Whether you are working toward maximizing product recovery or looking to get the most out of your “zero-discharge” closed-loop system, Elgin’s field proven solid / liquid separation and dewatering centrifuges are a perfect choice. With over 550 units installed worldwide, Elgin introduces its newest member to its line-up of high-quality, centrifuges, the ESS-1655HD.
Power and Performance
Elgin’s ESS-1655HD is fitted with a NEMA premium, continuous duty, energy-efficient, poly-chain driven, 60 hp main drive and a direct-coupled 20 hp back-drive. All ESS-1655HD explosion proof motors used by Elgin are suitable for applications requiring UL or CSA certification for hazardous locations.
The 60 hp main drive can operate the centrifuge up to 3,400 rpm, therefore generating more than 2,300 G’s of force. Using an inclined motor mount, motor and belt maintenance is made easy by the adjustment of two jack screws. No additional motor mounts, brackets or tensioning devices are required.
By utilizing a carbon fiber poly-chain, no belt re-tensioning is required after installation is complete. The carbon fiber tensile cords are length-stable and can withstand shock loads that frequently lead to belt failure. The poly-chain’s polyurethane body withstands harsh environments and the nylon fabric teeth resist wear. More importantly, Elgin’s carbon fiber poly-chain will not require quarterly replacement and can last years before a new belt is required. Since the poly-chain operates with a positive tooth/groove engagement, there is no start-up or operational slippage. By eliminating the potential for slippage, the use of a poly-chain actually reduces the energy consumption consumed.
The 20 hp back-drive coupled with a 56:1 planetary gearbox generates an industry-leading speed differential, which ultimately translates into a larger performance window. This performance window is what grants the ESS-1655HD maximum flexibility when managing the cut-point and the moisture content of discharged solids.
