When is it time to rebuild your decanter centrifuge?
Performing regular maintenance on your decanter centrifuge can keep you up and running smoothly for years, but eventually your machine may require a full rebuild to maintain performance. That’s why we put together this list of indicators to help you make the case for rebuilding your equipment.
A rebuild can restore or improve your equipment’s dewatering or thickening performance. It can also be significantly less expensive than a new decanter centrifuge or full rotating assembly.
If you are experiencing more than three of the indicators below, it may be time to think about a rebuild.
Equipment operating for more than ~ 15K hours (can vary based on plant and application)
Reduced capacity from original specifications
Reduced cake dryness
Increased power draw for the same loading
Increased vibrations from your steady state
Atypical or cyclic sounds
Increased bearing temperature
Unexpected alarms or equipment stops
