Colt Industries Desalting Unit

To Be Installed On Huge

New Jack-Up Type Drilling Rig

A sea water desalting unit designed and built by Colt Industries' Power Systems Division,

Beloit, Wis., is being installed on a new off- shore drilling rig. The announcement was made by F.J. Eubank, vice president and gen- eral manager of the Water and Waste Man- agement Operation.

The huge jack-up type drilling rig is now under construction and is designed for opera- tions in the North Sea. The unit is being built for Zapata North Sea, Inc., which is a subsidi- ary of Zapata Norness Incorporated of Hous- ton, Texas. This company operates many drill- ing units in various world locations.

In making the announcement, Mr. Eubank stated: "The Colt Industries desalting unit features simplicity of design and automatic op- eration resulting in minimum operating labor.

These features make the 15,000 gallon per day unit uniquely applicable for offshore equip- ment."

Designated as the Model 15VC1, the machine is an ambient temperature vapor-compression distillation desalter. It is completely packaged with only electric power needed to start oper- ation. Because of low operating temperatures, corrosion and scaling are virtually eliminated.

The compact unit is skid mounted, factory as- sembled and weighs less than 15 tons.

Aboard the new Zapata drill rig, the equip- ment will produce potable water for the crew of about 70 and will also supply enough fresh water, when required, for actual drilling oper- ations. The product water is of high quality, with dissolved solids concentration in a range suitable for nearly all industrial and commer- cial uses as well as for human consumption. "We at Colt Industries are heavily engaged in research and manufacturing of marine water processing and pollution control equipment,"

Mr. Eubank commented. "Our sewage treat- ment plants are designed for military and com- mercial vessels and our desalting plants are producing fresh water in dry areas of the world."

Colt Industries also produces the world- famous Fairbanks Morse, opposed piston die- sel engine, which has powered submarine and surface vessels for many years on the world's seaways.
