Nozzle separators are continuously operating disk centrifuges. They are built as centrifugal clarifiers and separators and are more solids-orientated than self-cleaning separators. When they are configured to function as clarifiers, they are called concentrators. They are used to thicken solids from suspensions.

As with disk separators with solid-wall bowl, the disk separators with self-cleaning bowl are equipped with a stack of conical disks to create a large equivalent clarification area within a relatively small bowl volume. These separators are likewise available as versions for clarification and separation.
Pusher centrifuges, also called horizontal basket centrifuges, possess filtration bowls equipped with metal screening sheets or slotted sieves. These systems also filter liquids in the centrifugal field and retain solids as filter cakes in the bowls. An oscillating pushing motion transports the cakes out of the bowls. Solids may also be washed with these systems.
