i recently aquired a simple centrafuge
Simple Centrifuge ...putting a centrifuge in every garage!
i was useing an acme juicer,for testing purposes,and to see if i could get away with it.
it has a 7 inch rotar and turns 3600 rpm's same as simple centrafuge
just had to plug the holes.
IT DID NOT WORK WELL.
and i could not figure out why,i had the feed tube,as close to the wall of oil as possable
and as far down in as possable
adding the oil in the bottom,and very close to the sides.
and very slowley,about 1/2 gallon an hour
ididnt put 2 and 2 toghther until i called simple centrifuge
so i called simple centrafuge,to ask if their machine would work better and why
since i had,im theary the same unit,with the juicer.
what they told me is,that any open face boawl design promotes splashinG
(OH THATS WHAT I WAS HEARING)
they went on to say the splashing,causes massive disruptions in the wall of oil against the sides,and makes dirty oil jump out,and dosent stay in the bowl long enoughf.
their design is a closed bowl design,look at the first 4 pictures on the link
it makes splashing in my opnion,very minimal,if at all
im not going to make crazy statements,or say it's the only game in town.
i used it today for the first real test run of 40 gallons of WMO
that came out of bigrigs,which is 15-40
i ran it about 15 gallons an hour the oil was only 80 deg
and when i was done i emptied the rotar and got about 1/4 of sludge out,all around the perimiterof the rotar.
the raw power CF spins twice the speed,but i feel the splashing affect is significant.
anyway thats my .02
