Features and Benefits of Vertical Decanter Centrifuge

KOSUN Vertical Decanter Centrifuge can effectively recover the liquid phase in drilling cuttings, making the solid phase become very dry. It is suitable for water-base mud, oil-base mud and synthetic base mud. By recovering the mud in drilling cuttings, the vertical cuttings dryer can reduce the drilling cost and cut down environmental pollution. With handling capacity of 40-60 T/h, the oil on cuttings (OOC) of drilling cuttings can be reduced to lower than 5% (w/w) after treatment, meeting the international emissions standards and environmental protection requirements. The vertical centrifuge can also be applicable for drilling waste management in onshore and offshore drilling.

Features and Benefits of Vertical Decanter Centrifuge:

Environmental and cost

-Highly effective liquids/solids separation minimizes fluid content of cuttings

-Reduces waste-disposal volumes

-Effective separation reclaims high percentages of fluid that can be reused in the active mud system

-Recovers whole mud lost from shale shaker failure, rig motion and screen blinding, that is cost- effective.

Operational Advantages

-Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), with automatic warning indicators, monitors temperature, torque, oil flow and operating hours

-High-capacity, continuous feed units have the throughput to keep up with drilling

-Tungsten-carbide-coated, independently adjustable flights reduce wear and ensure optimal tolerance

-Handrail and walkways is convenient for operators to do routine maintenance work, that can reduce risk to personnel

-Different kinds of screens can meet various operation requirements

Ease of Maintenance

-Normal wear parts are easily accessible from the top of the unit; belts are easily

-Changed without removing gear assembly

-Interchangeable tungsten carbide flights protect rotor and gear box from excessive erosion, minimizing main component failure

-Explosion-proof motors and control panels can be certified with CE/ATEX

The Vertical Decanter Centrifuge improves overall cost-efficiency, producing reduced amounts of extremely dry cuttings for disposal and recovering valuable fluid for reuse. It is effective with water-, oil- and synthetic-base drilling fluids. (Editor:Kosun Lily.Wang)
