SPX FLOW Seital Separation Technology offers a wide range of self-cleaning separators for liquid/liquid/solid separation. This type of separator allows for the recovery of fine particles (0,5-500 µm), the efficient separation of a mixture into its two phases and the contemporary clarification of both by means of a very high peripheral centrifugal field (G-force).
Fat separation from whey is similar to fat separation from milk. Whey contains small amounts of fat, usually between 0.15 and 0.70 %. Fat separation is easier than from milk as long as the quantity of curd fines is low. The processing temperature is usually between 30 and 40°C. (86 and 104°F) A combination of discharges is usually performed in order to maintain high separation efficiency. Skimming efficiencies between 0.03 and 0.04% residual fat content can be achieved.
