Decanter centrifuges used in well drilling mud system

Decanter centrifuges are popular equipment to process drilling mud with fine solids. It is set after desilter or mud cleaner.

Decanter centrifuges information 

We call it as 5th purification equipment since shale shaker, degasser, desander and desilter are set ahead of it. Per drilling condition and depth, in one system there is middle speed centrifuge or high speed centrifuge. According to users' preference, there are fixed speed or variable frequency centrifuge

Decanter centrifuges get rid of 2~7 microns solid. Speed is from 1800~3400RPM. Flow rate of centrifuge is from 30~60m³/h. Different design and size will lead different performance. Centrifuges can be fed by screw pump and the submersible slurry pump. Both are compact and suitable for centrifuge fluid transfer.

How to use decanter centrifuges?

For almost users, they know how to operate centrifuges. They have worked in oil and gas industry many many years. Or they have much experience on solids control. So, we just talk little here.

Centrifuge is not suggested use in series. However, there are middle speed and high speed ones. That's a different case. BTW, for deep drilling, we use centrifuges in a tandem or parallel. When we operate centrifuge face any problem we'd better toward to manufacturer or supplier. Also the complete understanding on user manual or instruction is rather necessary
