Thermomechanical Cuttings Cleaner (TCC)

Baroid's Thermomechanical Cuttings Cleaner (TCC) unit is specially designed for the processing of oil contaminated drilling waste such as typical drill cuttings, slop-mud and spent drilling mud. Its mechanical action is applied directly to the drill cuttings via hammers that create friction which causes temperatures to rise above the boiling points of water and oil. Once these temperatures are reached, hydrocarbons are removed from the solids to an acceptable disposal limit (<1% oil on cuttings). The oil and water vapors that remain are then fed through the TCC condensing system and recovered in the form of recovered heavy oil, recovered light oil, and recovered water.


With the TCC, operators meet the majority of offshore discharge regulations globally. In fact, the only ones it doesn't meet are countries with zero discharge regulations. The low oil on cuttings ratio of <1% also ensures compliance to any onshore disposal methods.

Save costs. Save space. Save oil. Save time

Halliburton Baroid's TCC unit, used at the source of the drilling waste, can eliminate transportation costs, minimizes crane lifts associated with Skip and Ship operations, and reduces excessive manual handling improving HSE benefits over other thermal options. The TCC unit can be fueled by the recovered base oil and the recovered oil not used as fuel can be added back to the drilling mud for reuse. It has the smallest footprint for throughput (6MT/HR) in the market.
