KEMTRON Dewatering unit information

As the drilling industry is regulated by a myriad of environmental regulations that continue to
become increasingly more stringent, having the right solids control and dewatering equipment
has become vital to successful drilling operations. Dewatering presents a great deal of benefi ts
and advantages. One such benefi t includes discharge compliance, in which many cases result
in a “zero-discharge” or “closed-loop system.” Dewatering also maximizes drilling fl uid
recovery, ultimately lowering overall mud costs as well as disposal and transportation expenses.
Furthermore, with these systems, mud properties improve and as mud properties improve, so
too does the rate of penetration.

With a “zero-discharge” or “closed-loop system” rigs can
operate without mud pits, therefore reducing the location footprint and environmental impact.
For over 25 years, KEMTRON has been designing solids management and dewatering systems
for the most demanding environments. With this experience, KEMTRON has designed the
KT-DW-20, a 20’ Containerized Dewatering Unit. This unit was designed with the customer
in mind by being mobile and compact. Furthermore, it also incorporates sophisticated
graphical user interfaces, chemical additive injection systems, KT-1448 decanter centrifuge,
and in-line mixer systems. By utilizing proprietary polymer hydration manifolds, the polymer
enhanced fl occulation of colloidal and ultra-fi ne drilled solids can be effi ciently removed with a
KEMTRON decanter centrifuge.

This versatile unit can be customized by our engineering team to meet any specifi c needs
or challenges. It may be operated as a stand-alone device or can be incorporated as the
cornerstone of a sophisticated closed-loop solids control and waste management treatment
system. Systems can be climate controlled and insulated, upon request.
