KEMTRON 1000HDX Packaged Fluid Management System

Mud Reclaimer / Recycling System

Elgin is the leading manufacturer of effective fluid recycling systems.  The new KEMTRON 1000HDX is designed for drilling contractors with Maxi-Class rigs in the trenchless, water-well, geothermal, foundation drilling, and microtunneling industry.


The KEMTRON 1000HDX has one of the highest rated hydraulic cleaning capacity at an impressive 1,000 gallons per minute (63 lps) flow rate.  Utilizing two, dual-deck shakers, each with 56 sq. ft. (5.2 m2) of screening surface, providing for substantially more cleaning capacity when dealing with large bores.


Shaker performance is further enhanced with a single-point gear-driven jacking system, allowing the operator to adjust deck inclination as needed without tools or system shutdown.  High /low level tank sensors turn pumps on and off to protect from running dry and tank overload. In addition, The new KEMTRON 1000HDX features lift assist cylinders installed on each catwalk section for ease of operation when setting up the unit on site.


Combine all this with a 150kw generator package, 6,000 gallon (22,712 liters) tank capacity, onboard pressure washer, improved tank to tank transfer system, enhanced tank plumbing, and increased deck space, the KEMTRON 1000HDX™ packaged fluid reclaimer is the perfect solution for your solids control needs. Elgin is the only packaged system manufacturer that can fully integrate any one of its six different centrifuges into its mobile treatment systems.
