How a Pusher Centrifuge Works
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.
