One of the primary applications of industrial centrifuges are as diesel centrifuge or fuel polishing centrifuge for Diesel Fuel and Heavier Fuel Oils. In-fact Dolphin Centrifuges started as Dolphin Marine when is was exclusively catering to the marine centrifuge market. Dolphin has supplied centrifuges for:
- Marine or #2 Diesel or MDO or Gas Oil Polishing
- Fuel Oil or HFO or Bunker Fuel Purification
- Lube Oil Purification / Engine Oil Purification
- Diesel Oil Separator
Centrifuge capacities from 2 to 60+ Gallons/min are used based on the specific application and type of fuel/oil. Dolphin centrifuge has all available capacity
centrifuges in stock ready for quick turn-around and delivery.
Diesel fuel and lube oil are routinely contaminated by water (condensate) and
solids (rust and other debris from storage tanks). Marine centrifuges are a
economical way to remove these contaminants on a on-going b
asis without the need for costly filter media.
Other related uses are for bunker fuel or HFO or diesel fuel recovery systems
in fuel tank farms supplying to marine vessels. Diesel polishing centrifuges are often
used in marine terminals to keep the stored fuel in clean/dry condition.
Some advantages of using a Centrifuge:
- Longer cycle life for lube oils
- Reliable and efficient operation of engines with polished fuel
- Fewer changes of Fuel Filters
- Eliminates the need for lube oil changes
