Study of a Novel Centrifugal Filtration Device

C.-C. Lin, R.-M. Wu*, Tamkang University, Taiwan

In this study, the centrifugal drum has a receiving space for accommodating the source fluid. The rotary filter is rotatably mounted in the center receiving space. By rotating at least one of the centrifugal drum and the rotary filter, the source fluid is driven to generate a vortex by a centrifugal force. Further, in a circumstance of providing a non-decreasing (i.e. increasing or stable) feeding amount of the source fluid, the centrifugal force drives the source fluid to form a heavy-phase fluid hitting the centrifugal drum and a light-phase fluid approaching the filter cartridge. In particular, a weight distribution of the particles of the source fluid is in a decreasing manner from the heavy-phase fluid to the light-phase fluid. Then, the light-phase fluid passes the filter cartridge and then reaches the filtrate-collecting space as a filtrate.
