Having some level of sand content in your reclaimers and drills is the unfortunate reality of horizontal directional drilling. Maintaining low levels of sand content is key, as pumping recycled drilling fluid with high sand content can lead to premature wear on and failure of tooling and components, resulting in increased cost and time to complete a job. Once you know the sand content levels on your jobsite, you can create a plan to better manage sand content levels. For many HDD professionals, that plan includes utilizing a reclaimer on the jobsite.
In this white paper, you’ll learn about:
- How sand affects HDD tooling
- How and when to test for sand
- How utilizing a reclaimer can help mitigate overall sand content
This paper can provide HDD professionals with detailed information to take steps towards mitigating sand content on their next jobsite.
