Equipment Upgrades Decanters

Decanter upgradeAlfa Laval offers upgrades for decanters used in all types of processes. These upgrades cut costs and reduce impact on the environment.

Backdrive upgrade

Generally delivers power savings of between 15 and 20 per cent, reduces maintenance costs and optimizes decanter control. In addition, the backdrive upgrade reduces noise levels, speeds response to feed changes, cuts maintenance costs and may produce a drier sludge cake.

Conveyor upgrade

Involves upgrading conveyor wear protection parts, such as replaceable feed zone wear liners to minimize maintenance and liner replacement. This upgrade is available for Alfa Laval and Alfa Laval Sharples centrifuges that are less than 20 years old.

Power plate upgrade

Decreases energy consumption by between 10 and 25 per cent, depending on the size of your decanter. The plate captures some of the liquid discharge velocity and transfers it in the opposite direction of the bowl rotation. This reduces the total effluent velocity, thereby reducing overall energy consumption.
