The TCC® (Thermo Mechanical Cutting Cleaner) converts kinetic energy to thermal energy in a thermal desorption process that efficiently separates and recovers the components of drilling waste whilst preserving the original quality of the components prior to treatment. As a result the recovered base oil can for example be re-used in new Oil Based Mud (OBM) or as fuel for diesel engines, whilst the cleaned solids have various industrial uses, such as a substitute for chalk in asphalt

Although the principles of the heat transfer may appear rather simple, it is not straight forward to design the best functional process mill. The TCC® is now truly proven and accepted in the market for drill cuttings. We are proud to say that our TCC®  is considered to be the Best Available Technology (BAT) and Best Environmental Practise (BEP) in our segment by the world's leading operators and service providers in the oil and gas industry.

Application areas

The TCC® can be applied for the following areas:

  • Drill cuttings
  • Drilling mud
  • Tank bottom sludge (High temperature TCC®)
