What is Cool-Ox® Mud-Buster?

  • A process to treat drill cuttings
  • The first partial oxidation reaction creates amphiphilic (surfactants) molecules that facilitate the movement of water through the contaminated soil matrix.
  • The reduction in surface tension is phenomenal; from 74 dynes/cm (clear water) before treatment to 34 (surface tension of a saturated soap solution) after treatment.
  • If the material dries out after Cool-Ox® treatment, it doesn’t matter, the soap is still there and activated as the soil is wetted by rain water or artificially from wells.
  • The oxidation process may cease if the oxidizer is spent, but the bio factor should restart when the soil is again wetted.

Cool-Ox® Mud-Buster Reduces

  • The Need for Off-Site Disposal
  • Trucking Costs
  • Turn Around Time to apply the cuttings for land application
  • Man-power required
  • Handling Costs
  • Allows for the ability to receive more cuttings per week increasing Total Revenue
