Vermeer Introduces New Reclaimer for Large-Diameter Pipe HDD Projects

(UC) — Vermeer has launched a new reclaimer for the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) industry, designed for large-diameter pipeline installations. 

The R600T, 600-gallons-per-minute (2,271.3-L/min) mud recycling system can pair with maxi rigs pumping between 300 gallons per minute and 600 gallons per minute (1,135.6 L/min and 2,271.3 L/min) on pipeline and other large-diameter installation projects.

The R600T features a redesigned linear-motion shaker deck to help reduce weight, increase the available G-force and extend screen life.

Our latest reclaimer model, the R600T, offers excellent jobsite flexibility with its ability to work in conjunction with a range of maxi rig drill sizes,” said Adam Bates, Vermeer product manager for fluid management equipment.

The three-tank (scalped, middle and clean) R600T reclaimer has a total fluid capacity of 7,729 gallons (29,257.4 L), and can process 1,100 gallons per minute (4,163.9 L/min) of drilling slurry for a true cleaning capacity suited for HDD projects in the 600-gallons-per-minute (2,271.2-L/min) range.

The drilling slurry cycles through two 10-inch (25.4-cm) desanders and a desilter manifold with sixteen 5-inch (12.7-cm) desilters to remove sand and coarse material before being deposited onto the unit’s linear motion shaker decks.

The R600T can be configured with an onboard generator set or connected to another power source already on the jobsite.
