Pitless Drilling System Extends Fluid Life
October 1, 2012
Baroid Industrial Drilling Products’ SYSTEM 360 unit uses a combination of mechanical and chemical separation to improve the quality and increase the productive life of the drilling fluid.
By completely removing the problematic cuttings from just a fraction of the total drilling fluid volume, the SYSTEM 360 unit is able to actively maintain the desired average mud weight/density ~1.02-1.04 SG.
This unit needs to be operated only when regular mud weight checks indicate a steady rise in density. Mud weight is used to set thresholds at which users would be required to run the unit. Additionally, the SYSTEM 360 unit is equipped with a high-performance mud mixing system, which, when coupled with a suitable above-ground storage tank, can provide a complete closed-loop, pitless drilling fluid system.
