Description of decanter centrifuge

Decanter centrifuge including low speed, middle speed and high speed one. Different speed will produce different centrifugal force, treating capacity, and separation point. Centrifuge consists of scroll conveyor, drum, motor, differential, inlet port, discharge port, solid discard port, and so on. Decanter centrifuge will be fed by submersible slurry pump or screw pump with drilling fluid for finer separation of solid.

Centrifuge procedure

The material feeding into the inlet port, under centrifugal force generated by drum and scroll conveyor rotation, the solid will be dried and discharged via solids discard port. We know, on the centrifuge bowl or drum there are liquid zone and drying zone. Cleaned drilling fluids will flow out centrifuge via the clean liquid effluent at liquid zone end.
