heart of the HydroPure STS is a specially designed, horizontal three-phase
centrifuge. The centrifuge has an adjustable on-the-fly liquid phase separator
which enables liquid purity adjustments while the machine is in operation.
Therefore, when a change occurs in the oil/water ratio in the sludge being
processed, a simple adjustment by an external lever is made without experiencing
downtime as with most other centrifuges. The HydroPure Tri-Phase Centrifuge
is also capable of 3,100 G-Forces which facilitates the removal of the
finest particles and has a long, shallow taper in the conical section
which enables the centrifuge to produce the driest solid cake possible.
The most important advantages the HydroPure Tri-Phase Centrifuge has over
competing centrifuge manufacturers include its durability and simple field
maintenance capabilities. HydroPure has engineered its centrifuge to withstand
the most abrasive minerals found in oily/water/solid sludges. HydroPure
manufactures its own wear components that are engineered to protect the
machines from metal erosion and easily be changed in the field. Abrasion
prevention components protect the machine's core metal from wear, thereby
eliminating expensive and routine rebuilds as with other centrifuges.
In most cases, the HydroPure Tri-Phase Centrifuge can be disassembled,
wear pieces replaced, and reassembled in the field in one day for a fraction
of the cost of a normal centrifuge rebuild.
The HydroPure Tri-Phase Centrifuges are the best performing, most reliable,
and least operationally expensive centrifuges available to process oil/water/solid
sludges. HydroPure builds these machines to consistently operate with
minimal maintenance costs and downtime.
HydroPure normally packages its centrifuges into turn-key STS units, but
can sell the centrifuges independently. The centrifuges can be outfitted
with variable speed hydraulic backdrives, variable speed gearbox units,
or fixed speed gearbox units depending on application and cost considerations.
