ANNOUNCING EMCO’S MASSIVE FLEET AND SERVICE EQUIPMENT EXPANSION
Continuing our #watchusgrow series, we are proud to announce the expansion of our Solids Control Division. (Management, removal and disposal of drilling waste during the entire drilling process)
EXPANDING FROM TWO RIGS TO SEVEN!
Emco’s early-stage Solids Control Division performed so well on our first two rigs over the last several months by exceeding expectations and saving our clients significant money, we have secured five more drilling rigs to manage their solids control. A big thank you to Josh Oliver, Emco Solids Control Sales, for kicking this awesome division off, being a great operator and now crushing it in Sales!).
We have negotiated to double our inventory of four high-powered centrifuges to a total of eight. A big thank you to Bo Leathers, Emco Solids Control Manager, for his R&D and travels to the manufacturer/distributor!
RAISING EQUIPMENT STANDARDS AGAIN
A critical piece of equipment used in solids control is half-round cutting bins. These half-rounds collect the drilling cuttings waste after the centrifuges spin out most of the drilling fluids that are recycled. The drilling cuttings are deposited into the half-round cutting bins. When the bins are full, Emco's end dumps are dispatched out to location for cuttings removal and disposal. Emco’s on-site solids control operator transfers the cuttings from the bins to our end dump trailers with a trackhoe. Many of the half-round fabricators cut corners by using flimsy 3/16" steel. The trackhoe bucket can easily damage the thin half-round steel, puncture holes and thereby reduce the useful life of the bins.
Consistent with our goal to be the absolute best and raise oilfield service and equipment standards industry-wide, we are excited to be fabricating our own 4 ft. and 6 ft. ultra-strong half-round cutting bins. We use 1/4” steel that is much stronger than 3/16” and can withstand normal bucket banging without damage. We have also created a dropped sump system that makes clean out fast and simple. Anyone that has cleaned out tanks can appreciate the new system because industry standard has a raised valve that is useless during a cleanout.
