Pit Dry®

Stabilization and Solidification Agent

This revolutionary new application is the only one on the
market that converts spent drilling fluids into disposable, dumpable solids in
minutes. With this unique process, available only from CETCO Oilfield Services,
you simply pump spent fluid through one of our patented mixers, the PDM-300 or
the PDA-300, while adding our PitDry reagent.
PitDry is a powdered, inorganic mineral formula used for the solidification and
stabilization of drill fluids. PitDry chemically fixates heavy metal bearing wastes,
stabilizes hydrocarbons and other organic and inorganic material while minimizing
total solids volume by as much as 20%.
More efficient material handling translates to the elimination of liquid spill liability
and the inherent cost of dealing with variable liquid streams.

Application
Spent drilling mud can be a costly problem. By the time
you recover it, tanker it off-site, make certain it meets all environmental regulatory
requirements and pay tipping fees to dispose of it, it can be a very expensive and
time-consuming problem.
