Drill Pipe Enviro-Cleaners
Corporation is proud to announce the Drill Pipe Enviro Cleaner™
(DPEC™) which is an exciting new patent-pending process that
will clean the outside of drill pipe, cable, and other down hole tools
as they are extracted from the well. This process utilizes Sioux’s
industry-leading steam cleaning equipment and a steam collar to remove
dirt, oil, drilling mud, and paraffin at the well head during the
the well head will help in many ways including:
1. Safer handling of clean pipe rather
than pipe covered with oil and drilling mud. This will make a safer
working environment and reduce potential injuries or hazards
2. Eliminates the need to clean the
pipe off site. This will allow inspection of the pipes on site,
eliminating the extra step of transporting the pipe to an offsite
location for cleaning and inspection.
3. The process is completed during
extraction of the pipe and tools so an additional crew does not need to
spend time after cleaning these parts.
4. This reduces the risk of
contaminating the surrounding soil or highways during material transport
reducing costly litigation and hazardous clean up costs.
5. Using steam to clean is an
environmentally friendly process because the use of chemicals/detergents
is eliminated or greatly reduced, and steam cleaners use less water and
have a lower electrical requirement than alternative methods.
