LW Horizontal Decanter Centrifuge

LW horizontal decanter centrifuge is one of the most essential components to our sludge dewatering unit. This part is endowed with remarkable conical angel, baffle disc (BD) and considerable L/D ratio, as well as large-torque planetary differential gear or hydraulic driving system. As a result, our pharmaceutical wastewater handling equipment is renowned for high speed, large torque and small gear ratio.

Main Features
1. High Speed
High bowl rotating speed comes with impressive centrifugal force, ensuring our sludge dewatering unit to be applicable for fine particles ≥3μm.

2. Large L/D Ratio
Actual bowl length and diameter ratio is no less than ≥4.1. Large sedimentation area prolongs time of sludge clarification and dewatering.

3. Baffle Disc (BD)
Baffle disc is the round plate deposited between sedimentation section and drying section. Sludge, which comes from sedimentation section, is pressed into drying section for lower moisture rate. Moreover, BD also isolates sludge from polymer. Pond depth is larger than solid discharge.

Bowls with Different Angles

Driving Technology
Our centrifuge adopts various driving systems to practically handle different substances. The bowl driving system consists of AC motor and variable frequency drive. The driving system for scroll falls into the combination of AC regeneration variable frequency drive and multiple-stage planetary gearbox, as well as hydraulic driving system with independent hydraulic pump.

  • Common DC Bus Drive
  • Differential System for Hydraulic Scroll Drive
Hydraulic Scroll Drive

This hydraulic drive is the sealed power system comprising bowl and scroll, and independent from bowl driving system. This drive is different from other mechanical systems by being free from assistance of bowl rotation for differential speed. It is directly deployed on scroll assembly and is powered by independent hydraulic pump aggregate.

Working Principle of Hydraulic Scroll Drive
The housing of hydraulic scroll differential gear is connected with bowl for rotation at same high speed. Splined shaft on differential gear rotor connects with scroll which rotates at different speed from bowl. As a result, differential speed Δn is generated.

The connection between scroll differential gear and hydraulic pump aggregate is maintained by high-pressure hose, thus no gearbox is needed between bowl and scroll. Moreover, scroll torque delivers pressure on hydraulic system, based on which the change of differential speed is determined by adjustments on oil supply. In addition, differential speed is displayed on pump aggregate and scroll differential gear, and allows for remote reading.

Main Features of Hydraulic Scroll Drive
1. No gear transmission device
2. Free from part crack by overload
3. No vibration
4. Directly readable torque and differential speed Δn
5. Δn is independent from bowl speed.
6. Constantly minimized cake moisture
7. Processed liquid in high clarity
8. Power for solids conveying varies from solid content.
9. Dewatering process varies from different Δn.
10. Impressive feeding capacity minimizes feeding jam.
11. Safety pin ensures safe operation.
