The article represents materials that illustrate operation principle of centrifuges for separation of massecuite strike on sugar refineries and methods of increasing reliability and performance quality of their operation are revealed in the article. Reasons of origin of centrifuge vibrations as a result of non-equilibrium during their operation are envisaged among other factors. Methods of vibration decreasing as a result of applying auto-balancing devices are offered and results of experimental researches on research stand are summarized.
