Chip centrifuges

Areas of application

For automatically de-oiling short metal chips.



Industrial centrifuges of different designs are used: 

  • For batch operation, with removable insertion vessel,
  • for continuous operation, with rotating drum or hydraulically driven lifting base.


The control system allows for individual adjustment of spin and batch times and thus of chip throughput and degree of de-oiling.


The chips are fed by a conveyor from the top into the centrifuge and drop into a rotating drum, where they are accelerated and spread against the drum wall. The adhering cooling lubricant is spun off. The de-oiled chips are forced over the edge of the drum and drop down through the centrifuge jacket.


Recovery of cooling lubricant, increased revenues from chip disposal, fulfilment of statutory provisions governing chip disposal.
