Thermal Desorption Unit (Drill Cuttings, 10 TPH)
Location: Neuquen, Argentina
Vulcan® Drying Systems personnel commissioned a plant to a client in Argentina who plans to remediate drill cuttings and other contaminated soils in a mobile engineering lab in an indirect Rotary Thermal Desorption Unit with Vapor Recovery. This effort is aimed to reduce landfilling of drill cuttings and recycle diesel-based drilling fluids. Control technology was designed around EPA standards to ensure no negative environmental impacts from running the system.
The system was designed to process 10 TPH of drill cuttings. The system uses oil-fired burners.
