About Us

Ethanol
  • Decanter centrifuges are used for continuous dewatering of spent grain and cellulosic ethanol slurries post-fermentation.
  • Decanter centrifuges offer a high degree of dry cake solids with low energy consumption when compared to other drying technologies. This increase value as an animal feed.
  • Reduced solids in the fermentation liquid enable higher concentrations to this increase value as an animal feed.
  • Reduced solids in the fermentation liquid enable higher concentrations to be produced by the evaporators that follow the separation process.
Biodiesel

ICC offers RECONDITIONED centrifuges for biodiesel applications. Our centrifuges are suitable for instantaneous and continuous separations in the biodiesel process. Centrifuges supplied by ICC are currently being used for:

  1. Pre-treatment of Feedstock including: Separation of gums (degumming), solids, water, and soap stock from un-refined vegetable oils, yellow grease, brown grease (trap grease) waste vegetable oil, animal fat, DAF fat recovery, etc.
  2. Glycerin Separation: Separation of glycerine from biodiesel to assist meeting ASTM specifications.
  3. Water-wash Separation: Separation of water from biodiesel to assist meeting ASTM specifications.
  4. Dry Wash Solids Separation: Separation of magnesium silicate or other solids from biodiesel.
Beer, Wine & Juice Clarification

Decanter and disk-stack centrifuges are used for separation of fine solids (yeast, pulp, grain, etc.) from beer, wine and fruit juices as part of the production process.Eliminates or reduces the need for filters and their recurring costs.

Drilling Mud
  • Decanter centrifuges are used for separation of solids from weighted and unweighted drilling mud, barite recovery, and separation of oil-based drilling mud from cuttings.
  • New and reconditioned centrifuges are available with quick delivery. * Hydraulic flow capacities up to 500 GPM+
Manure & Farm Wastewater Sludges
  • Dewatering of flushed dairy, swine, cattle, poultry or other animal manure waste, older lagoons sludges, or to dewater aerobic or anaerobic digester sludge.
  • Eliminates thousands of gallons of water applied to the fields. The manure separator solids dry cake at up to 31% dry material can still be aplied to the fields, if desired, without overloading fields with water creating runoff. No more worries about “saturated” fields.
  • Removes typically 70 – 85% of suspended solids in fresh flushed dairy or swine manure waste without chemical flocculant addition or DAF system (although better results are achievable as part of a DAF system). Test reports available. Lower or higher removal rates possible on request, via changes in feed rate, machine size or G force.
  • Verification report has been published verifying the suitability of the Triton Separator for removing suspended solids from fresh flushed swine manure waste. ONLY manure separation device to date to be NSF verified.
  • Wide range of manure slurry feed rates, feed solids concentrations and feed materials can be accepted. Minor coarse prescreening recommended, only, for large debris such as rocks, large sand particles, and misc. debris.
  • NITROGEN – PHOSPHORUS: Approximately 25% of Nitrogen and 50% of phosphorus are removed when at least 70% of the suspended manure solids are separated. Results are much better when chemical flocculants or a DAF system is used incorporating centrifuge technology.
  • Great flexibility with process requirements for solids discharge. Can dewater fresh flushed swine manure solids to about 30% dry solids or thicken to about 5% – 10% per process requirements. Any level between 5 – 30% can be obtained by easy adjustments.
  • No full time operator required for continuous operation. Easy to use.
  • No filter media to blind. No screens or filter cloths to replace.
  • All stainless steel contact parts make the machine resistant to corrosion. Pilot size machines available for short term rental and test trials. All pilot test data can be directly scaled up to production feed rates.
Fuel & Lube Oil Purification

Decanter, solid bowl basket, and disk-stack centrifuges are used for separation of water and solids from industrial machining coolants as well as fuel, turbine and lube oils.

  • Both solids-retaining and self-cleaning disk stack models available. Sizes range from 1 – 300 GPM.
  • Purified coolants and lube oils can be recycled thereby reducing your plant’s expenses.
Trap Grease
  • Decanter and disk-stack centrifuges are used for separation of solids and water from trap greases (brown grease, yellow grease, etc.)
  • Separation of minor oil & water emulsions is possible.
  • No filter media, screens or clothes used.
  • No full time operator required.
  • Reduces polymer & lime consumption.
  • Decanter and disk-stack centrifuges are used for separation of solids and water from trap greases (brown grease, yellow grease, etc.)
  • Separation of minor oil & water emulsions is possible.
  • No filter media, screens or clothes used.
  • No full time operator required.
  • Reduces polymer & lime consumption as part of the water treatment process, thereby reducing production costs.
  • References are available.
  • Potential buyers are available for your purified brown grease & yellow grease regardless of FFA percentage.
Waste Sludge Processing

Decanter, solid bowl basket and disk-stack centrifuges are used to clarify, classify, thicken, dewater many waste sludges including those generated by the industrial, water treatment and municipal sewage treatment markets.

Vegetable Oil Refining

Decanter and disk-stack centrifuges are used routinely in the vegetable oil refining process, whether it is for use in biodiesel or food production. Applications include:

  1. Clarification of press oil. Continuous separation of meal solids, foots, and gums.
  2. Water Degumming. Separation of hydratable gums (phosphalipids) and other solubles.
  3. Acid Degumming. Separation of hydratable gums (phosphalipids) and other solubles.
Rendering
  • Decanter and disk stack centrifuges are used for separation of water and solids from rendered fats, blood, greases and oil in both edible and in-edible rendering.
  • Used for fat & oil recovery from a DAF wastewater system.
  • References available.
