Bulk Barite Unit

SECURE Energy Services’ bulk barite unit is a portable system that is ideally suited for weighting up drilling fluid systems at any drilling site. The bulk barite system is unique to the WCSB as it can handle bulk barite via pneumatic trailers using silos for storage or bulk via totes. The system is skid mounted and fits on one truck load, including bulk totes of barite.

The bulk barite system includes but is not limited to:

  • 50HP/480 CFM blower, std 3 wire/4 pole connector requires 480 volt/3 phase power
  • Admix tank feeder runs off 110 V power
  • Admix tank stand with adjustable height  
  • Admix tank 1 MT capacity
  • Cutting bottle 1.5 MT capacity
  • 2 x 40 MT silo

Set up 1: A bulk barite system with a tote bag cutter system starts when a cutting bottle cuts the super sack open and then, using a blower, blows the barite either into the upright silo or the admix tank. The admix tank has a weight cell and a variable speed drive paddle so when plumbed into the mud roll, a known amount of barite can be added to the system.

Set up 2: A bulk barite system delivered in bulk trucks arrives to the location and unloads the bulk barite into an upright 40 MT silo(s). When barite is required in the drilling process, the blower moves the barite from the silo to the admix tank, which has a weight cell and a variable speed drive paddle so when plumbed into the mud roll, a known amount of barite can be added to the system.
