The main equipment that APG utilizes for dewatering is the
Horizontal Decanter Centrifuge. We also use other dewatering /
solids separation technologies in some applications, usually in
addition to centrifuges. The advantage that a centrifuge
brings is dryer cake, higher throughput and cleaner operation than
other continuous process dewatering equipment.
APG currently have some of the largest high "G" centrifuges
in North America. With all of our units being mobile, we
can have a turnkey operation ready to process within a few
days. Our quick setup and teardown capabilities allow us to be
economically feasible on smaller scope projects as well.
All of American Process Groupís centrifuges are controlled with
an industry leading, in-house developed control system.
This system incorporates all functions of the centrifuge and
intelligently controls pumping rates of slurry and polymer,
backdrive motor speed and other process elements based on operator
input. With this
system, APG can maximize centrifuge throughput, cake dryness, and
solids capture while minimizing polymer dosage.
is also experienced in engineering operations that involve more than
just centrifuges. We have designed processes for multiple
levels of solids removal in applications where it is required.
Equipment that we have used on these types of projects:
- Sand Classification
- Sand Washing
- Centrate Treatment
