OFFSHORE POWDER TECHNOLOGY: UPGRADING FOR GREATER EFFICIENCY AND SAFETY

Several hundreds of tons of various materials in powder form are taken out to offshore drilling and production platforms to be mixed up to form drilling fluids or 'muds'. These materials present a number of problems of transport, handling, metering, and control. Improved techniques derived from powder technology operations in the process control industry can reduce costs and wastage, save transport time and storage space, and improve the work environment in platform mud-rooms.
