DDGS Dewatering

With the introduction of mandatory measures on the time limit of sewage companies, the management of DDGS in the brewing industry has become a top priority for many manufacturers. At present, the advantages and disadvantages of solid-liquid separation of wine granules play a very important role in the Cray treatment mode. Adopt backward methods such as natural sedimentation filtration and manual bag-making extrusion, which covers a large area, large labor, low efficiency, poor working environment, and difficult to stabilize quality. The application of the ZK DDGS dewatering centrifuge in the brewery will effectively solve this problem.

ZK DDGS Dewatering Centrifuge for Use in DDGS Separation Process

Corn, wood, rice, wheat starch, etc. are the most widely used raw materials in the alcohol industry. More and more alcohol producers after fermentation and distillation use a centrifuge to remove water, which solves the issues in large-scale conventional filtration equipment, ranging from large land occupation to high labor intensity, and high later-stage maintenance cost. At the same time, by virtue of high efficiency, stability and environmental protection, it provides guarantee for efficient dehydration, DDGS quality, and subsequent process energy conservation. When corn and cassava are used as raw materials, the high sand content in the acid solution is an important factor affecting the stability and service life of the decanter. The whole ZK ddgs dewatering decanter is equipped with high-performance wear-resistant protective materials to greatly extends the maintenance cycle and ensure annual normal running time.

Technical Characteristics of ZK DDGS Decanter
  1. The DDGS high efficiency centrifuge fully draws on the working principle of the lamella settler. To improve the clarity of the supernatant after centrifuge separation, a certain number of solid particles capturing plates (referred to as spiral plates) are added to the screw conveyor at the clarification section. When the solid suspended particles flow through the spiral ramp, part of them can be effectively attached to the spiral ramp and slide along it into the blades of the screw conveyor to realize continuous slag discharging. Compared with common centrifuges, it can increase 20~30% in solid recovery rate.
  2. The DDGS slurry produced with different raw materials through different processes has different degrees of corrosiveness, such as hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid used at the acid chemical section, amino acid or acetic acid produced by fermentation. Therefore, the decanter has some requirements on the selection of wear-resistant materials.
  3. The dehydration of solid particles relies mainly on strong centrifugal force, high-torque spin extrusion force (pushing torque), and ultra-long solid particle dehydration length. The centrifuge can generate centrifugal force exceeding 3000G, 30 ~ 50% higher than the screw pushing torque of common centrifuges. The screw pusher torque, and the drum dehydration length is 10 ~ 20% longer than that of common centrifuges.
  4. The ultra-high pushing torque requires a high-torque involute planetary gear differential as the foundation. The differential equipped on the ddgs dewatering centrifuge features high torque, high speed, low heat generation, and excellent heat dispersion, which ensure that the centrifuge can be used for a long time and stably.
