In last month, we have delivered the slurry oil recovery unit to Indonesia and as the schedule; we will arrange our sales Rep and engineers to Indonesia and start the work of installation and test. In this post, we will share some necessary information about the topic of why Tricanter Centrifuge is the necessary part for oil recovery unit.
Not like the solid control system and drilling waste management unit, the oil recovery unit is usually used to separate the oil based mud; while the solid control system series is just used to separate the drilling solids to improve the whole working efficiency; and the drilling waste management unit is usually used for drying the drilling solids so that to prevent the drilling fields’ pollution. Of course, among the three systems, there are some necessary items playing an important role in the working progress. For example, we will use horizontal vacuum degasser and mud cleaner together in solid control system to separate the drilling gas, mud and sand from the drilling solids; we will use vertical cutting dryer and shale shaker (with its main part – KS steel shaker screen) in drilling waste management to dry the drilling solids so that we could protect the drilling environment.
While for oil recovery unit, the main parts contain trianter centrifuge, centrifugal shear pump, screw pump & sand pump; camping tank, and heating mixing hopper, etc.; among the whole equipment, tricanter centrifuge is the most important one for SOR. Why does the tricanter centrifuge be the most important one for SOR?
Before we answer this question, we should know the target of the whole system. Generally speaking, we should use oil recovery unit to separate the oil based mud system, which contains water, mud and oil usually. Commonly, if we use two phase centrifuge to separate this kind solid, we could not separate the oil from the solids, in another word, this is a kind of waste and it is not a way of eco-friendly. Therefore, we should use three phase centrifuge, which is also called tricanter centrifuge. This item could help us to separate the drilling mud, water and oil from the oil based mud or oil based drilling solids. That’s why we should use tricanter centrifuge in the oil recovery unit.
As the original and professional manufacturer of solid control equipment and system, there is more than one item in our product lines. In 2015, we improved our high frequency vibrating screens for a higher working ability and working efficiency. Besides, you could also find the solid control items here, such as decanter centrifuge in VFD style, drilling mud tank for both solid control system and drilling waste management, etc. All spare parts for our own equipment and systems are all available for you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any interesting and comments about our tricanter centrifuge and related solid control equipment, your any inquiry will be responded at the first time.
