If a centrifuge works in theory, why make it bulletproof?

Chemical manufacturing can push the limits of even the most advanced materials. For one producer in the Netherlands, not even high-grade titanium could resist the corrosion caused by rising temperatures and highly concentrated hydrochloric acid in their decanter centrifuge.

Our solution was to develop an entirely new corrosion-proof casing in Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic. The solution was not only cost-efficient, but was proven at a firing range to withstand projectiles at more than six times the speed of any potential part coming from the centrifuge.

The result was an innovative new material application, along with 100 hours of reduced annual downtime.
