is an organic compound from the group of sugar alcohols. It is used in various industries, e.g. in the food industry, cosmetics or medicines. Several purification steps are performed to produce pharmaceutical grade glycerine (99.5% purity). The existing solids are separated from the glycerine, among other things. The SHORTBOWL decanter centrifuges from SIEBTECHNIK TEMA are particularly successful in the production of pharmaceutical grade glycerine, as they are particularly efficient for the separation of solid and liquid in a hot suspension stream.
