Decanter centrifuge is an common used unit in many industry. A centrifuge is a device, which employs a high rotational speed to separate components of different densities. The decanter centrifuge separates solid materials from liquids in slurry and therefore plays an important role in wastewater treatment, chemical, oil and food processing industries. There are several factors that affect the performance of a decanter centrifuge and some design heuristics to be followed which are dependent upon given applications.

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.


The main components of decanter centrifuge are the bowl, differential Speed and scroll.

The separation medium reaches its maximum speed in the decanter bowl, causing the solids to settle on the bowl inner diameter. A characteristic feature of the bowl is its cylindrical/conical shape. Find out more about the decanter bowl.

The scroll is the transport tool in a decanter centrifuge. It rotates with a differential speed (in relation to the bowl) and transports the settled solids towards the conically narrowing end of the bowl. Find out more about the decanter scroll.

There is a differential speed between the decanter bowl and the scroll, which is created by a gear unit. The differential speed determines the solid content in the outfeed and also offers other advantages. For more information, refer to differential speed.

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.

Decanter centrifuge has become a major processing tool in a wide range of liquid/solid separation applications. The solid-bowl scroll-discharge centrifuge-now almost universally known as the decanter centrifuge-has, indeed, become the workhorse of a wide range of liquid/solid separation activities.

Its application to the dewatering of waste sludges has made it a most valuable tool in combating environmental pollution. This has made the decanter a well- known and widely appreciated piece of equipment.

Although a complicated of machinery, the decanter centrifuge embodies a simple principle, that of the screw conveyor. In basic term, the decanter comprises a solid cylindrical bowl, rotating at high speed. Inside the bowl is a scroll( screw conveyor) rotating at a slightly different speed. The differential speed between bowl and scroll provides the conveying motion to collect and remove the solids, which accumulate at the bowl wall.


A slurry of liquid and suspended solids is fed along the centre line, to some fixed position within the bowl wall by the centrifugal force. This same force then cause the suspended solids to settle, and accumulate at the bowl wall. The clarified liquid then flows along the bowl, to leave at one end of it, over some kind of weir design, which sets the level of the liquid surface in the bowl.

The other end of the bowl is sloped inwards, towards the centre, thus providing a beach, up which the solids are conveyed, to be discharged from the bowl, at the top of the beach. Whilst the solids are conveyed up the beach,some, hopefully most, of the entrained liquid drains back into the pond, to join the liquid flow towards the
far end.

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 centrifuge is used for the separation of two or more phases of different specific gravity, in particular for the clarifying of liquids in which suspended solids are present. The separation of solids and liquids takes place within a cylindrical/conical rotating bowl, upon the periphery of which the heavier solid phase collects and is continually removed by the internal conveyor.

Before centrifuge and Hydrocyclone input oil drilling solid control can control drilling fluid solid phase content method only has shale shaker and dilution.

So the small particles can’t be eliminated by shale shaker only according dilute to control the solid phase content. In the process of using aggravating drilling fluid, if the solid phase content reach to the maximum volume and drilling cuttings constantly enter into drilling fluid, it needs continual replenish pure water to control drilling fluid viscosity.

At the same time need add barites to control drilling fluid density, so will produce the surplus drilling fluid, the processing cost is expensive.

In order to solve the problem, horizontal spiral sedimentation centrifuge begin used in solid control system and gradually become the important solid control equipment.

When centrifuge operate, the drum high speed rotate, drilling fluid enter into the drum according centrifugal pump, because the effect of centrifugal force improve the suspended solid phase sedimentation speed and separation efficiency, drilling fluid obtain rapidly solid-liquid separation.

At present, in horizontal solid control process, drilling fluid centrifuge is deemed to the last processing equipment. Shale shaker and hydrocyclone is used to separate and eliminate big drilling cuttings, centrifuge is used to separate and eliminate small particles and supper fine particles, this is the big difference of centrifuge, shale shaker and hydrocyclone.

Using centrifuge eliminate can increase viscosity and shearing force, and also can recover more value big size aggravating solid phase.
