The feed suspension is introduced to the centrifuge through a feed tube and into the feed distribution chamber, and is jetted into the bowl through the hole near the cone point of the scroll. Under centrifugal force the solids separate from the liquid and settle against the bowl wall, while the clarified liquid exits over the overflow screen. The solids in the conical drum are conveyed up from the smaller end to the bigger end while the scroll turns at a slightly different speed. The bigger diameter is, the bigger centrifugal force produces to separate the liquid/solids. The solids are dried when they are drained out the drum.
