A) Run both centrifuges in series as purifiers and increase 'shoot' cycles.
B) Maintain normal fuel oil throughput through both centrifuges functioning as clarifiers and increase the 'shoot' cycle of the two clarifiers.
C) Drain settling tank(s) and service tank more often only, and monitor reduction in water content.

it baffles me that you want to cut off removing water by placing one as a clarifier where a purifier would remove both solids as well as water from the fuel.
