The MOPX205 Separation System is operated automatically by the Dolphin Centrifuge PLC/HMI control system. The MOPX205 separator bowl can be arranged as a purifier or as a clarifier.
A purifier separates sludge and water from the oil. Water is continuously discharged from the bowl. The sludge accumulated in the sludge space in both a purifier and a clarifier is intermittently discharged.
In a clarifier, the water outlet is blocked i.e. the water handling capability is limited.
In the purifier mode, the Dolphin control system automatically controls the water admitted to the separator for the water seal and displacement of oil prior to sludge discharge. During normal operation vital process parameters are monitored. The Dolphin control system provides alarm functions for broken water seal, low oil pressure, high back pressure and others.
