State-of-the-art of 2-phase and 3-phase decanter centrifuge separation technology.Setting the benchmark for a variety waste oil applications.

Beyond manufacturing decanter centrifuges. DC Solid control will also assist our clients regarding the optimal plant design and recommended choice of ancillary equipment plus implementation and commissioning of the decanter centrifuge equipment. Such other equipment include shale shakers, desander, desilter, mud agitators,mud tanks,vertical cutting dryers. Feel free to contact DC Solid control to get more info.

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.

Decanter centrifuges

The principle behind a decanter centrifuge is based on the theory of gravitational separation. For example, if you fill a glass with a mixture of mud and water, over time the weight of the mud will cause it to settle down at the base of the glass. With the mud congealed at the bottom, the water will be forced upwards, creating a clear separation between the two.

The ability to purify a liquid makes decanter centrifuges ideal for waste water treatment facilities. However, there are variety of industries for which such centrifuges play an important role.

A decanter centrifuge separates solids from one or two liquid phases in one single continuous process. This is done using centrifugal forces that can be well beyond 3000 times greater than gravity. When subject to such forces, the denser solid particles are pressed outwards against the rotating bowl wall, while the less dense liquid phase forms a concentric inner layer.

There are several types of decanter centrifuges currently utilized in the industry, the most widely recognized are vertical, horizontal and conveyor centrifuges. The principle behind a decanter centrifuge is based on the theory of gravitational separation.

For example, if you fill a vessel with a mixture of mud and water, over time the weight of the mud will cause it to settle down at the base of the vessel. With the mud congealed at the bottom, the water will be forced upwards, creating a clear separation between the two.

A decanter centrifuge employs the same principles of gravitational force. However, unlike the glass mixture, the process is expedited through the use of continuous rotation. In fact, rotation provides anywhere from 1000 to 4000 times the normal gravitational force, reducing the time required for separation from hours to seconds.

Drilling fluid centrifuge is an important part in solid control system. Drilling mud cleaning first stage uses drilling fluids shale shaker ,then second stage uses desander,third desilter,(now drilling mud cleaner is widely used to replace desander,desilter).

As we know, at the beginning centrifuge for drilling rig is from chemical and food industry, etc. But now, we find centrifuge for drilling fluid process is more advanced and professional.

The drilling mud decanter centrifuges can separate fine particles well,for separating 5~7μm particles in drilling mud,usually use medium speed decanter centrifuge,for less then 2μm,usually use high speed decanter centrifuges.

Actually, in drilling rig solids control system centrifuge is the most complicated one. It is rather difficult for operator get leagal operation, etc. However, in long term its important position is following shale shaker subsequently.

Shortly speaking, centrifuges play an important role in the whole mud cleaning system, meanwhile it is an obbligato part for the mud cleaning unit. If you want to learn more about it, please feel free to contact me.
