Why Solids Control

Minimizing Solids Lowers Cost

Solids Control is often taken for granted, but in fact the quality and efficiency of solids control equipment makes a positive difference in drilling fluid performance and cost.

Minimizing solids content in the fluid is a smart investment:

  • Lower dilution rates
  • Reduced additive/flocculant costs
  • Superior hole cleaning
  • Hole lubricity
  • Improved hydraulics
  • Better ECD control
  • Reduced solidification and disposal

operational areas


Extensive in-house testing capabilities allow us to quickly diagnose and fix issues, ultimately resulting in lower downtime for operators. 

Our in-house PSA (Particle Size Analysis) machine enables us to determine the size of the particulate suspended in the mud and ensure compliance with industry tolerances at all times. This in-house capability allows our teams to quickly fine-tune the solids control approach, maximizing drilling efficiency.
