Alfa-Laval WHPX505 Separator is specifically used in marine applications as a high-speed centrifugal separator. Its primary purpose is to separate solid and liquid particles from fuel and lubricating oils, thus maintaining their quality and prolonging the engine’s lifespan.
Impressive technical specifications characterize the separator, including a maximum capacity of 25,000 LPH, a maximum bowl speed of 7,800 RPM, a design temperature of 100°C, and a maximum operating pressure of 6 bar. A 30 kW motor powers it, and it weighs 1,800 kg, constructed from high-quality materials such as stainless steel and bronze that resist corrosion and wear. The separator requires a 3-phase electrical supply of 50 or 60 Hz and 380-415/440-480 V.
Additionally, several components make up the Separator that work together to ensure efficient and reliable operation, including the bowl assembly, motor, gearbox, inlet and outlet connections, control panel, water seal assembly, solids discharge system, lubrication system, bearings, sensors, and seals and gaskets.
The separator generates a centrifugal force that separates solid and liquid particles from the oil, with the separated particles collected in a separate chamber for waste removal. The separator is user-friendly with easy-to-use controls and a simple interface.
Overall, the Alfa-Laval WHPX505 Separator is an essential component of marine engine systems, ensuring reliable and efficient operation while minimizing maintenance requirements and prolonging the engine’s lifespan.
