Dewatering unit is designed to reduce drilling waste disposal costs by processing drilling wastes and by recycling water, which can be re-used to mix drilling fluids, or for any other technical needs. The unit also converts large amounts of waste drilling fluids to a small volume of solids, thus significantly reducing associated waste disposal costs.
The Dewatering unit function is based on physical and chemical process of coagulation, when fine suspended particles in the treated fluid collide with each other and stick together, forming larger particles, which are further removed by the centrifuge. The unit treats drilling waste water, it recovers waste drilling fluids, and provides safe disposal of mud components in dedicated landfills.
For mobilization and installation purposes, the unit is integrated in the standard shipping container, which can be transported by any carriage, provided all appropriate transportation requirements are properly identified and met.
