Centrifuge :
The ‘PRAGATI’ Centrifuge are elegantly designed with robust construction and are ideal machines for extraction of water / liquid in Chemical, Textile, Oil and Sugar Industries. The slurry or the material  to be filtered is placed in the basket, whose side is perforated. If the solid in the slurry is smaller than the perforation, a filter cloth or filter-bag has to be fitted inside the basket, before charging it. When the machine is started, the  basket starts rotating & with the centrifugal force, the liquid pulls-out leaving the solid material inside the basket. The machine has central rotating basket made of  M.S. / SS or M.S. lined with any corrosion resisting material such as rubber  (Natural rubber or butyl rubber.) The basket has ample number of holes for speedy extraction of mother liquor and is DYNAMICALLY BALANCED. The outer shell is fabricated M.S. / S.S. or MS lined with anti corrosion  material such as natural of butyl rubbers and is suspended on robustly built C. I. pendulum with suspension bolt and spring and spherical bearings. C. I. Bearing housing supports the special alloy-steel shaft. The steel shaft is made especially for resisting stresses caused by centrifugal forces resulting from any uneven distribution of the charge in the basket. The main-base is fabricated out of Mild Steel with heavy bottom plate. Its heavy weight helps the machine to gain rigidity and strength to resist vibration effectively. Ferodo-lined breaks are sued to give effective breaking. The power supply is automatically disconnected when breaks are applied. The drive consists of a 1440 R.P.M. / 3 phase, 415-volts, T.E.F.C. Motor and  the power is smoothly transmitted through the motor clutch pulley fitted on the motor shaft to the basket by means of ‘V’ belts.
