The "Mole" is an on-site Drill Cuttings Treatment System. Now it is easy to generate very clean, uniform, high quality samples without any cross contamination. The opportunity now exists to find "More Oil with Less Effort".

FSI International rents Mole Cuttings Washers on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Please contact us for rates and availability.


  • Rapid Sample Processing. Better intraformational positioning when drilling horizontal wells.
  • A Reliable Database for future reference. Useful for S.E.M. cutting analysis and theoretical /k plots.
  • Rapid Drying Without Heat. Does not alter or effect the geochemical parameters of source rock material, nor does it effect discoloration of conodonts, micro fossil assemblages or various grades of coal.
  • With the use of Surfactants: Ideally suited for rapidly processing samples from invert mud systems. There are virtually no noxious odours. No generation of carcinogenic gases as a result of heat fractionation of oil based mud.
