The professional treatment of drilling fluids is essential to guarantee the perfect drilling process while simultaneously adhering to the mandatory environmental protection requirements.
Drilling fluids and mud are a considerable potential hazard to the sensitive marine ecosystem when contaminated. Proper process treats contaminated fluids and mud for purified and unpolluted water to be discharged into the environment.
Drilling mud is an integral part of most drilling operations, acting as a lubricant to protect the drilling equipment and the property being drilled. The drilling mud enables the solids being bored to travel to the top of the hole while they are suspended in the fluid.
Petroleum Solids Control, Inc. can provide solid-liquid separation technology to your drilling mud application, enabling reuse of the material and more efficient and cost-effective disposal. Ruggedly built and skid mounted, decanter centrifuge units designed for oilfield and industrial solids control service, can be especially effective for barite recovery, drilling mud, solids control, and drilling fluid / mud cleaning and process water treatment.
Decanter centrifuges are used to process un-weighted and weighted, water-based and oil-based drilling fluids. Oilfield decanter centrifuges mechanically increase the gravitational force exerted on the liquid and solids mixture present in the mud system. Decanter centrifuges can apply over 3,000 G-forces to separate heavier solids from the lighter solids.
Petroleum Solids Control, Inc., located in California, is the largest provider of specialized solids, liquids and oil separation rental equipment on the west coast. Since 1956 we have been a family-owned and operated company. Over 65 years of experience has enabled us to become experts in providing our customers with tailored solutions for all their separation needs using mobile horizonal decanter centrifuges and tricanter centrifuges.
