The company has introduced the T10-3AQ centrifuge system that removes solids such as iron phosphate, dirt and oil from parts washer baths. Producing a separation force of more than 1,100 gravities, the stainless steel components of the centrifuge can operate within a pH range of 2 to 12 and at temperatures up to 180°F. The unit features a removable liner that is said to be easily cleaned and designed to produce a dry solids cake. By removing the oil and solids from the washer, the bath stays cleaner and there may be a reduction in replacement bath chemicals and waste volumes, according to the company.
