At the beginning of New Year’s work, WestPetro would like to start from the new designed drilling waste management equipment – cutting dryer, which is the core part for whole drilling waste management, and it has wined a popular appreciation from our partners and end users. Even though we have got a good feedback from the marketing, we still suffered some problems during the onsite working time. In this post, we will share some information about the importance of vertical cutting dryer in the whole drilling waste management unit.
Frankly to say, this is a good question. If we want to know the reason we need cuttings dryer for our oil drilling fields, we should learn its function or role in the whole drilling work. In another word, we should know what this item could bring to our oil drilling project.
No the same with some solid control equipment, such as horizontal vacuum degasser, QJ mud cleaner and shale shaker in linear motion and balanced type, vertical cutting dryer is the core part for drilling waste management system, it is commonly used to dry the drilling solids into dry sand or dry solid. About the final materials from the vertical cutting dryer please check the following video and I am sure you will learn it more clearly.
It’s important for us to learn the working flow of vertical cutting dryer in the whole drilling waste management unit. Generally speaking, the whole cuttings dryer’s working flow contains two parts: transporting the solids and drying the solids.
Before we start the work of drying the solids, we should feed the drilling solids into the steel bowl shaker screen of cutting dryer, which is a kind of special designed and made shaker screen in steel, it is different from KS steel shaker screen or polyurethane shaker screen (it is the main part for high frequency vibrating screens). Commonly, we should use centrifugal screw conveyor or auger to transport the solids into the cutting dryer. In some special situation, we should use shear pump to cut the solids into small sizes so that they could be transported easily and better. From the following picture, we could get the full view of drilling waste management system and we could get the cutting dryer’s role.
Besides vertical cuttings dryer, there are VFD decanter centrifuge, centrifugal sand pump, drilling mud tank, and control cabinet in whole drilling waste management. As the professional solid control system manufacturer, WestPetro could provide all solid control items and new items (such as tricanter centrifuge) for your mutual demands in oil drilling fields. Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments on vertical cutting dryer or related solid control equipment, your any inquiry will be highly appreciated.
