Mobile Drying Unit Overview

TSOLN offers a unique, patent-pending mobile dryer unit (MDU) as a part of our drilling waste management services. The MDU consists of a specially modified WSM-03 cuttings dryer permanently fixed on a transport truck, with all fluid handling and electrical equipment incorporated on board.

This mobile concept allows TSOLN to service multiple rigs within a certain area and rigs with limited backyard space. This service can be priced on a footage basis and the customer will only be charged while processing; eliminating the cost of having a 24-hour cuttings drying operation on each rig. Dryers have proven to be the most effective process to maximize the recovery of OBM from drill cuttings and can help to reduce drilling waste by 50%
