Vertical Cuttings Dryer

Are you looking to better manage waste cuttings treatment for your operation utilizing a Vertical Cuttings Dryer?  Elgin is your one-stop-shop for complete VCD turn-key solutions.  Elgin’s Vertical Cuttings Dryer continues to be the industry choice as the most reliable and efficient solution when dealing with waste cuttings.  We have brought together the industry’s leading specialists in the engineering, design, manufacture, commissioning, and servicing of VCD’s.  No other company in the industry has sold more or serviced more vertical cuttings dryers.

In addition to the CSI–03™ & CSI–04™ VCD (formerly the WSM-03™ & WSM-04™), Elgin has designed the industry’s first, and patented, dual-drive cuttings dryer.  The CSI-D Series allows operators the ability to adjust the performance of the dryer based on the nature of the solids that are being fed to it.  Operators can adjust both the applied G-force and the dwell time between the scraper flites and the screen.   This technology allows the CSI-D Series Vertical Cuttings Dryer to be used in both oil-based and water-based drilling fluid environments with no need for conversion.  Elgin’s CSI-D4™ is the first and only vertical cuttings dryer capable of processing waste cuttings with a Class 1 – Division 1, explosion proof, air cooled control panel.

Most Recognized and Reputable Vertical Cuttings Dryer used in the Oil & Gas Industry

There have been more than 850 CSI™ VCD’s delivered to the market.  Every major solids control & waste management service provider in the market operate CSI™ dryers (Including, but not limited to Baker Hughes™, Halliburton™, M-I Swaco™, Weatherford™, Ava / Tervita™, Diamond-T™, and NOV™)*.

Introducing the new CSI™ E-Series Vertical Cuttings Dryer

Elgin has evolved the industry leading CSI-03™ and CSI-04™ cuttings dryer with the introduction of the CSI-E3™ and CSI-E4™ VCD.   This new design removes the active lubrication system and replaces the traditional gearbox with an oil-sealed gearbox for increased performance and less downtime.

Introducing the new CSI™ D-Series Vertical Cuttings Dryer

Elgin’s CSI™ D-Series Vertical Cuttings Dryers are the world’s first, patented, dual-drive dryer.  This novel technology allows operators the ability to adjust the performance of the dryer based on the nature of the solids being fed to it.  Using a combination of proprietary gear boxes, operators can adjust both the applied G-force and the dwell time between the scraper flites and the screen.  This technology allows the VCD to be used in both oil-based and water-based drilling fluid environments.
