The Operation Principle of Drilling Mud Decanter Centrifuge

The drilling fluid decanting centrifuge is driven by two motors. The main motor drives the drum and differential shell rotation by the belt . The vice motor drives the spiral through the differential variable speed . The drum and spiral
rotate together in the same direction, but at different speeds . Separate the solid phases in the drilling mud by the centrifugal sedimentation principle. Suspending fluids is pushed into the rotor drum through the inlet pipe and under
the force of screw propeller, under the effect of centrifugal force, the solid phases will be pushed onto the inside wall of the drum, pass the impeller on the screw propeller and be discharged from the exhaust hole at the small side of
the drum. The fluids is excreted from the overflow hole of the large end. So continuous circle like above to achieve the target of continuous solid-liquid separation.

DCLW decanter centrifuge adopts centrifugal force to separate solid particles out of drilling fluid.Different solid or particle have different density and flow speed,some decanter centrifuge also can separate particles as different size
and density DCLW decanter centrifuge is widely used in oil and gas drilling,chemical,foodstuff,pharmacy,mineral beneficiation,water treatment,etc.

In order to fully understand how a decanter centrifuge operates, we must first define what a centrifuge does. In many industrial jobs, solid material often mixes with liquids, contaminating water supplies or turning mud into sludge.

A decanter centrifuge is useful in that it separates solids and liquids, and has become an essential component of water waste facilities and the chemical, oil, and food processing industries. Moreover, without a centrifuge, many of these companies would become so inefficient they could not function.


Do you know what factors determine the performance of decanter centrifuges ? Please carefully read as below.
1.the centrifugal force required for sedimentation of the solids
2.the clarification area necessary to “capture” the solids
3.the differential speed required to transport the solids out of the decanter
4.the hydrodynamic design, which determines the exact parameters for the turbulence
5.the design of the conveyor and beach sections, which are important for efficient solids transportation.

If you meet any problems of the decanter centrifuge, please contact DC Office to get the solutions.

Deanter centrifuge is a very efficiency equipment for wasterwater process working progress. The centrifuge consists of a solid bowl, which rotates and contains the process. A screw conveyor, contained within the bowl, turns at a slightly different speed from the bowl.

DC Decanter centrifuge is an effective separation equipment which use centrifugal acceleration generated by high-speed rotation into the acceleration of gravity to shorten thousands of times of the settlement time of solid particles than in the gravity field. The solid particles are discharged from the drum through the screw conveyor continuously and without interruption.

The material is conveyed to the screw discharge port through the feeding pipe and uniformly distributed in the drum through the spiral discharge port which is rotated at a high speed, and the main motor drives the drum to rotate at high speed through the belt to generate thousands of times of gravitational acceleration.

Rapidly settlement and accumulation of the solids particles in the inner wall of the drum, there is a relative movement of the screw conveyor to the drum, which will continuously push the sediment towards to outlet. The sediment is mostly dewatered under the combined action of the screw conveyor squeeze and drum dehydration. After the separation, the liquid is discharged freely through the liquid outlet point.

1. Smaller Area Occupation: Centrifuge occupies only 1/5 of the other types of filter equipment with same process capacity.

2. High Automatic Degree: All process including startup, feeding, separation, discharge, washing, etc. are controlled by PLC with touch screen.

3. Safety Operation: Rotation parts equipped with safety cover. All processes are monitored by temperature, vibration, speed, electricity measurement. Ex-proof control panel and motor are applied.

4. Clean Operation Site: Well sealed operation, enable a clean and safe working site.

5. High Adaptability: Adjustable differential and speed to meet variable material and process request.


The professional treatment of drilling fluids is essential to guarantee the perfect drilling process while simultaneously adhering to the mandatory environmental protection requirements. DC Solid control company supports this process by using high-performance centrifuges in which a robust, flexible and user-friendly design is of the utmost importance.

Continuous treatment of the drilling fluids with DCLW centrifuges ensures that the process sequences are smooth. Our centrifuges reliably separate unwanted solid materials, thus ensuring that no contaminated fluids pollute the ground and sea water, and that drilling fluids can be reused on a permanent basis.

DCLW centrifuges can also recover the relatively expensive heavy mineral, barite, which is added to increase the weight and density of the drilling fluids. Our centrifuges are so flexible that they can be used to both, to purify the drilling mud and to recover the barite.

Decanter Centrifuges are popular solid-and-liquid separators used in multiple industries for a wide array of products. Decanters are used for the extraction of liquids from large proportions of solids. It makes use of medium-low speed suspension to process larger capacities of solids as compared to a Basket Centrifuge.

A typical example of this type of two-phase separation is the dewatering of sludge from municipal sewage plant or industrial waste water treatment.last week, DC Machinery shipped a set of decanter centrifuge for India wasterwater procesed factory. Th model of the centrifuge is DCLW350-1200 and treating capacity is 15m3/h. With high speed and frequency conversion.

In this case, the residual moisture in the dewatered solids determines the disposal costs and the centrate quality determines the pollution load returned back to the treatment facility. Minimizing both must be achieved at the lowest possible cost, with the lowest possible polymer and energy consumption, with low maintenance costs and with the lowest possible number of required operating staff.

The decanter centrifuge consists of a solid bowl, which rotates and contains the process. A screw conveyor, contained within the bowl, turns at a slightly different speed from the bowl. If you have interest with it, please feel free to contact DC solid control.

Drilling mud is an integral part of most drilling operations, acting as a lubricant to protect the drilling equipment and the property being drilled. The drilling mud, also called drilling fluid, enables the solids being bored to travel to the top of the hole while they are suspended in the fluid.

DC Centrifuge Systems can provide solid-liquid separation technology to your drilling mud application, enabling reuse of the material and more efficient and cost- effective disposal. Ruggedly built and skid mounted, decanting centrifuge units designed for oilfield and industrial solids control service, can be especially effective for barite recovery, drilling mud, solids control, and drilling fluid / mud cleaning and process water treatment.


Decanter centrifuges are used to process unweighted and weighted, water-based and oil-based drilling fluids. Oilfield decanter centrifuges mechanically increase the gravitational force exerted on the liquid and solids mixture present in the mud system. Centrifuges can apply over 3,000 G-forces to separate heavier solids from the lighter solids.

Mechanical separation of solids from the mud system through the use of a decanter centrifuge is a highly effective means of maintaining proper mud weight and viscosity. When used in conjunction with other solids control equipment, decanting centrifuge enable users to maintain the mud properties within the prescribed range as per the drilling program.

Centrifuges commonly used for oilfield and gas well operations providing efficient solids control while significantly reducing the operator’s total mud cost and minimize waste disposal volumes.

At present oil field use drilling fluid centrifuge dispose drilling fluid is benefit, but if it is misuse will influence the production. For example if we continuous use two sets centrifuge, the first centrifuge is used to recover barites, the second centrifuge is used to eliminate abandon drilling cuttings. The first step is the traditional separation to make bottom follow return to drilling fluid system. The second centrifuge rotates with high speed to discharge low rate solid particles tomake the clean fluid return to the drilling fluid.


Separate the expensive mud

When separate the expensive oil base or synthetic base drilling fluid, overflow often returned to the mud system, but the big barites bottom follow with big solid particles are discharged and replaced by good barites. Because it contain colloform and the colloid particles can increase the viscosity.

Use hydrocyclone separator discharge

This is a polular method to use the not aggravate drilling fluid reduce the drilling fluid waste. But if the returned fluid quality is inappropriate, it could be harmful. Only the returned fluid solid particles density is less than 2 times of mud expected solid particles concentration. If the concentration is higher, the method will lead to the amount of waste is increase. So we must monitor the solid particles content in the returned drilling fluid system.


The purpose of separate aggravate drilling fluid is eliminating colloform or colloid particles, can’t eliminate the low rate solid particles. Colloid is a very small particles and can’t precipitate in purified water. So they can’t separated by centrifugation. Separation overflow returned to drilling fluid system always obtain colloid, so the particles always damaged. Reasonable use one or two sets centrifuge can obtain greater benefit when aggravate drilling fluid or compound drilling fluid works
