The base of each HDD project is the drilling fluid, hence the phrase “a good start is half the work”.
Therefore the fluid systems (Mix, Pump and Recycling/Reclaiming system) are just as important as the drilling rig and only all units together will offer the optimal situation to complete your projects.
Recycling units / Reclaimers
In the beginning mainly used for larger projects, but nowadays used for small projects as well. Whether to save bentonite use, for environmental purposes or more efficient logistics; Recycling units / Reclaimers are used daily to close the loop between fluid pumped into the bore hole and retrieved from it. The recycling units / Reclaimers clean the bentonite by separating the solids from the drilling fluid using ao. shakers and hydro cyclones. These units reduce the solids percentage in the drilling fluid to less than 1% making it re-usable.
Recycling units / Reclaimers are electric driven and available from small mobile units up to large plants.
