Centrifuge MC

The Sormac MC-44 centrifuge removes excess water from leafy vegetables and other cut and uncut produce. The basket with the produce is placed in the machine. When the lid is closed, the machine will start running at a pre-set speed of, e.g., 700 rpm. The lid is locked while the centrifuge is working.

When the centrifuge has stopped, the lid is unlocked and opened automatically. The basket with the dewatered produce can then be removed from the machine. Users can set the speed and the cycle time by opening the control cabinet.

The MC-44/Vario centrifuge features a touchscreen for making these settings. The MC-44/Vario configuration enables users to choose from 100 different programs with different cycle times and speeds of between 350 and 1,000 rpm. It features a user-friendly touchscreen for this purpose.

There are also programs with a slow start and stop for delicate produce. Furthermore, programs with a ‘reversal function’ can also be chosen. The direction of rotation is then reversed during the process, so that the leaves are dewatered even more effectively. If desired, users can create programs of their own choice.

The machines have been built with the patented basket locking system ‘Basket Lock ®’. This system developed by Sormac prevents the baskets from coming loose from the basket holder; a common problem in basket centrifuges. This may cause the basket or machine to be damaged or – even worse – there is a possibility of plastic ending up in the product.
