Liquid enters the unit tangentially creating a centrifugal flow, which is accelerated by a special top inlet construction. The tangential inlet and the special construction in the top dome of the separator gives an optimal centrifugal action, which is required to achieve efficient and continuous separation.
Centrifugal force moves particles to the sides of the separator chamber. Solids slowly drop along the sides to the quiet collection chamber. Cleaned liquid is drawn up through the vortex and leaves the separator by the top outlet. Solids are either periodically or continuously purged from the collection chamber.
