Vulcan® Drying Systems personnel commissioned a plant for a client in Nova Scotia to remediate oil-based drilling muds. The TDU's effort is aimed to reduce landfilling and to recycle valuable hydrocarbons. Control technology was designed around EPA standards to ensure no negative environmental impacts incur from running the system.

The system was designed to process 1.0 TPH of oil based drilling muds. The system uses no. 2 fuel oil.
