Alfa Laval LAPX 404 Clarifier Centrifuge for fermentation, cell harvesting, broth clarification, cell debris separation for biotech, pharmaceutical, chemical and specialty pilot plant, laboratory scale up and production separation and purification applications.

The used Alfa Laval LAPX 404 offered is a high g force, high performance centrifugal clarifier designed for pilot plant , laboratory, small scale production and scale up capabilities.

We can supply the LAPX 404 separator on a standard or expedited delivery schedule.

LAPX 404 Clarifier Centrifuge Specifications:

The centrifuge equipment offered is a used, as is or reconditioned, fully automatic, self cleaning, plug-in separation system.

Hygienic design

The piping has been designed with hygienic considerations
being the utmost importance.

All product-wetted parts in the separator are in high grade stainless steel.

Clamp connections are used on all process piping to allow complete disassembly.

Fully automatic solids ejecting dosing ring design for low product losses and drier solids

Alfa Laval´s patented low shear disk inlet is a standard feature on the LAPX 404

Scale-up possibilities

  • The LAPX 404 will allow biochemists to use centrifugal separators on small scale duties and be able to reliably scale up to production scale.
  • Antifoam fouling is not a problem for centrifugal separators, so frequent changing of parts is not an issue as it is for membranes.
  • The centrifugal separator can be used on a wide variety of biologicals because blinding of porous surfaces and subsequent flux reduction is avoided.
  • The intermittent self-cleaning feature means the solids handling capacity of the LAPX 404 is much higher than tubular bowl machines. This, in turn, gives more hygienic operation and less operator involvement.
