Vertical Cuttings Dryers

GN offers vertical cuttings dryers (VCD) for the effective drying of drill cuttings, recovery of drilling fluid and reduction of waste for disposal.

In the case of OBM drill cuttings, OOC (oil-on-cuttings) can be consistently reduced to below 5% and for WBM, volumes can be reduced for easy transportation and disposal.

The VCD uses a stainless steel screen bowl which traps “wet” solids and accelerates them up to 900RPM (420G) or 1200RPM (750G).

Liquid is forced 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.

Throughputs of 30-50Ton/Hr can be achieved and ATEX Zone 1 and 2 configurations are available.
