A clogged separator is an expensive event, so monitoring feed lines and diverting excessive solids concentrations is worthwhile insurance which can become a valuable return on investment. Identifying high solids events also allows you to investigate what caused them and to discover process control improvements.
Monitoring centrate and concentrate lines allows you to improve separator performance. This in turn improves product consistency and prevents product being produced out of specification. It also reduces the need for operator intervention. Both of these help to get more product into the packaging and out to market.
For example, monitoring the centrate output can indicate when to discharge high solids outputs. In nozzle-style separators, sensors in the concentrate output provide feedback which can be used to control the input through the feed line for optimum performance.
