These are devices which are directly purchased by the plants or purchased by suppliers and then installed in the plants.  The purchasing decision can be made solely by the supplier but in many cases, there is at least a plant specification with a preferred vendor list.  With IIoT and Remote O&M monitoring decision making will be centralized.   Less than 20,000 people at 2000 end user corporations and suppliers will account for 86 percent of all sedimentation and centrifugation purchases. The impact of IIoT the market is analyzed in  N031 Industrial IOT and Remote O&M.Top of Form

In the U.S. sedimentation decisions have often been made by the consultants such as AMEC, Sargent & Lundy, Black & Veatch, Burns & McDonnell, or Bechtel.  In Asia there is  a complex tier of decision makers.  System suppliers typically include sedimentation and centrifugation equipment as part of their package.  Most scrubbers are sold by companies offering a package including initial separation and recycling of scrubber liquor.

McIlvaine is providing forecasts for each of the major suppliers and operators. Here is an example of the forecasts for five food manufacturing companies for the various centrifuge types.
