Construction Fluid Reclaimers

Foundation Drilling / Diaphragm Walls / Microtunneling


Today's construction industry focuses a great deal on underground drilling and support systems. These processes typically use drilling fluid or slurry techniques. Packaged mud recycling systems are designed to minimize solids waste for disposal and effectively clean drilling fluid and slurry for active reuse.


Foundation Drillers utilize drilling fluids for stability of holes during operation. Mud reclaimers process the used drilling fluid for continuous use downhole and creates less solids waste.


A diaphragm wall is constructed using a narrow trench excavated in ground and supported by an engineered fluid (typically a bentonite mud) until the mud is replaced by the permanent material.


In most microtunneling operations a a lubricant, often bentonite slurry, is injected into this gap. In addition to lubrication, the pressure of the lubricant prevents the gap from collapsing.


Elgin's complete line of packaged mud reclaimers provide operators with the flexibility and dependability to effectively process product fluid.
