No matter what centrifuge you have the oil must be heated either before centrifuging or during to dewater. Heat & settle or an inline heater. I prefer the inline heater cause flash heating allows to controlt the temp of the oil better & heat also provides better filtering. So if they are claiming that it will dewater as well as filter then I assume they have inline heater. I know the Raw Power centrifuge does.
I use the Raw power inline heater & am very pleased with it. For a centrifuge I use 2 ACME Juicerators. 1 draining into the other for better filtration & dewatering. I run mine at approx. 10 gallons per hour. For a prefilter I have 2 55 gallon barrels . I pour my oil through window screen & let it settle for a minimum 24 hrs. Longer the better of course. I do not heat the barrels. i have found it not to be necessary. I have drain valves in each approx. 8 inches from the bottom & presently put the oil into 5 gallon buckets & then pour the oil into my holding container mounted above the Juicers & gravity feed into them. I have the infamous Harbour Freight 1 inch clear water pump on order & will be installing that to fill my holding container from my barrels so I don`t have to be filling it by hand.This process produces oil that passes the HPT with no bubbles 90% of the time. If a batch does not pass I re run it. I have never had to make more the 2 passes.
I wouldn`t go to the expense of heating the oil in your prefiltering barrels unless you have problems with dewatering. Inline heating IMHO is the way to go.
