CUTS BLOWER

CUTTING TRANSPORT SYSTEM

FEATURES
Commercial models. The CUTS System can be offered commercially as a rental, lease/purchase or purchase item(s).

Scalability. The CUTS Blower is scalable in size (LxWxH) and processing rate (MT/hr) and can be designed/manufactured to fit customer/project requirements or to adapt to (rig) space restrictions.

Environmentally sound design. Drill cuttings are contained into a closed system and isolated from personnel contact, then being discharged by compressed air, no requirement for electricity.

Flexibility. The CUTS Blower can be used to convey cuttings in a variety of applications, including filling Energized Cuttings Tanks and/or skips, feeding cuttings re-injection installations and cuttings dryers.

Ease of installation & use. The CUTS Blower runs automatically on a pneumatic timer that opens/closes valves, starts/stops air hammers in set sequences – fill and empty phases. The A CUTS Blower is a “plug & play” device, requiring only sufficient air supply and to be operated through a control box/panel mounted on the CUTS Blower frame.

BENEFITS

  • Scalability – can be designed & fabricated to fit customer/project specifications.
  • Compact design – saving valuable rig-floor space.
  • CUTS Blower moves a maximum amount of material with a minimum of equipment.
  • Closed system minimizes worker exposure to drilling fluids, moving parts and reduces slippery areas.
  • The CUTS Blower can be operated in Zone I hazardous environments with no modifications, providing maximum safety in an economical package.
  • Minimizes/eliminates personnel exposure to contaminated drill cuttings due to its closed system operation.

APPLICATION

The CUTS Blower is the first component of the CUTS System, receiving cuttings from shale shakers’ ditch/trough and conveying them to Energized Cuttings Tanks, skips or other destinations (onshore/offshore). A typical configuration includes one CUTS Blower, but either a second CUTS Blower in parallel or the CUTS Dual Blower model maybe required, where extremely high rates of WBM/SBM/OBM drill cuttings are anticipated. Rig surveys for installation and operational optimization purposes are essential, and ideally the
CUTS Blower is positioned/installed right underneath the shale shaker ditch/trough, alternatively augers might be used to feed the CUTS Blower. The blower is pneumatically operated.
