PneumaticScaleAngelus’ unique CARR P6 Powerfuge System provides continuous-flow two-phase separation of solids and liquids at rates up to 60 liters/hour.
The P6 is designed for ease of operation, with sealed feed and drain lines allowing for aerosol-free operation. Similarly, no special tools are required to disassemble the system. Integrated turnkey systems incorporating feed delivery options, CIP and SIP skids, temperature control, and closed-loop centrate pumping under vacuum are available.
The P6 system meets cGMP requirements and has been validated to meet chemical and pharmaceutical industry protocols. The P6 is engineered to optimize ease of operation while maximizing throughput; each step in the process can be readily automated so that time spent on routine maintenance can be minimized.
Using an innovative design, the feed is introduced through a stationary pipe and accelerated to full rotational speed before entering the titanium-alloy bowl. In this system, centrifugal forces as great as 20,000g permit separation of even sub-micron particles.
Compressed solids are periodically removed with a fully-automated scraping cycle. After the solids have been discharged, automated CIP/SIP cycles can be performed via the PLC-controlled operating sequence.
