5 sets of high speed big bowl decanter centrifuge start to service at a power plant for dewatering application. The model of the 5 sets big bowl decanter centrifuge for dewatering is GNLW454E. It is a 18 inch big bowl decanter centrifuge specialled designed for waste water treatment.
Compared with normal big bowl decanter centrifuge, GNLW454E has a bigger ratio of bowl diameter and bowl length. The ratio is up to 4. It means the slurry will go through a longer separation path while going through the bowl. So the liquid can will be clean while be discharged, and the solids phase will be more drier.
The working principle of the decanter centrifuge is as follows: the decanter centrifuge bowl and the screw conveyor rotate at the same direction and at high speed. But the rotating speed of bowl and screw conveyor is not the same. In this case, there will be a certain differential speed between centrifuge bowl and screw propeller. And the differential speed is at the same direction with centrifuge bowl and screw impeller rotation.
The material is continuously introduced into the inner cylinder of the screw conveyor through the feed pipe, and enters the bowl after acceleration. The lighter liquid phase forms an inner liquid ring, which overflows the bowl continuously from the large-end overflow port of the bowl, and is discharged, out of the bowl through the liquid discharge port at another end.
Besides GNLW454E 18 inch decanter centrifuge, GN Solids Control also has other sides centrifuge models for various applications.
9 inch decanter centrifuge: GNLW223, GNLW224 series
14 inch decanter centrifuge: GNLW363, GNLW364 series
