FEATURES

The HISIDE Blender unit is an example of scientific theory and practical engineering meeting to create the next evolution of mix-on- the-fly technology.

In offshore drilling, precise fluid density and rheological control are much too important to be left to a mix-on-the-fly unit that may not be doing its job. M-I SWACO engineers, using advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling, have proven that this is often the case. With the aid of CFD, M-I SWACO has designed and engineered the HISIDE Blender unit as the answer to the question of accuracy and speed in mix-on-the-fly operations. Capitalizing on a unique combination of baffle geometry, exhaustive design and patented 1 , Westfall^ static mixers; the HISIDE Blender unit delivers efficient cut-back of WBM and effective shearing of OBM, ensuring downhole stability, emulsion quality and rapid supply- boat turnaround.

How It Works

The HISIDE Blender design ensures turbulent flow in both the seawater and drilling-mud inlet lines by the use of baffles which are positioned to direct the heavy fluid to commingle with the seawater. As a result, both the seawater and drilling mud enter the 8-in. (DN200) mixing body and begin mixing immediately, despite the natural tendency for the higher-density fluid to channel through the lower-density fluid. The sudden volume change in the primary mixing chamber changes the fluids’ velocity and allows for a longer residence time which promotes further mixing.

As the partially mixed fluid exits the 8-in. (DN200) mixing zone into the 6-in. (DN150) discharge, recirculation zones are created. Within the 6-in. (DN150) outlet, these recirculation zones are optimized as the flow encounters each of the Westfall static mixers. Aside from mixing, the static mixers have sheared the fluid with calculated shear rates on the order of 4350 s 1 , which is significantly higher than competing technologies. As a result of this design, operators can be confident that a homogenous fluid is discharged from the unit.
