Strad offers three sizes of centrifuges in order to meet the needs of each unique solids control operation. Strad's centrifuge fleet consists of Alfa Laval Lynx 20's, Lynx 40's, Lynx 400's, Lynx 500's and 1488's. All of Strad's Lynx 20's, 40's, 400's and 500's feature VFD controls allowing virtually limitless operational parameters to suite a variety of conditions. The ability to accurately vary the speed of the bowl, conveyor and feed pump makes it possible to optimize the centrifuges' performance on a variety of drilling fluids throughout the drilling cycle. 1448 centrifuges are available in a variety of configurations including fixed drive models.

These different size bowls play a key role in top quality solids control processes by removing solids from different mud viscosities at variable speeds. The high speed decanting centrifuges also play a large part in the closed-loop system.
