An Oil Centrifuge is a continuous process centrifuge machine capable of separating Water and Sludge from any kind of oil on a continuous basis.
An Industrial Oil Water Centrifuge uses discs in the bowl to magnify the effective g-force which makes them highly efficient at separating small traces of water and sludge from oil or the other way around. These centrifuges are also known as Disc Stack Separators.
It contains a cylindrical bowl that rotates inside a larger stationary housing. The denser liquid, which is usually water, accumulates at the rotating bowl's periphery and is collected & discharged. In contrast, the less dense liquid, which is usually oil, accumulates at the rotation axis and is collected & discharged from the center.
As an example - a typical layout of a industrial level centrifuge setup for waste oil is shown below.
The system consists of 3 individual steps which are needed for oil, water and sludge processing at high capacity.
