Since its invention more than 130 years ago, the centrifugal separator has become an indispensable piece of equipment in the food and beverage industry. Today’s cutting-edge separation technology gives clear advantages in terms of product quality and safety, operational efficiency and production flexibility.

Major breakthrough in separator disc technology

Smaller nodes = HIGHER CAPACITY

The innovative polynode design has made it possible to increase the number of discs in the separator’s disc stack. This means that a separator equipped with polynode discs has a significantly higher capacity than its predecessors – it has become bigger on the inside!

A brief history of separation

The separator has been the workhorse of the dairy industry for well over a century. Our mini-documentary explores the technological development, from separation by gravity to today’s inspired-by-space machines.

The magic inside AirTight separators

Our design concept for separators, with its closed, hermetic system, eliminates the limitations of semi-open separators. The AirTight system means a process that is gentler on your liquid, and one that considerably reduces energy consumption.
