Whether you are working toward maximizing barite recovery or looking to get the most out of your “zero-discharge” closed-loop system, Elgin’s field proven decanter centrifuges are a perfect choice. With over 550 centrifuges installed worldwide, Elgin’s ESS-1450HD2 Decanter Centrifuge is a field proven solution.

Power and Performance

Elgin’s ESS-1450HD2 Decanter Centrifuge is fitted with a NEMA premium, continuous duty, energy-efficient, poly-chain driven, 50 hp main drive. The 50 hp main drive can operate the decanter centrifuge up to a maximum rotational speed of 3,250 rpm, thus, generating more than 2,100 G’s of force. By using an adjustable motor mount, motor and belt maintenance is made easy by the adjustment of two jack screws. No additional motor mounts, brackets, or tensioning devices are required.

By utilizing a carbon fiber poly-chain, no belt retensioning is required after installation is complete. The carbon fiber tensile cords are length-stable and can withstand shock loads that frequently lead to belt failure. The poly-chain’s polyurethane body withstands harsh environments and the nylon fabric teeth resist wear. More importantly, Elgin’s carbon fiber poly-chain will not require quarterly replacement. The combined savings achieved by eliminating belt tensioned and 75% of the typically required belt replacements (when compared to a standard V-belt), will save thousands in annual maintenance expenses. By eliminating the potential for slippage, the use of a poly-chain actually reduces energy consumed. Elgin’s ESS-1450HD2 decanter centrifuge can be fitted with either a 52:1 or a 125:1 planetary gear box for dewatering applications.
