Horizontal Decanter Centrifuges for Consistent and Reliable Performance

Every industrial manufacturing operation is unique. No two facilities handle the same materials in precisely the same setting, using precisely the same fluids under precisely the same conditions.

Nonetheless, most equipment companies push generic “one-size-fits-all” fluid separation, wastewater filtration, and dewatering solutions. As a result, manufacturers can struggle to pinpoint, minimize, and remove failure mechanisms that creep into their production process.

But if you can match the right separation process to your discharge, you can meet almost any challenge and get consistent results.

Horizontal decanter centrifuges are a powerful tool to process sludge or handle discharge: high solid content, variable “soft” and “hard” solids, and multiple liquid phases. For example, we have clients with high gross solids content—40 percent or higher by volume. When we match them with an application-specific custom scroll decanter, they’re able to remove all of those solids and dewater their sludge in a single pass.

Trucent provides a wide variety of decanters and industrial centrifuges, designed for liquid-liquid, liquid-solid, and liquid-liquid-solid (i.e., “three-phase”) separation. Our decanter centrifuges are optimized for continuous flow and low-maintenance/low-energy operation in a compact design. Their adjustable bowl and conveyor speed allow you to balance process speed, separation, dewatering, cake dryness, and discharge liquid clarity. The adjustable influent feed allows for efficient management of a wide range of flow rates. Our variable frequency drive (VFD) control package ensures efficient performance while minimizing costs and protects bearings from overheating and vibration. An operation can be pre-set or controlled automatically; no need to change belts or pulleys.

The Trucent Difference: Using the Right Tool to do the Right Job

We dedicate ourselves to a process-oriented approach. This approach has meant spending decades investing in a team composed of more than equipment experts and engineers. We’ve created teams that understand more than a few filtration strategies or a single industry. These teams have a deep appreciation for the fundamentals of fluid separation, as well as the daily realities of your specific industry and applications. They bring together decades of experience with non-disposable media filtration: coalescers, centrifuges, two-phase (i.e., “liquid/solid”) separators, three-phase (“liquid/liquid/solid”) separators, every type of tank skimmer, magnetic separators that catch fines down to 1 micron, and more.

Fluid Management Service for Industrial Fluids

And then we can go one step further. We can install a team in your plant to run and manage all your fluids and filtration technology on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. An in-house Trucent team does more than just handle fluid purchases, monitor those fluids, and maintain them at appropriate levels and concentrations. They look for novel ways to separate contaminants from your flow as early—and efficiently—as possible. This approach can unlock previously unseen opportunities to cut costs or increase throughput. No one else offers this level of comprehensive service and support.

Every solution begins with a conversation. Contact us today to start that conversation or schedule a no-obligation on-site consultation.

Comprehensive Purification and Filtration Products, Solutions & Services

Trucent provides low-maintenance, high-performance filtration and separation equipment and solutions. We can help you maintain your existing decanter—or design an entirely new particulate removal solution. We can install one piece of equipment or an entire team to manage all your filtration technology on a daily basis. The goals remain the same: Cleaner fluid, longer tool life, lower costs, and higher quality parts.
