As a standalone system or a supplement to rig shakers, the M-I SWACO OPTM-IZER solids control system is a mobile closed-loop unit engineered for land rigs not equipped to perform specialized solids-control operations and that do not require the capabilities while drilling the entire well.
The OPTM-IZER equips rigs for barite recovery, high-capacity processing, dewatering, and mud stripping to save time, labor, and installation costs. The system can be moved in, rigged up, and operating on location within two hours of arrival. Three processing modes include high-volume mode, dewatering mode—similar to high-volume mode but with additional chemical-injection capabilities—and barite recovery mode.
OPTM-IZER offers better solids removal to reduce dilution and waste volumes. Fully-variable speed centrifuge technology lowers the percentage of liquid on cuttings, while the entire OPTM-IZER package is fully contained to avoid any liquid or solid spills.
