed rate to the unit and unit size. Reagent volumes required for a specific process are much less than comparably scaled reactions performed in tanks or other vessels.

Rapid mixing and separation can enhance product recovery and quality This is especially true in processes where product degradation occurs under separation conditions due to prolonged contact with either pH extreme solutions or reagents that continue to react with the product.
