The BARKEEPER™ is a patented centrifugal separator designed to process weighted drilling fluids at the highest possible rates and with maximum efficiency. The BARKEEPER™ recovers as much as 100% of the barite in weighted drilling fluids. The barite is returned to the active mud system, while decanting centrifuges can be used to discard the low gravity drill solids.
A dual gradient, deep water drilling system based on dilution of riser mud requires economically separating the riser mud into a low-density dilution fluid and a higher density drilling fluid. The BARKEEPER™ can be used in combination of 250 GPM/ 925 LPM modules to achieve economical separation of the mud into low density and high density streams with superior rheological properties as compared to centrifuges.
