LAKOS Separators for Food Processing

With the right LAKOS Separator, you can eliminate inconsistencies, rejections, maintenance, and down time. LAKOS Separators are commonly used in the food processing industry to separate solids from various liquid sources. Separators are used to protect spray nozzles from clogging, minimize wastewater to sewage lines, system downtime, and operating costs. A LAKOS Separator filters particles as fine as 44 microns that can be removed in a single pass with up to 98% efficiency. This allows rinse water to be recycled and reused in the process, spray nozzles to spray properly, and a more consistent product – saving you time, money, and product.
