It is critical in following certain safety regulations, but also to help keep costs down and productivity up. The updated line of Ditch Witch fluid management systems sets the standards for fluid management in the HDD industry. The updated systems incorporate new design features to meet the high-standards for drill productivity, improve drilling fluid flow, increase durability and provide faster mixing cycle times and yield times. The Ditch Witch family of fluid management systems includes the FT5, FM5X, FM13X and FM25X to meet the needs of any small- to mid-sized HDD project.
