Drill pipe cleaning - Oil, Gas & Refineries - Oil

Problem: When scale and hardened mud build up in oil well drill pipe, plugged drill heads are the usual result. This reduces efficiency and increases downtime. Traditional rattle-and-brush systems can leave some build-up behind and require a rinse operation to flush debris and drilling fluids.

With 40,000 psi (2,800 bar) water jet systems from NLB, build-up disappears in a single pass, without a separate rinse operation. Drill pipe easily passes inspection and gets back into service sooner.

  • Complete removal of mud and scale
  • More productivity, less downtime
  • Systems tailored to your needs
  • Many rattle-and-brush systems can be converted
