Flottweg SE


For more than 60 years in our German location, we have been developing and producing decanter centrifuges, separators, belt presses, and systems considered extremely powerful and reliable. In many industrial areas, they handle key functions in the clarification of liquids, separation of liquid mixtures, and concentrating and dewatering.

Flottweg is one of the worldwide leading solution providers in the field of mechanical separation technology. Our decanters, disc stack centrifuges and belt presses exclusively manufactured in Germany are the preconditions for high efficiency in production and outstanding quality of our customers’ end products.

In the petrochemical, chemical, pharmaceutical and the food industry but also in the field of mining as well as in the environmental area for the treatment of waste water or oil sludges – Flottweg’s premium products and systems work successfully everywhere.

In many industrial areas, they handle key functions in the clarification of liquids. Our Separators can be used in a wide range of applications. Due to their special design, disk stack centrifuges work at a higher rotation speed than other centrifuges such as decanters. Moreover, the disks included provide a large clarifying area.

An outstanding feature of Flottweg AC (automatic cleaning) Separators is the Soft Shot® discharge system. Compared to other systems, the Soft Shot® makes hardly any noise. The separated solids are ejected silently and in a material-friendly manner. This hydraulic system also offers a large number of options for adjustment to allow the machine to be adapted optimally to your process, increasing your product yields. Like our Flottweg Decanter Centrifuges, Flottweg Disk Stack Centrifuges are also developed and manufactured entirely at our production facility in Vilsbiburg, Germany.


Decanter Centrifuges

Flottweg has been building decanters since 1956. As a globally acknowledged vendor of individual solutions for mechanical separation technology, we have advanced the development of the decanter centrifuge over the course of the years and configured it for an extremely wide range of separation tasks. High quality, efficiency and durability are three arguments that can be advanced in favour of the Flottweg decanter.
Because of its simple basic design the decanter can be adaped to a wide range of separation tasks. Specific configurations such as the Tricanter® (3-phase centrifuge), Sorticanter® (decanter for plastic recycling) and Sedicanter® (decanter centrifuge for soft sediment) meet particular customer requirements.

Belt presses

The Flottweg belt press processes the raw materials quickly and with the highest level of quality. At the same time, it maximises yield and minimises the amount of work required for operation and maintenance. The Flottweg belt press is suitable for various applications in mechanical separation technology: Juice manufacture, Algae extract, herb extracts, starch, soya, dewatering of brewer's grains and coffee grounds.

Engineered Systems

Each process in the machanical separation technology is individual and the influencing factors vary widely.
As a result, an "off the peg" solution is usually impossible. Flottweg is your partner for individual solutions in mechanical separation technology. We possess the necessary technical expertise and experience to offer you the best possible solution.
