Centrifugal pump in drilling fluid system

In drilling fluid system, centrifugal pumps are always used to transfer drilling fluid for linear motion shale shaker,hydrocyclone desander and desilter or mud cleaners.

Drilling fluid system

Drilling fluid system is the typical 4 phase mud process system,including shale shaker, desander, desilter, centrifuge.The shale shaker is the first stage of solids control equipment in solids control system, which removes cuttings with diameter above 76μm from the drilling fluids brought up from the wells.Drilling mud desander is the second stage of solids control equipment in solids control system. It is mainly used to take away the solids with diameter ranging from 47 to 76 μm from the formerly treated fluids.Desilter is the third stage of solids control equipment in solids control system. Decanter centrifuge is the solids control equipment which used to separate the solids from volumes of liquid that contain solid particles.

Centrifugal pump used as mud pump

OGEM Solids Control SB Series centrifugal pump is used for transporting drilling mud. It can be used as feeding pump for drilling mud desander, drilling mud desilter, or used as mixing pump for Jet Mud Mixer. Also it can be used as trip pump and supercharging pump for rig mud pump.Usually, these pumps are horizontal one. They’ll be mounted on mud tanks ends or under the slant plate of shaker tank. When we set pumps under shaker tank will save much space. However, then it will be inconvenient when we repair or inspect pumps.But sometimes in solids control system there will be vertical pump or submersible slurry pump instead of horizontal pumps.

Drilling fluids flow into the shale shaker directly after it returns to the surface of the well, and the solids that are removed by the screen would be dischanged out of the tank, and the drilling fluids with smaller solids would flow through the screen into mud tank for further purification. A centrifugal pump would sucks the shaker-treated fluids up to the desilter or mud cleaner for further purification. And vertical slurry pump is used to pump the drilling fluids up to the centrifuge,and mud pump would pump the drilling fluids from mud tank into the borehole after it is treated by centrifuge.

Professional Solid Control from China

Introduction of Solid Control

Solids control is a technique used for well drilling to provide prepared drilling fluids for drilling rigs. Drilling fluid maintenance cost, clean up, and disposal cost as well as the overall cost of boring can be reduced dramatically when proper solids control techniques are utilized.


These facts were recognized in the oil industry in the late 19th century when open earthen pits were used to separate the cuttings from the borehole. This was accomplished by a series of weirs and settling pits that allowed the solids to naturally settle out by using gravity.

The clean mud then flowed into a suction pit to be re-pumped down the hole. This was the first solids control technique ever used.

The next innovation in solids control came when the shale shaker was introduced in the early 1930s for the oil industry. The shale shakers were derived from technology used in the mining industry. The shale shaker remains today the primary piece of solids control equipment utilized in the industry.

Another machine borrowed from the mining industry in the 1930s was the cone classifier or hydrocyclone. The basic principle of this device involves the centripetal forces brought about by the high velocity of the drilling fluid spinning in the cone, forcing the larger and heavier solids to settle outward toward the cyclone wall and downward toward the underflow solids discharge. Together with the shale shaker, hydrocyclones have become an integral part of today’s solid control system.

Solids control for drilling mud process system

Solids control for drilling mud process system

Nowadays, more and more drilling contractors recognize solids control?s importance to oil and gas drilling, HDD, CSM/CBM exploration, etc. How does solids control affect well drilling? Please find the following details.


cost Comparison of two oil well drilling

  • Let’s find the difference of two kinds of oil well drilling which with solids control system and without solids control. Final effect or result is main cost on the drill tools consumption, such as, drilling bit, straining beam, cylinder sleeve, piston, and valve. One well (2# well) uses mud pit contain drilling fluid, the other drilling rig (6#) uses solids control system to process drilling fluid during whole well drilling. They drill the same depth and other conditions are the same.


  • The result is: 2 well consumes 9 drilling bits, while 6 costs 6 bits. Straining beam 20 pcs for 2, 7 pcs for 6, 7 pcs cylinder sleeve for 2 well, and 4 for 6, piston for 2 is 60pcs for 6 is 25pcs, valves for 6 totally 20 sets, ?40 sets.


  • The drilling cost difference between them is about USD20000. If one well solids control performs very well, the drill speed will be much better and the drilling fluid cost will be much lower than poor solids control or drilling fluid process system.

2000HP rig mud system

well drilling Solids control effects

The solids control will separate unuseful drilling cuttings and other solid among drilling fluid. It will correct drilling mud property and keep the drilling fluid performance well.

Solids control effect to well drilling also includes hold proper gravity, density, weight, etc.

Good solids control to well drilling will let’s have good quality drilling fluid during whole well drilling. The good drilling fluid will affect well drilling much. Use good drilling fluid, the well drilling will be fast and efficient, the drilling cost will be less than those bad solids control well drilling.

During whole drilling fluid system, we’ll get good and safe drilling condition decrease even prevent blow out danger. So nowadays we take solids control is rather essential part for oil and gas well drilling, geothermal well drilling, CSM exploration, etc.

Solids control equipment affect

1. Shale shaker will filter particles larger than 76 microns approximately, the hydrocyclone separators or mud cleaner will get rid of solids larger than 15 microns or the range is 15~76. Another issue is the bottom shaker screen mesh with 1st stage shale shaker.

2. The decanter centrifuge can process weighted and unweighted drilling fluid. Make drilling fluid cleaner for next drilling mud circulation.

3. The mud agitator, actually, is assistant equipment. It will keep necessary solid suspend among drilling mud, which makes drilling fluid even weight, density and viscosity. The vacuum degasser also similar with mud agitator, it is much larger than agitator also can get rid of small quantity invaded gas.

4.The mud mixing pump is another kind of equipment to mix or compound drilling fluid. It provides sufficient good property drilling mud ensure drilling fluid recalculate successfully.

Above are main solids control equipments and their effects. Others equipments will be described in other articles.

Another HDD fluids system

Solids control appliaction

We are rather familiar with oil and gas drilling fluid solids control system. Furthermore, solids control has rather wide range applications , such as HDD Mud recycling, the water well drilling, Geothermal well drilling, piling project, tunneling or pipe construction, the CSM exploration, mining industry, slurry separation, etc. But, different industries will have differential name to it. Maybe it is the drilling mud process unit, the drilling fluid purification system, drilling fluid circulation, sludge/dredged slurry separation system, etc.

In short, solids control or mud process system is more and more popular all around the world. Please contact OGEM Equipment for any further interest.


Drilling centrifugal pump for solids control

Introduction of centrifugal pump

  • Centrifugal pumps?are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing?turbomachinery.?Centrifugal pumps are used to transport liquids/fluids by the conversion of the rotational kinetic energy to the hydro dynamics energy of the liquid flow.


  • The rotational energy typically comes from an electric motor or turbine. In the typical simple case, the fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radically outward into a diffuser or?volute?chamber (casing), from where it exits.


  • Common uses include water, sewage, petroleum and petrochemicals. The centrifugal pumps relative with opposite function is the?water turbine that uses the potential energy of water and converts it to mechanical energy.


  • A centrifugal pump converts the input power to kinetic energy in the liquid by accelerating the liquid by a revolving device – an impeller. The most common type is the volute pump. Fluid enters the pump through the eye of the impeller which rotates at high speed. The fluid is accelerated radically outward from the pump chasing. A vacuum is created at the impellers eye that continuously draws more fluid into the pump.


  • The energy created by the pump is kinetic energy according?the Bernoulli Equation. The energy transferred to the liquid corresponds to the velocity at the edge or vane tip of the impeller. The faster the impeller revolves or the bigger the impeller is the higher will the velocity of the liquid energy transferred to the liquid be. This is described by?the Affinity Laws.



SB series centrifugal pump is the ideal equipment to provide impetus for?Desander??Desilter?and?Jet Mud Mixer. It can also be used as Charge Pump auxiliary perfusion for mud pump and Trip Pump for drilling well head. Centrifugal pump is also called sand pump. We considered completely the set equipment can work in excellent condition in the process of designing parameters).Most parts can be exchanged , with convenient operation and maintenance?less seal leakage?reliability?long life and other advantages.
