Thermal Desorption Unit (Drill Cuttings, 5 TPH)

Location: Port Harcourt, Nigeria


Vulcan® Systems commissioned a plant to a client in Nigeria who plans to remediate drill cuttings through an indirect Rotary Thermal Desorption Unit with Vapor Recovery. The effort aims to reduce pollution of the Earth and recycle diesel based drilling fluids. Control technology was designed around EPA standards in order to ensure no negative environmental impacts occur from running the system.

The system was designed to process 5 TPH of drill cuttings. The system uses No. 2 fuel oil and recovered oil from the remediation process, providing a self-sufficient solution to the client.
