An Oil Centrifuge is a continuous process centrifuge machine capable of continuously separating Water and Sludge from any oil.

An Industrial Oil Water Centrifuge uses discs in the bowl to magnify the effective g-force, making 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.

Typical configurations of an Industrial Oil Cleaning Centrifuge include:

As an example - a typical layout of an industrial 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.

  1. Pre-Straining Module - separates debris (i.e., rocks, debris, bolts, etc.) from the untreated waste oil.
  2. Decanter Centrifuge Module - to de-sludge the pre-strained oil to separate the bulk of the sludge.
  3. Vertical Disc Centrifuge Module - for oil-water separation and to remove small particles down to 1-micron level.
