FLOTTWEG TRICANTERS® enable three-phase separation with simultaneous separation of two immiscible liquids with different densities and one solid phase, provided that the solid phase is the heaviest phase.

The function of the FLOTTWEG TRICANTER® is similar to the one of the Decanter. The most important difference from a decanter is the separate discharge of the two liquid phases.

The FLOTTWEG TRICANTER® discharges the heavy liquid through an adjustable impeller under pressure and the light phase by gravity. The adjustable impeller allows adjusting the separation zone and degree of separation within the machine during operation. This optimizes the purity of the liquids and may possibly eliminate downstream equipment.
