In a vibrating centrifuge, the angle in the cone of the drum is just steep enough to allow the product to slip from the smaller to the larger part of the cone to be discharged there. Additionally, in a vibrating centrifuge the whole strainer moves axially to allow discharge to take place.
In addition to the conical drum part, special versions of this type of centrifuge also have a cylindrical preliminary drainage zone which can be used during feed fluctuations or when changing a product, without having to make any adjustments to the drum cone.
Depending on their design, vibrating centrifuges are usually operated with low centrifugal acceleration and can be used for the dehumidification of easy-to-drain bulk cargoes such as coal, sea salt or sand.
