3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge in Oil Recovery Unit

3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge(Three-phase Decanter Centrifuge) is also called Tri-canter centrifuge, it is commonly used in oil drilling work to separate the oil rate from drilling solids, it belongs decanter centrifuge series. In Oil Recovery Unit project, 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge is the core solid control equipment in the whole system. Today we will share more information about 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge.

3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge

Just as we all know that decanter centrifuge is the main equipment for a whole solid control system, even in the drilling waste management unit, we also need a VFD decanter centrifuge (of course, cutting dryer is also the core part one on drilling waste management, while mud cleaner is the important equipment in solid control system), both system should be worked with drilling mud tank, that is to say, the whole equipment should be mounted in the mud tank. 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge is the core one for the whole oil recovery unit.

You will find necessary information about oil recovery unit in last post. We did not mention the 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge in that post. In our design, 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge is a kind of solid control equipment used to separate the mud, water and oil from the drilling solids. Comparing with traditional decanter centrifuge, the most important function of the three-phase decanter centrifuge is that it could separate the oil from the drilling solids, while the traditional one just could separate the mud and water.

Generally speaking, 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge is always used in huge solid control system or the system like Oil Recovery Unit. The common feature of these units is they are huge and complicated. At the same time, because of the high technology needs and heavy difficult for design and manufacture, 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge is the one with blooming and splendid.

If you are interested in our solid control system or drilling waste management, please feel free to contact Kosun for more details information. We are always here to support your demand!

Introduction of Kosun 3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge

Kosun 3 Phase Decanter CentrifugeTypical Applications:Oil sludge treatment, animal/plant fat & oil extraction, starch & vital gluten separation, fish oil, albumen and fish meal separation in fish oil field.

3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge

3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge can be used in following cleaning, solid remove and impurity remove 3 phase separation field: tar, pesticide, oil filed recovered oil, used oil, waste oil & fat from restaurant, palm oil, oil tank cleaning, oil refining sludge, oil station cleaning sludge, olive oil, orange oil, gas floating sludge, food waste sludge.

3 Phase Decanter Centrifuge Operation Principle:

Similar with 2 phase decanter centrifuge operation principle, under the centrifugal force the feeding material can be divided into three relative stable layers. From the bowl inside wall there will be solids phase layer, heavy liquid phase and light liquid phase.

The solids phase layer is pushed to bowl small-end part by conveyor and discharged from solid outlet. The heavy liquid phase and light liquid phase are delivered to bowl big-end part and discharged separately from two different outlets.

It can reach three-phase separation.

Separation Type:

Solid -liquid –liquid

Liquid -liquid-solid
