Vertical Cuttings Dryer

  • A Vertical Cuttings Dryer (VCD) is a type of equipment used in the drilling industry to treat drilling waste, specifically drill cuttings. Drill cuttings are generated during the drilling process and can contain hazardous materials such as oil, grease, and heavy metals. The VCD is designed to separate the drilling waste from the drilling fluid, allowing for the recovery of the drilling fluid and the safe disposal of the waste.

Detailed information

It uses centrifugal force to dry drilled solids in oil or synthetic base fluids. A stainless-steel screen bowl traps “wet” solids and accelerates them up 900RPM with G force to 420G or super high speed 1200RPM with G force to 750G. Liquid is forced through the screen bowl openings, while “dry” solids are extracted by the angled flights attached to the cone, which rotate slightly slower than the bowl. Tungsten carbide protects the flights from abrasive solids and ensures long operational life. This aids in maintaining a constant gap between the scroll and screen bowl, which is crucial for proper operation.



It is used for taking drilling fluids from the drilling cuttings. It is to maximize the recycling of drilling fluids, and minimize the drilling waste in order to save cost for operators.

1) For oil-based drilling cuttings, normally it can reduce the oil on the cuttings to 3% to 5%.

2) For water-based drilling cuttings, normally it can reduce the moisture content to below 50% which is easier for transport.

3) Recycling drilling fluids for reuse to save cost.

4) Reduce the drilling waste quantity to save money on the disposal or further treatment.
