Solids Control Services

Solids Control Services

Solids Control Services (SCS) specialises in the supply of high quality decanter-centrifuge based systems and associated contracting services, applicable to a broad spectrum of solids control and separation applications on a worldwide basis. New and ever increasing environmental legislation increases the importance of employing efficient and reliable methods to meet waste reduction and minimisation targets. Using SCS systems for the treatment of waste streams, whether from drilling operations or industrial processes, can render the constituents of those waste streams suitable for re-use, thereby reducing adverse environmental impact and the costs associated with waste disposal.
