NON ENTRY SYSTEMS NES 800 Range of Oil recovery Systems
Technical information and specifications
All of NES 800 range of Oil Recovery Systems operate the same principal of operation for the pre-treatment or conditioning of oil residues followed by the a 3 phase tri-canter centrifugal separation.
The larger units come in two modules, the first containing the pre-treatment unit and the second containing the centrifuge and other equipment depending upon the model. The large NES802 twin module unit is currently the largest of the range and is completely autonomous with the exception of a steam boiler.
In the first of the two modules the pre-treatment unit consists of three tanks. The first two tanks receive the input feed stock to be treated after first passing through an alternating filter basket system to remove any large debris that would damage of block the system. This can also be replaced with a shell-shaker if the input feed stock is of a quality that requires it. Whilst one of these tanks is being filled the second is being blended by paddles and / or resuspension together with heating via steam heating coils.
Chemicals can also be dosed into these tanks from the dosing tanks and mixers via their own dosing pumps. Once the contents of a tank have been conditioned to a suitable physical state for passing through the decanter then it is pumped to tank number three, which is the feed tank for the decanter.
An intricate pipework, valve and pump system enables different combinations of flow source, direction, and destination to be selected by the operator to cover any eventuality encountered. The twin polymer dosing and mixing tanks and pumps allow the dosing of polymers into the decanter inlet if required. All pumps and paddle mixers are hydraulically powered and the supply for these comes directly from the hydraulic power pack located in the module that contains the decanter.
Temperature and visual level indicators ensure the operator is in possession of of all the information he requires to operate the unit.
The second module houses 2 diesel driven hydraulic power packs built to NES usual safety specifications for hydraulic power packs. (Refer to NES 402 range of hydraulic power packs). It also houses the 2 Tri-canter centrifuges. The centrifuges are fed from the pre-treatment unit and the output of 1- water is piped to the water settling tank also housed in the same unit 2- the recovered oil piped into a separate recovered oil tank and 3-the sediments discharged onto a conveyor belt that discharges directly into a truck or skip for transport away from the site.
Both the Tri-Canter centrifuges can be operated together or either one operated alone.
Oil recovery using Horizontal three phase decanters
Operation: - With the bowl spinning at 3,000 rpm the feed slurry is fed through a fixed central pipe into the distributor located in the scroll. The product is accelerated smoothly to bowl speed as it passes through the feed ports in the scroll into the bowl.
Separation takes place in the conical cylindrical bowl when he slurry forms a rotating liquid tube under the centrifugal force caused by the bowl rotational speed. The solids in the slurry are deposited against the bowl wall and the remaining liquids separate into a light and heavy phase giving three concentric layers held against the bowl by centrifugal force.
The scroll is rotating at a differential speed to that of the bowl and conveys the separated solids in the direction of the conical end of the bowl. The length of time the solids remain in the bowl is an important factor in determining the dryness of the final solids discharge. The residence time can be adjusted by changing the differential speed of the scroll in relation to the bowl.
The separated solids are discharged through openings at the conical end of the bowl into a fixed discharge housing and then down the discharge chute.
While the liquid phases are being clarified they progress to the cylindrical end of the bowl where they are decanted through separate discharge systems to prevent cross-contamination.
The lighter phase is normally discharged under gravity whilst the heavier phase is removed under pressure by the variable pitch impeller. By altering the impeller during operation the clarity of the two liquid phases can be optimised.

for continuous adjustment of bowl- and scroll differential speed as well as for control of scroll diff. Speed (from 3 to 22 min-1 during operation and under load.
This variant of drive makes a slow start-up of the machine possible without the high electric starting current, which is required otherwise, and also almost constant dryness of the solids with heavy fluctuating solids contents in the inflow. At the same time the machine is protected against overload and clogging, including Parker double pump (variable displacement type), and air-cooled heat exchanger for hydraulic oil.
