- Hydrated clay removal via inclined conveyor
- Variable speed drive
- Counter-rotating cleaning brush
- Processing rates up to 1500 gpm
Capable of screening drilled solids to levels as fine as 30 mesh, the Flo-Line Primer replaces both the "gumbo chain" and traditional scalping shaker. The Flo-Line Primer uses a conveyor screen to remove large drilled cuttings and hydrated clays from drilling fluid. Shakers with finer screens may then be used earlier in the process, leading to lower dilution and operating costs. The machine is available in two models: Flo-Line Primer 200, which is capable of processing up to 1200 GPM and the Flo-Line Primer 258, which is capable of processing up to 1500 GPM .
The Primer's conveyor screen is driven by a variable-speed 1.5 HP motor and direct gear drive. The variable-speed motor allows capacity of the standard unit to be increased to 1200 GPM . A long-life conveying screen, available in 5, 10, 20, or 30 mesh, permits control of capacity, cuttings dryness, and cut point. A built-in bypass allows the Primer to be taken off line when scalping and/or gumbo removal is not required.
