How does the centrifugal separator separates particles from water?

The water to be filtered is fed into the separator from the side so that the water rotates in the centrifugal separator. As in the chain carousel, the heavy particles are forced outwards by centrifugal forces.

Since the water is removed in the middle, there are no heavy particles left. The separated particles end up in a chamber from which they are regularly rinsed out either manually or via a timer-controlled valve.
