DCLW Decanter centrifuge is driven by two motors. The main motor drives the drum and the outer casing of differential through belts while the auxiliary motor, after the differential shifting speed, drives the spiral propeller. This will make the drum and the spiral propeller rotate in the same direction with a certain differential speed.


Decanter centrifuge are used to process unweighted and weighted, water-based and oil-based drilling fluids (muds). Mechanical energy is utilized to increase the gravitational force exerted on solids that are present in the mud system.oilfield Decanting Centrifuge are able to apply over 3,000 G-forces on the liquid/solids mixture, which separates the heavier solids from the lighter solids. Additionally, high G-forces separate fine solids from liquid.

Yesterday, DC Solid control company shipped 3 sets middle speed drilling fluid centrifuge to Russian drilling site. Centrifuge used in drilling solids control is the decanter type. Almost the centrifuge used at drilling site are horizontal type. There are bowl, drum, conveyor, motor, control panel consisted in centrifuge assembly. Of course, also the support base or base frame.

Decanting centrifuge in drilling fluids system is used after desilter cone or mud cleaner. It can handle the solids ranged 2-7 microns. There are middle speed and the high speed one, the fixed frequency or VFD one. Treating capacity / handling rate varies along with centrifuge size. Usually, it is from 30~60m³/h. We can select screw pump or slurry pump as feeding pump.

Please find more information on DC solids control site. Or you can contact us freely. DC provides the high quality solids control decanter centrifuge,

In many cases the recovered solids from the hydrocyclone are fed to a dewatering shaker that is outfitted with as fine a screen as possible. It is extremely important to remember to use separate compartments and centrifugal pumps for each size hydrocyclone. Each stage of hydrocyclone should be sized out to process 125 to 150 percent of the volumetric circulating and dry tonnage rate to allow them to work more efficiently and reduce the likelihood of plugging. Cleaned fluid should always be discharged downstream.

The trenchless industry is seeing an increased demand for high-speed centrifuges to help remove colloidal size solids that can wreak havoc on a mud system if they are not removed. A centrifuge is a high speed, high “G” force rotating bowl and scroll assembly capable of separation down to 5 to 7 microns without chemical enhancement.


In this process, slurry is fed through a feed tube into the rotating bowl, where centrifugal force propels the ultra-fine solids outward against the interior wall of the bowl. A rotating conveyor in the center of the bowl drives the recovered solids toward the solids discharge ports, where they are expelled into a chute. Liquid is retained in the pool and discharged through the liquid discharge ports at the opposite end of the bowl.

If desired, polymer injection or “dewatering” units can be integrated with centrifuges to remove solids down to 0um. Polymer injected in between the feed pump and inlet of the centrifuge will flocculate the reactive ultra-fine solids, forming a heavy enough mass for the centrifuge to capture. If done properly, the result can be a semi-clear effluent that may be more readily disposed of or returned to the system. This can help drastically reduce or eliminate expensive drilling mud disposal.

Wastewater treatment plants for both municipal and industrial applications are designed to produce a clean, safe water discharge, usually to a river. The complexity of the plant will depend on the immediate environmental considerations and the consent limits negotiated with the authorities.

More and more our horizontal spiral decanter centrifuge already used in municipal applications and got the good feedback.

There are basically two application types in the wastewater treatment industry for the decanter centrifuge:

1. The first is to take liquid slurry (around 1-3% ds.) as feed to the decanter and thicken it to around 8% ds, often prior to going to a biological digester.
2. The second is to feed the decanter centrifuge with similar slurry and dewater the solids to a dry looking solids mass prior to disposal. In the second case the solids can come from the primary clarifier or the secondary clarifier after biological treatment.

Centrifuge used for recovery barite to remove small solid particles, reduce the mud solid content, to ensure the performance of the drilling fluid. And DC production drilling fluid centrifuge has high purification efficiency, convenient adjustment and easy maintenance.

Even the finest solids can be separated in the decanter centrifuge if its sedimentation rate in the carrier liquid is sufficiently high. The sedimentation rate depends on the particle size, the particle shape, the density difference between solid and liquid, and the viscosity of the latter. In many cases, significant improvement is possible by conditioning, for example heating or addition of flocculants. Also important is the geometrical design and establishment of operating parameters.


DC Solid control decanter centrifuges operate on the contraflow principle. This means that the suspension to be separated is fed approximately in the centre of the drum, the sedimented solid matter is conveyed towards the smaller diameter by the screw rotating at a speed differential in relation to the drum, whilst the clarified liquid overflows at the opposite end of the drum.


The height of the liquid level in the drum and thus the ratio of clarifying to drying section of the drum can be infinitely varied. This permits optimum matching to the separation application involved.

The speed differential between screw and drum is effected by means of a CYCLO gear unit. Drive is effected in standard form by V- belt, the centrifuge being fitted, according to speed combination, with a single drive (fixed eccentric shaft) or dual drive (driveneccentric shaft).
