A mathematical model of the transport of sedimented solids within a decanter centrifuge has been developed. The primary purpose of the model is to calculate the power, torque and axial force required for the scroll to transport the solids along the bowl. The model is presented in a non-dimensional form and the procedure for implementing the model is included. The model is compared to test data from an existing publication; there was good agreement between the model and data. Example results are presented in the form of graphs to illustrate the influence of key parameters. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
