Rotating Control Device (RCD) Sealing Elements
The RCD tool is found in a closed loop oil & gas drilling system where it works to contain and divert fluids as well as enable wellbore pressure management. It diverts mud and cuttings away from the drill floor. Both Land and Subsea environments can use an RCD. The sealing element within the assembly rotates with the drill pipe to maintain a tight seal and contains returning fluids in the annulus as the drill pipe passes through the RCD. The use of a RCD can help with environmental concerns, safety benefits and reduction of nonproductive time.
