Phosphatation Scum De-sweetening
Decanter centrifuges greatly reduce the problem of de-sweetening phosphatation scums in refinery processes. Broadbent decanter centrifuges efficiently remove the solids from the scums ex the phosphatation clarifiers and return the sugar liquors to the refinery process.
Typically, the process needs a small, high speed decanter operating at around 20 m3/hr removing 95%+ of the suspended solids.
