The advantage of APPLY’s Big Bag Slitter for Mud Additive Skids in the drilling industry is its integration into the dry chemical mixing part of a mud storage and circulation system.

Its main features are

  • dust limited operation during slitting of the bag by use of a flexible rubber band and a dedicated fan-filter system,
  • the use of exchangeable multi-pointed knives
  • and accurate feeding of the dry chemicals by a speed-controlled dosing conveyor.

The Big Bag Slitter consists of these main items:

  • Hopper supported on 4 rubber pads, and with holding capacity more than 1m3
  • Two knife sections bolted to the four corners of the hopper, with a total of 9 sharp tips
  • Four rubber bands encircling the hopper, exchangeable in order to fit all types of slim or fat sacks for dust free emptying
  • Fan-filter unit (see next page)
  • Electric vibrator with adjustable force, in order to fully empty the hopper
  • Manual knife valve for isolation
  • Dosing conveyor with electric speed-controlled motor
