Scott Equipment Company has designed a new centrifugal separator that takes the place of cyclones and baghouses. It is not only extremely efficient in separating 99.971% of the particulate from the air, but it will handle high fat products as well. Scott has a patent application on this machine and we are confident of its unique design. The Scott Particulate Capture Unit (PCU) has been thoroughly tested and in the field in operation since 2000.
Originally designed to handle fine, hot, oily product coming off coolers and dryers in the rendering industry, Scott Equipment has discovered that the Particulate Capture Unit works so well that it is applicable in almost all applications. Hot, fine, oily product with 10% - 12% fat will not work effectively in a cyclone or a baghouse. In a drying operation, the PCU will work better than a baghouse and handle very hot air in excess of 300°F without danger of baghouse fires or the oil residue that make baghouses inoperable on high fat product making it ideal for food waste separation.
When considering all the advantages of the Scott PCU over cyclones and baghouses, it is very evident that this new technology will revolutionize the solid waste separation process.Features:
The economic results of cooling your rendered meal with the Scott Cooler and our centrifugal separator prove that it is a sound investment with very quick payback and many other benefits.
Scott's centrifugal separator replaces the cyclone or a baghouse with its unprecedented ability to separate the hot air from the fine oily product that is in the air stream. The air flows from the separator through a classifier plate to a blender section where water can be added to capture any fine particulate that still may be in the air stream.
The water with the particulate in it is now pumped back to the cooler. The water will be approximately four parts water and one part solid. This closed loop system eliminates virtually all air contamination and product loss in the air stream, as well as reduces odor.
