The old adage “don’t muddy the water” doesn’t apply to horizontal directional drilling (HDD) where the water is supposed to be muddy. Drilling fluid (mud) extracts particles and cuttings from the bore hole, as well as stabilizes the hole itself. Mud has always been an essential element to a successful drilling operation.

In 2009, integrated systems manufacturer Kem-Tron Technologies barely broke even. Despite a market that’s flat in more ways than one, the company’s president says that as of September 2010 the company’s revenue has already matched the full year totals for 2009, with 30% growth expected by the end of the year. What made the difference?

In order to educate the buyer on what factors to consider when purchasing a mud system Kem-Tron has created the Buyers’ Guide to Mud Recycling & Mixing Systems.
