Disc stack separators, also known as disc separators, are revolutionary devices designed for rapid solid-liquid separation through high-speed centrifugal force. This technology is employed across various industries to enhance efficiency and productivity. In this blog post, we will delve into the intricacies of disc stack separators, their common applications, separation methods, and the innovative solutions offered by GN Separation Equipment.


Understanding Disc Stack Separators:

At GN Separation Equipment, we specialize in manufacturing disc stack separators, also referred to as disc centrifuges or conical plate centrifuges. These vertical centrifuges are driven by powerful motors, rotating at high speeds to facilitate efficient separation processes. The heart of the disc separator lies in its bowl, housing a set of disc-shaped components nested within each other, commonly known as discs. These discs create small gaps that enable centrifugal sedimentation of materials.

Applications and Separation Methods:

Disc stack separators find widespread applications across diverse industries, owing to their versatility and effectiveness in solid-liquid separation. Some common industries utilizing disc separators include mineral processing, biodiesel production, beverage processing, dairy, latex production, starch processing, vegetable oil extraction, marine applications, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals.

The separation process involves the suspension or emulsion to be processed entering the disc separator through a feed pipe. As the suspension flows through the gaps between the discs, solid particles or droplets settle on the discs under centrifugal force, forming a sediment or liquid layer. The separated sludge accumulates in the inner bowl, while the separated liquid is discharged through the liquid outlet. For 3-phase disc separators, two centripetal pumps are employed to discharge two immiscible liquid phases with differing densities.
