Product Sheet: DRILL BEAD Recovery Unit

The ALPINE DRILL BEAD Recovery Unit is designed to minimize the amount of ALPINE DRILL BEAD particles lost to surface solids-control equipment, eliminating costly and repetitive additions of drill beads to the mud system. Without a recovery unit, the majority of drill beads would be removed from the circulating system at the shale shakers.

Alpine has designed a system that meets strict industry guidelines for safety, minimizes the amount of personnel required and provides an efficient recovery method. Utilizing the BRU (Bead Recovery Unit), all cuttings and solids removed at the rig shaker are transported to a second set of shakers where drill solids and waste material are separated from the drill beads, and are discharged to the waste stream, while the drill beads are recovered and returned to the suction pit.
