On-the-Fly (OTF) Mixer
High performance plus portability for offshore operations
The On-The-Fly (OTF) Mixer is a highly portable piece of equipment specially designed by Halliburton to provide a continuous, high-volume, high flow-rate blend of seawater, riserless drilling fluid, and (when necessary) brine. Its exceptional design allows it to be broken down easily into component parts and transported to its point of operation by a single person. The OTF’s small footprint, light weight, and unitized construction also enable safer assembly and operation.
When conducting riserless drilling, where fluid cannot be re-circulated, the OTF helps ensure a homogeneous and steady-state flow of consistent properties and weight. It is capable of blending fluid and seawater at rates of up to 2,000 gallons per minute.
The OTF produces consistent and even mixing, while maintaining the fluid’s physical properties. It also helps reduce the risk of “light” spots in the hole section and fluid wasted through disproportionate blending.
Maintains consistency and makes for a safer environment too
To keep blending exact, the OTF Mixer can be installed with an online density measurement, which is adjustable, and results in drilling fluids mixed to the precise densities required for logistical challenges associated with riserless drilling. Operators are provided with consistent performance through a range of products and flow-rates. Plus, the unique design and construction of the OTF helps reduce the risk of personal injury.
For thorough, high-performance fluid blending, with a safer, lighter, more portable piece of equipment, consider Halliburton’s On-The-Fly Mixer for your riserless drilling applications.
