New peeler centrifuge with patented features

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Bluetector is this company’s new generation of horizontal peeler centrifuges. Features of the new brand include an optimized and patented housing shape (photo), which permits the efficient drainage of filtrate through the rear wall without any additional guidance for the liquid. A slidable machine cover reduces noise emissions and contamination of the technical area, providing quick and easy access. The Bluetector is equipped with only electric drives — also in hazardous areas up to ATEX zone 1 — ensuring excellent cleanliness without hydraulic oil and belt abrasion. The intelligent drive concept minimizes friction losses and enables the use of an optimized electric motor, without a belt drive. This means shorter batch times, lower energy consumption and lower operating costs, says the company. The new peeler allows low-shear and gentle product discharge and protects the discharge chute from contamination. — Heinkel Process Technology GmbH, Besigheim, Germany
