Drilling Cutting Votex Dryer/ Vertical Cuttings Dryer

Product Introduction

The vertical cuttings dryer is aimed to reduce the liquid content of drill cuttings which is safe to discharge to the environment or as preparation for bio-remediation. The typical discharge criteria is expressed as Oil on Cuttings (OOC) or Retained Oil on Cuttings (ROC).

All of our dryers are designed with the dual purpose of reducing waste volumes and recovering fluids. We can help lower your ROC levels to acceptable discharge limits to reduce or eliminate your waste transportation costs. For zero-discharge environments, the lower oil-on-cuttings means less utilization of expensive off-site treatment or disposal, and recovered fluid can help offset final disposal costs.

During drilling operations, the cuttings dryer has proven to reduce oil content to less than 5%, by weight. Its high capacity design is well suited for virtually all drilling conditions. The recovered liquid is typically processed with a decanting centrifuge for additional polishing.The cuttings dryer can also capture and return valuable drilling fluids from the mud losses of the shakers. The returned fluids can be pumped back to the active mud system.
