Lone Pine Supply sawdust comes from clean, untreated, kiln-dried wood, with the moisture content typically running between 5 and 12%.
Sawdust is the most economical and readily available Lost Circulation Material choice for mud engineers and is the preferred product for use as an absorbent and deck clean-up on drilling rigs. Agricultural applications for sawdust exist in its use as an ammonia-control absorbent bedding for livestock such as hogs and horses.
Our sawdust originates as clean, untreated, kiln-dried wood with a moisture content typically running between 5 and 12%. Raw product is run through a hammer mill with a ¼ inch screen and blown through a solid piping system into the bagging bin. The sawdust is then augured into the automated packaging unit and straight into a poly-woven bag. Because it travels through a sealed system from hammer mill to bag, customers are assured a consistent, uncontaminated product that will not contribute to down-hole plugging.
Lone Pine Supply specializes in a unique packaging technique that increases the ease of handling in both transportation and storage.
Polywoven bags of sawdust weigh an average of 15 pounds (7 kgs) each, depending on sawdust moisture. Our high-capacity, volume bagger and unique packaging system produce skids of bagged Lost Circulation Material that are uniform and condensed. Each skid becomes a solid 47” x 47” x 50” cube that can be double–stacked and shipped in dry-vans or on flat deck trailers without product shifting. The outer packaging of each pallet is a waterproof membrane that contains a UV protector, making outside storage feasible.
Our customers definitely appreciate the ease with which they can unload, store and move Lone Pine products.
