Digging in the sand: Mitigating sand damage to HDD tooling

On large-diameter horizontal directional drilling (HDD) projects, maintaining fluid properties prescribed by the mud plan is key to maximum efficiency, and managing sand content is an important element of adhering to the mud plan.

Failing to maintain a low percentage of sand content in your drilling fluid when recycling can lead to premature wear and failure of tooling and components, resulting in increased cost and time to complete a job.

In this paper, you will learn how sand can negatively impact your equipment, how and when to test for sand, and how to mitigate it on your job site.
