The multinacional firm BASF has trusted Riera nadeu for an ambitious project with 4 new centrifuges RINA 700 F 100 models.

In 2012, in the largest chemical complex of Europe, where all kinds of chemicals are being manufactured, Riera Nadeu was awarded with the supply of a high-performance centrifuge RINA 700 Serie for the production of vitamin.

After collaborating for more than 6 years, Riera Nadeu was entrusted again for the supply of 4 new units integrating significant improvements in order to meet some very specific requirements; the machines will work in a classified area and the product will be fed at -30ºC. We then developed a special horizontal peeler centrifuge working at high speed and with wetted parts made of AISI-316L. Following are the main features we can highlight:

_Plug & play concept

_CE-ATEX certification

_Opening/closing and locking system of the casing actuated with hydraulic cylinders

_Double o-ring seal on the casing flange

_Thermal insulated casing to protect the process from the difference of temperature and prevent the formation of condensation and ice

_Single effect scraper with two different speeds for entry and for withdrawal to minimize the time of discharge

_Solid extraction with discharge screw conveyor

_Sampling system at the solid outlet to recover some centrifuged wet powder without stopping the production

_CIP (Clean In Place system)

The machines have been supplied in 2 stages + 1. Initially, in 2013, a first model was developed on which new solutions have been incorporated. Since then; 4 more units have been supplied in 2 delivery times. With the Commissioning and Start-up phase of the last units a third stage is planned to operate all the improvements made from the first unit.
