Introducing the FRS IC-45 Centrifuge

Fluid Recycling System’s IC-45 Centrifuge is a high quality unit engineered for super-efficient separation of solids from liquids. The unit features a rotating stainless steel bowl, dynamically balanced for extra smooth operation, encased by a heavy machined cast bowl and lid including four point dampeners for vibration isolation.

The IC-45 Centrifuge is able to separate solids from drilling fluids, industrial oils, emulsions, solvents and many other contaminated fluids.

The IC-45 units will generate up to 4,000 gravitational centrifugal forces and feature:

  • Flow rate of 0-4,800 litres per hour (1,270 gph)
  • Bowl (rotor) holding capacity of six litres of liquid
  • Automatic removal of solids
  • Single phase and three phase power supply options.

The units are currently being used successfully in many industrial applications and more recently the drilling fluid and contaminated fluids industry. The units are cost-effective, many paying for themselves within a few months. Their superior design offers improved performance, a longer trouble-free operating life, and makes them more low-maintenance than any other centrifuge available on the market today.

Fluid Recycling System’s IC-45 Centrifuge works with the use of centrifugal force, allowing separation of any solid particles from liquid. The centrifugal force has a maximum 4,000 gravities. The separation of solids is greatly improved when the liquid is exposed longer to the centrifugal force. This can be achieved by simply slowing the supply rate to the centrifuge. Extended retention time enables improved clarity and cleanliness in the end product.

The liquid is fed through an inlet connection in the lid of the centrifuge, entering directly into the rotating bowl where the centrifugal force then throws the solids out of the liquid and to the side of the bowl. The solid content then becomes compacted as a sludge mixture, and the clean liquid then flows up the centre of the bowl and discharges by gravity through a two-inch outlet at the bottom of the centrifuge. The solids left in the bowl can then be removed manually or ideally removed automatically by means of the self-cleaning device.
