Izhevsk Plant of Rimera Group Delivers Extra-Capacity Mixing Units to Surgutneftegaz

The plant started serial production of US-50x20DS units in late 2012. Pilot tests were also conducted at Surgutneftegaz fields. With cement bin capacity increased to 20 m3, the unit is designed for transporting dry powders (cement, plug mixes, etc.) within the wellsite, delivering a mechanically proportioned supply of these materials via screw conveyors, and preparing cement slurry for oil and gas well cementing.
The capacity of this model of special machinery exceeds the capacity of cement bins of the previous generation of mixing units manufactured by Izhneftemash. The use of US-50x20DS makes it possible to reduce the number of machinery units at remote fields and translates into significant savings of oil and gas well service costs. The unit can be transported by helicopter sling load.
The transmission of the skid-mounted modification of US-50x20DS is fitted with a two-speed transfer gearbox. This is the first time that the Izhevsk plant has implemented this technical solution. The two speeds provide a wider range of adjustment of the supply of bin contents, minimize the risk of transmission and conveyor screw breakage due to density irregularities in cement and plug mixes. Another distinctive feature of US-50x20SD is a unit control cab taken from the serially manufactured truck GAZ 3307.
Total shipments of specialized machinery to Surgutneftegaz in the 9 months of 2013, including this delivery, have exceeded by 57% the volume of all 2012 deliveries to Surgutneftegaz.
