CSI-D3™ Waste Cuttings Dryer


Elgin’s CSI-D3™ VCD brings direct-drive technology to the industry leading vertical cuttings dryer on the market.  Capable of processing oil-based or water-based waste without the need for a conversion kit at 25 to 40 tons per hour.  The CSI-D3 is the perfect solution for processing clay-based waste cuttings in today’s operations.

By incorporating a proprietary assembly that includes an alignment compensating drive shaft, greased for life 90 degree torque inverter, and the industry’s most durable and field-proven gear-box drive system, the CSI-D3 delivers power and performance when needed.
