As our industry evolves, we are faced with increasing responsibility to protect the environment in which we operate. Concurrently, government agencies continue to increase pressure toward achieving these goals by placing stringent effluent limitations on the discharge of contaminated drill cuttings to the environment. Elgin has become the leading manufacturer of rugged and easy to use CSI™ Vertical Cuttings Dryer (“VCD”) to support the goals of both the industry and regulators.
CSI™ is the industry’s most recognized & reputable Vertical Cuttings Dryer Centrifuge available in the market. No other brand has achieved more success or recovered more drilling fluid, than the CSI™ dryer. There have been almost 800 CSI™ dryers delivered to the market. Every major solids control & waste management service provider in the market operate CSI™ dryers (Including, but not limited to Baker Hughes™, Halliburton™, M-I Swaco™, Weatherford™, Ava / New Park™ and NOV™).
Typical flow-line shaker cuttings maintain a liquid content on average between 15% to 20%. When properly managed, the CSI™ series dryers can lower the liquid content below 4%, in some cases down to 1%. This can be done while managing up to 80 tons per hour (22.22 kg/s) of drill cuttings.
