Description

The HS-3400 series centrifuge is fed from the solids end of the conveyor. Mud is introduced into the feed chamber through a feed tube and exits into the bowl via four nozzles. The HS-3400 FS exerts up to 2,275 G’s on the mud, while the HS-3400 VSD, HS-3400 FVS, and the HS-3400 VS exert up to 2,100 G’s.

The HS-3400 FS is a fixed-speed drive unit, whereas the HS-3400 FVS and HS-3400 VS are equipped with variable-frequency drive (VFD) control, which provides a controlled application of motor drive power to the centrifuge components (bowl, conveyor, and feed pump). Hardware and software packages can be custom-designed to specific installation and operational requirements.

The HS-3400 VSD is a hydraulically driven unit with a variable speed bowl drive. The HS-3400 FVS is electrically driven, with both the bowl drive and conveyor equipped with variable speed. The HS-3400 VSD and HS-3400 FVS centrifuges offer increased operational flexibility in situations for which conditions vary.

With a processing capacity up to 200 gal/min (757 L/min), the HS-3400 series centrifuge offers outstanding performance in a wide range of drilling applications and conditions.

Features

  • Up to 200 gal/min (757 L/min) maximum processing capacity
  • 52:1 ratio planetary gearbox
  • Feed from solids end
  • VFD control (HS-3400 FVS)
  • Bowl and heads manufactured of stainless steel
  • Stainless steel case
  • Entire scroll fitted with sintered tungsten carbide tiles
  • Flush connections
  • Case gaskets
  • Vibration switch shut-off mechanism (HS-3400 FS, HS-3400 FVS)
  • Case baffle gasket
  • Torque overload mechanism (HS-3400 FS, HS-3400 VSD)
  • Roller and ball bearings
  • Sturdy WF-beam skid
  • Eight tungsten carbide solids discharge nozzles
  • Four epicentric orifices
  • Chute style discharge for solid and liquid ends

Benefits

  • Ample capacity for use in a variety of drilling applications and conditions (water)
  • Provides for a reduced motor size
  • Provides a short feed tube with less vibration
  • Permits easy adjustment of bowl, conveyor, and feed pump speeds for varying process conditions; provides torque overload protection
  • Provides corrosion resistance for long life, smooth operation, and low maintenance
  • Offers high strength and corrosion resistance
  • Offers abrasion resistance for maximum operational life and low maintenance
  • Aids in cleaning excess material from inside the case
  • Retains process materials within the case to prevent spills or leaks
  • Automatically disables operation in situations of high vibration
  • Keeps separated streams apart
  • Shuts down both the centrifuge and feed pump in overload situations due to blockage
  • Offers long life and low maintenance
  • Supplies a solid foundation for smooth operation
  • Offers an abrasion-resistant exit of solids from the bowl to discharge. These nozzles are also cost effective during refurbishment, as they can simply be replaced rather than needing costly repairs.
  • Enables high discharge flow rate and easy adjustment of the pond depth
  • Enables high-capacity processing
