Chamber bowl separators are solid-bowl centrifuges with annular inserts (chambers). They are used for clarification.
Chamber bowl separators, comprise a cylindrical bowl in which several nested concentric cylinders are installed in order to increase their equivalent separation surface area. The task of chamber bowl separators is the clarification (solid / liquid separation). i.e. the separation of solids from suspensions. The suspension flows through the individual chambers from the inside to the outside, whereby the solids deposit in the chambers. The clarified liquid discharges under gravity over an overflow weir (regulating ring) or is discharged under pressure by means of a centripetal pump.
Chamber bowl separators have to be shut down for cleaning (manual removing of the solids).
Chamber bowl separators are primarily used for clarifying liquids whereby the separated solids must be removed manually.
