SEPARATION PLANT COMPARISON BETWEEN BRIGHWAY BWTBM425 AND ITE TSP300-2

Long time not update the Blog regularly, need to catch up, : )

Today we compare the separation plant between Brightway BWTBM425 and ITE TSP300-2.

Let’s see ITE TSP300-2 firstly, and I like ITE description about their separation plant, quite brief and fresh.

The ITE TSP300-2 is a compact separation plant and specially designed for processing of slurries and removal of drilled solids from the slurry circuit in tunneling, horizontal drillings or deep hole drilling applications.
The TSP300-2 is composed of two 4-panel vibration screening machines, two 15” hydro-vacuum-cycones, one 20’ process tank with one integrated centrifugal feed pump, one control cabinet and accessories.
Adjustable discharge chutes, fold-away platform and pluggable railing for safe working and good access provide a plug-and-play solution. Assembly time is therefore reduced to a minimum. Feeding of shakers and cyclones is accomplished by an integrated fixed piping and wiring system in a minimal footprint.
Instead of a collection of equipment from various sources, the ITE TSP300-2 is a field-proven network of separation components specifically designed to function as a single unit. During each separation stage, a maximum of solids particles are remove from the slurry. The modular system guarantees continuous and fast advance rates, reducing downtimes of a minimum. The innovative screening technology combined with hydrocylones constitutes a complete recycling concept, providing optional removal of critical fine particles down to 45 microns and guaranteeing the constant slurry properties.
The vibration screening machines can be equipped with a wide range of different ITE hookstrip and panel screens which are available from 4mm mesh width down to 45um.

BRIGHTWAY SHALE SHAKER AND ITE SHALE SHAKER

Happy to go on the interesting travel of comparison between Brightway and ITE.

We are both the solids control manufacturer, and ITE is more focused in micro-tunneling, Brightway products have been sold in oil and gas drilling , HDD, Micro-tunneling etc. I can see a lot which we need to learn from this German manufacturer. Step by step, I understand how the preciseness and practical Germany is.

Let’s go into the details. Firstly this is the detail and specification of ITE linear shale shaker with 3 screens.The ITE 3-Panel Screening Machine 3PSM is designed to dewater heterogeneous solid-liquid mixtures.

Both IDE and BRIGHTWAY  use the wedge fixed screen, the main difference is the angle adjustment structure. From manufacturing detail aspect, both ITE & BRIGHTWAY pay attention to. E.g, the plate is folded once as below picture, and not adopting the welding way as other solids control manufacturer do.

But BRIGHTWAY need to learn more from ITE from the professional aspect of package as below, especially it is very important to sell our products to the international market, all this can tell our culture and attitude as the international manufacturer.

Separation Plant Comparison between Brightway and ITE

It is chanced that one of my friend sent me the working video of the decanter centrifuge produced by one German company named ITE, and I noted that this company was in the micro-tunneling industrial and they can produce the solids control equipment and the TBM separation plant also.

I am quite interested in this company and want to study their product as my friend told me that their product were durable and he even liked their products better than Bauer and Herrenknecht,  which are the most well-known Brands for the mud separation plant.

This company was set up in 2008, and they call themselves a young and innovative company, and Brightway is even younger than ITE, but also a innovative company with a young team.

I plan to do it step by step, today’s topic is the comparison of mud separation plant ( solids control system) with treatment capacity 60-90 m3/h between Brightway and ITE.

Based on the above comparison, Brightway size is smaller but structure compact. For ITE,, they  use the motor for shale shaker with power as 5kw, which is much bigger than Brightway’s motor, but the G force Brihgtway’s is higher than ITE.
