Vertical Cuttings Dryer

Vertical cuttings dryer holding high efficiency separation on drilling fluid and it will minimize drilling cuttings content in drilling fluids. The cuttings dryer decrease disposal percentage benefit much on “0” disposal application. Separate drilling mud recycling by solids control system effectively. Recycle the lost mud caused by equipment failure, etc. The common spare parts are easy to be replaced. The wolfram carbide alloy knives on cones are changeable also minimize the whole device failure.

The Vertical Cuttings Dryer uses centrifugal force to dry drilled solids in 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 to pass 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.
