Air conditioner cooling system for drilling waste decanter centrifuge VFD panel

There are many different types of explosion proof VFD control panel for drilling waste decanter centrifuge variable frequency drive (VFD) control panel. But fewer company can make VFD panel with air conditioner system.

Other types of explosion proof VFD control panel:

1) The most normal and the cheapest one is flame proof type VFD control panel. Strictly speaking, the flame proof control panel is not suitable for VFD control panel like for centrifuges. It is not good for performance on cooling. It is not suitable for hazardous environment. But as it costs lower and easy to make, when the jobsite does not have high requirement on VFD panel type, and they only want one for running, flame proof panel may be used. Mostly, small companies make flame proof type VFD panel.

decanter centrifuge-22) Another type is positive pressurized VFD control panel. It is confirms with IEC/EX or ATEX standard. It is compact in design and suitable for high temperature area. It is the most popular design for drilling waste centrifuge VFD control panel. It is used together with air source for explosion proof and for self cooling.

3) Air conditional cooling system for drilling waste decanter centrifuge VFD panel is the relative high standard. Fewer companies can make this design, especially in China. GN Solids Control is one of the few companies who have the ability to design and make Air conditional cooling system for drilling waste decanter centrifuge VFD panel.

Advantages of Air conditioner cooling system for drilling waste decanter centrifuge VFD panel:

Firstly, as it is equipped with air conditioner it is not need to connect with the extra air source.

Secondly, it is more suitable for hazardous environment, like for the very cold weather or the very hot weather.

And the Air conditioner cooling type VFD control panel for drilling waste management decanter centrifuge is more suitable for the offshore drilling rigs. As in offshore drilling rigs, the temperature is normally high and the air is high moisture, it is not suitable for pressurized VFD panel.
