What does the settling time of the snail sludge dewatering machine depend on?


The settling time depends on the size and shape of the centrifuge drum and the thickness of the liquid layer. The drum may be conical or a combination of conical and cylindrical shapes. The centrifuge first used in the oil field was a conical drum. Many oilfield centrifuges today still use conical design, but also useful cylindrical/conical (shape) design. The diameter and length of the drum must be the same. The cone (shape) design can provide more internal settlement space. , The mud stays in the drum for a long time, and the separation ability is strong.


Generally speaking, the greater the centrifugal force acting, the more difficult it is for the screw conveyor to remove the mud cakes, and as a result the torque of the conveyor increases. The greater the solid phase concentration in the imported mud, the greater the torque. Regardless of any centrifuge, the torque allowed by its design is certain. In order to maintain this torque value, it may be necessary to reduce the speed and reduce the inlet mud flow.
