Advances in head design for large suspended batch centrifugals * [Full subscriber]

A presentation, entitled ‘An investigation of the vibration characteristics and unbalance tolerance of large (1500+) suspended batch fugals’, was made at a workshop at the 2012 ASSCT conference. The material presented was insightful and demonstrated the need for improvements in the design of these centrifugals and the supporting structure. Since the emergence of these issues some 10 years ago, the unbalance concerns identified in the presentation have been resolved in the larger Western States TITAN-Series batch centrifugals via a complete redesign of the head. An implied premise that larger centrifugals inherently have undue vibration has proven to be inaccurate. A…
