The drilling mud flowing back under high pressure from the drilling well is held and monitored in the trip tank. This drilling mud is contaminated with sea water, rocks and sand. In addition to materials like rocks and sand, residues of oil and gas are also present. The built-in level measuring system provides feedback about down-well conditions, basic data for comparing the quantity of drilling mud fed into the wellbore with that returned, as well as regulating mud production.
Reliable measurement, independent of the characteristics of the drilling mud
Maintenance-free and accurate determination of mud usage
Simple installation and setup
Level measurement with radar in the trip tank
- Reliable measurement ensured even with varying drilling mud composition
- Exact measuring results, independent of pressure, temperature and gas
- Maintenance-free operation thanks to non-contact measurement method
