De Laval Issues Comprehensive Brochure On Centrifugal Separators

The De Laval Separator Company has issued a new brochure containing comprehensive information on centrifugal separators.

Entitled "Centrifugal Separation: a Science and an Art," the brochure's release is part of a yearlong program commemorating the hundredth anniversary of the centrifugal separator.

The brochure is extremely informative for both technical and nontechnical readers. Background information is provided by means of a number of charts, mathematical side-bars, and cutaway drawings.

The brochure begins with the history of centrifugal separation, starting with the 1878 patent issued to Gustaf De Laval. A following section discusses the many applications for centrifuges.

Another segment of the brochure brochure discusses the theory of separation and several ways to achieve it, with technical side-bar.

The final section of the brochure describes the main types of centrifuges available for industrial applications today — solidsretaining, solids-ejecting, solidsdischarging ("nozzle"), decanter, pusher, basket, peeler, and laboratory centrifuges. Each is illustrated with one or more cutaway diagrams. This section also includes a description of the Centennial Series™ separator, a new, high-gravity design recently introduced to the U.S. market by De Laval.

At the end of the brochure, actual installations on a ship are illustrated.

Copies of the brochure, SA 1754, are available from David Closs, The De Laval Separator Company, Marketing Services Department, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
