Titan Centrifuge

The TITAN Batch Centrifugal is designed to be a low-maintenance, efficient and cost-effective solution while providing a high return on investment for the end-user. Maintenance is reduced by minimizing the number of moving parts and the use of high strength alloys and non-metallic, food grade, components. The latest variable frequency drive technology and PLC controls ensures efficient operation with low power consumption. The TITAN Batch Centrifugal is available in capacities from 1400 kg to 2400 kg.

Continuous Centrifuge

The ROBERTS I-SERIES Continuous Centrifugal is the most productive continuous centrifugal available. Two innovative Western States’ designs combine to provide maximum throughput with very low final molasses purity; to create the cast stainless steel basket with machined annular grooves for large drainage area, and to innovate the side feed system with complete massecuite conditioning.

The New ROBERTS® G-16 LINC Batch Centrifugals

The ROBERTS® G-16 LINC has several advantages over the G8-style batch centrifuge. The G-16 LINC incorporates the latest TITAN Batch Centrifugal technology; fits into existing footprints; and utilizes existing structural steel. As a result, it is budget friendly (closer to the cost of used equipment) while increasing performance, productivity, and throughput.

Key ROBERTS® G-16 LINC features include: a downward opening spring basket valve which allows for a completely unobstructed sugar discharge; a simple design; a long valve life; and no part of the mechanism is in the basket.

Utilizing Western States’ patented ringless baskets in the G-16 LINC centrifuge increases the overall throughput capacities, which immediately and positively impacts the bottom line. Additionally, the unit comes standard with our new N-13 Universal Discharger which is easily adjustable and minimizes sugar loss.
