What is a Horizontal Decanter Centrifuge?

At its most basic level, a decanter centrifuge is a clarifier. It’s designed to separate suspensions into solids and liquids and can even separate fluids with different densities through high-speed continuous rotation.

What is a horizontal decanter centrifuge?

How a decanter centrifuge separates solids

Liquids of different densities or solutions with solids, which are denser than liquids, are the best candidates for centrifuge clarification.

Also known as a solid bowl centrifuge or horizontal bowl centrifuge, a decanter centrifuge is commonly used in various industrial processes. Consisting of a bowl with a solid wall, a cylinder, and a cone, the equipment is designed to rotate, which creates a centrifugal force. The solids are shifted to the wall of the bowl, and the clarified liquid phase remains in the middle of the bowl. The helical screw conveyor moves along the bowl’s walls to move the solids to the discharge point, which allows the solids to be collected and removed.

Horizontal decanter centrifuges are highly efficient, versatile, and easy to customize according to industry needs.

How well a horizontal decanter centrifuge functions can vary depending on several factors, including:

  • Rotational speed of the bowl and screw
  • Bowl design
  • Density or viscosity of the material being separated
  • Changes in the feed material’s composition
  • Flow rate
  • Other changes in feed condition

How Industrial Decanter centrifuge technology is used in oil and gas

Treating slop and sludge is essential to preserving environmental integrity. Our decanter centrifuges can simplify the slop treatment process. The suspension clarification process can also help minimize discharge by removing everything from oil to bentonite and cement from the liquid in question.

We take pride in manufacturing big bowl decanters, a sought-after feature in the oil and gas industry. These decanters are uniquely designed to process, treat, and separate drilling mud, accomplishing this effectively and efficiently through high-speed rotation in a single continuous operation. The integration of the latest technology and processes within our state-of-the-art facilities ensures that our decanter centrifuges are not only reliable but also of superior quality. Trust Vision Machine Inc. to provide you with robust solutions for your most demanding operational needs.

Food and Beverage

We have dramatically simplified and streamlined the precision process of producing fruit and vegetable juices, beer, wine, and other beverages with our horizontal decanter centrifuges.

How it’s used in food processing

The food and beverage industry has very precise needs and requirements. Vision Machines supports the food and beverage industry with equipment that is efficient, precise, and easy to clean and maintain.

As one of the top horizontal centrifuge manufacturers, we make the solid liquid separation process more efficient. With our centrifuges, you can quickly and easily clarify beer, wine, fruit juices, vegetable products, applesauce, and other food and beverage products. You’ll achieve maximum juice extraction, the utmost in the clarified liquid phase, and drier “cake” or extracted solids.

Vision Machine manufactures centrifuges with flexible designs to make it easier to adapt the product based on the substance or process for a higher-quality end product. You will have the maximum level of control for streamlined separation and superior results.

Wastewater Treatment

Water treatment begins with separating liquids from solids. Separation can be achieved using our high-speed centrifuges. The rotation process can help reduce residual volume and improve your overall operations, allowing you to decrease processing costs as well as the costs associated with wastewater transfer, storage, and disposal.

Decanter centrifuge manufacturers for wastewater treatment

How they are used in the sludge dewatering process for wastewater treatment industries

The sludge dewatering process requires the separation or removal of water from wastewater sludge. Using a decanter centrifuge makes sludge dewatering faster, simpler, and more efficient. Any liquid involved remains in the center of the bowl while the cake or solid particles are sent to the outer edge. There the solids can be collected for easier removal and disposal.

By using our highly effective horizontal decanter centrifuges, you can achieve maximum separation during the sludge dewatering process and lower your costs. You’ll even find they are easy to operate and maintain, making them the most cost-effective choice. We can customize our industrial centrifuges to fit industry-specific needs or product requirements.

Chemical Processing

Vision Machine’s horizontal industrial decanter centrifuges are used by the chemical processing industry to separate and clarify chemicals, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and more simply and effectively.
