Drilling waste cuttings dryer of Aipu solids control

Drilling waste cuttings dryer is usually vertical type cutting dryer. It can be used in oil sludge treatment, or the waste management. Aipu solids control produce high quality cuttings dryer

It can be called the environmental-protection equipment. As cuttings dryer is widely used in waste management and oil sludge treatment for on shore and offshore O&G drilling. They do help us much on circumstance recovery and recycling useful materials

Vertical cuttings dryer uses centrifugal force to decrease liquids content in drilled solids on oil or synthetic base fluids. A stainless steel screen bowl traps “wet” solids and accelerates them up 900RPM with G force to 420G. Liquid is forced through the screen bowl openings, while “dry” solids are extracted by the angled flights attached to the cone, which rotate slightly slower than the bowl. Tungsten carbide protects the flights from abrasive solids and ensures long operational life. This aids in maintaining a constant gap between the scroll and screen bowl, which is crucial for proper operation

How to set up cuttings treatment system?

We suggest shale shaker, mud cleaner, auger conveyor, cuttings dryer, collection tank, screw pump and decanter centrifuge. The flow line is from the shale shaker to mud cleaner. After processed by 2 steps equipment, the cuttings will be transferred to auger conveyor. After processed by cuttings dryer, the solid will exit from dryer bottom enter into collection tank. Then recovered liquid will be routed to a liquid tank.

Then screw pump will transfer recovered liquid to centrifuge as final purification. Storing it and achieve reuse.

Aipu cutting dryer features

Strength including high G force up to 420G. Larger diameter sized 930mm. Bearing is FAG brand premium bearing.  Flights of rotor is hard facing to HRC65, longer service life and reliable enough. Flights and rotor assembly is individually balanced for future replacement or maintenance

High quality S.S screen basket ensure better performance and longer working life. Screen will be individually balanced for future replaces. Screen is separately designed without change frame to replace spare screen. High pressure air knife designed to clean screening basket automatically to avoid blocking, especially when the mud is high viscosity or water based mud.

VFD control is optional for you. And it is pressurized explosion proof. Components utilized in are mainly ABB, Schneider, or Siemens brand. The ATEX or other certification is available upon requirement.
