These continuous filters use centrifugal force in a similar way as in a drum centrifuge. But in this case the wall of the centrifuge is a filter media that allows the filtrate to pass through while leaving the solids on the surface. These solids can be washed and then removed continuously by a unloader knife and discharged out the bottom of the device.
Menardi is able to supply centrifuge cloths to retro-fit all standard designs of centrifuge filters. All cloths are laser cut from computerized pattern designs to ensure precision and repeatability.
A wide selection of filter media is available to meet the required performance requirements:
- Fiber types - polypropylene, polyester, nylon, PTFE

Menardi offers polypropylene and polyester centrifuge cloths in many styles to fit all OEM designs. Options include cord and Velcro® ends and various backing cloth choices.
