Recovery and dewatering of fine materials remains an ongoing problem for the aggregates industries. Settlement in tanks and lagoons take time and space which is a luxury which is often not available to a modern fast acting aggregate recycling company.

MSE Hiller centrifuges can operate at speeds equating to between 2,000 and 4,000 x g which not only means that the separation takes place quickly but that the solids discharge is high in solids and the liquid clean and clear. MSE Hiller offer a range of mobile and permanent dewatering centrifuges which can process slurry feed flows from 1 to 150 m3/hr.

MSE Hiller offer mobile solutions which are compact, highly automated, trailer units which require minimal operator intervention with fast hook up times and with the use of modern mobile electrical generators means that they can be used almost anywhere.

In addition to trial and rental units, MSE Hiller can provide permanent installations which can also be retrofitted into existing sites to supplement existing dewatering capacity. MSE Hiller centrifuges carry state of the art wear protection to ensure high availability, extended service intervals, long machine lifetimes and low maintenance. 

Proven in the tunnelling and drilling industries the range of wear protection available include:-  Tungsten carbide hard facing, sintered tungsten carbide tiles, silicon carbide tiles, ceramic tiles, Bushes – ceramic, adiprene, sintered tungsten carbide and silicon carbide.

The HMR5000 controller is a control unit which has been specifically designed to control the modern centrifuge and takes control of the adjustment of the unit’s differential speed to maintain and optimise process performance and act to prevent blockage. The unit monitors the scroll speed and associated pressure from the scroll (which is directly proportional to the solids loading of the feed material coming into the machine) and varies accordingingly.

Sharp increases or variations of loadings in the waste material will thus lead to an increase in pressure inside the machine and the controller responds accordingly to maintain an optimum process performance and prevent blockage. Using the modern controller, the centrifuge can be totally automatic and requires the minimum amount of operator intervention and maintenance.
