The Vertical Cuttings Dryer makes its contribution with its innovative process after the shale shaker completes its task. Cuttings that pass over the shaker typically have an average of 30% to 50% ROC (Retention on Cuttings) when they enter the proprietary auger system and begin to cycle through the VERTI-G cuttings dryer. The initial processing is done with a vertical cutting dryer that utilizes centrifugal force to take advantage of their differing densities to separate the largest portion of the remaining drilling fluid from the cuttings. The processed cuttings are discharged from the vortex dryer into the adjacent shale bin, and then have an average ROC between 4% and 7% once processing is complete. This ROC percentage represents cuttings suitable for immediate disposal requiring minimal if any further stabilization. Processed waste material is lighter, less toxic and is a more cost-efficiency.

What is the newest technology in drilling waste treatment?

The main components of the drilling waste are cuttings, excess drilling fluids, hydrocarbons and water and are mostly categorized as hazardous waste. The disposal of these wastes are, in most locations around the world, highly regulated. The solids in the drill cuttings are usually separated and the cleaned off drill mud residue, as well as the produced water are usually cleaned at considerable costs.(drilling waste treatment)

drilling waste treatment equipment

The first step in managing drilling wastes is to separate the solid cuttings from the liquid drilling mud. Once solid and liquid drilling wastes have been separated, companies can use a variety of technologies and practices to manage the wastes. For some applications, drilling wastes are solidified or stabilized prior to their ultimate management practice. The management technologies and practices can be grouped into three major categories: waste minimization, recycle/reuse, and disposal.

The Following information is more about the drilling waste treatment equipment

Vertical Cuttings Dryer( Vertical Centrifuge) can perform solid/liquid separation through centrifugal separation. The vertical cuttings dryer can effectively recover the liquid phase in drilling cuttings, making the solid phase become very dry. It is suitable for water-base mud, oil-base mud and synthetic base mud. By recovering the mud in drilling cuttings, the vertical cuttings dryer can reduce the drilling cost and cut down environmental pollution. With handling capacity of 40-60 T/h, the oil on cuttings (OOC) of drilling cuttings can be reduced to lower than 5% (w/w) after treatment, meeting the international emissions standards and environmental protection requirements. The vertical centrifuge can also be applicable for drilling waste management in onshore and offshore drilling.

-DC Series Decanter Centrifuge is used in separating suspension of solids phase with particle ≥2μm in diameter for drilling mud and fluids handling.

-Screw Pump is an ideal pump used to feed drilling fluids to decanter centrifuge since drilling fluids is pushed to proceed along axial direction evenly. Therefore, the inner flow speed is kept low, volume unchanged and pressure stable so that vortex and agitation are prevented. Screw Pump is useful for wet mud drilling mud waste management and cuttings transportation.

Screw conveyor (Auger) can be used in drilling waste management projects, providing an effective and low-cost drilling cuttings transport system for offshore and onshore drilling rigs.

How does the vertical cutting dryer work?
The vertical cutting dryer uses solid forces generated through mechanical rotation to separate solids and liquids. The drilling chips enter the space between the sieve basket and the scraper through the feed port and the fabric cone, and the drilling fluid flows through the material layer and the sieve into the collection tank along the cap under centrifugal force. The fluid is then discharged from the outlet pipe on both sides and the solids remain in the basket.

Due to the difference in speed between the screw blade and the sieve basket, the screw blade cuts the solid from the basket and then pushes it to the bottom of the basket so that the dewatered solids are continuously discharged into the collection funnel. The liquid phase will be further processed by Decanter Centrifuge Kosun also has it availalbe.
