Drilling Fluid Mud Cleaner Working Principle and Advantages

As one of the important equipment for solid liquid separation system, the drilling mud cleaner, also called desander and desilter assembly, mainly consists of three parts including desander, desilter and the underflowscreen. It can achieve separation of two stage with the hydrocyclone mounted over the shale shaker. Compared with the independent desander and desilter, the product has much higher working efficiency. Same as the shale shaker in function, the equipment is designed rationally with compact structure, small volume and powerful performance.

Drilling fluids mud cleaner working principle

It is the second or third stage separation equipment of drilling liquid, which will deal with the mud after being treated by the first grade separation equipment. The barite will be recovered and cuttings which are bigger than barite will be removed. Then the barite in the underflow will flow into circulation tanks through the screens when the weighted mud passes while the particles that are bigger than mesh will be removed.

How well drilling mud cleaner work?

How well drilling mud cleaner work?

Mud cleaner is one equipment separate useless particle or drilling cuttings out of drilling fluid. During whole well drilling, to ensure good drilling performance and well condition we need equipments process drilling mud.


Mud equipments for well drilling

Actually, every kind of well drilling will request mud treatment equipment. Such as O&G drilling, CSM, HDD, water well, geothermal well, etc. What are exact equipments for mud process?

Strictly speaking, including mud pump, solids control equipments/system. Detail is shale shaker, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge, centrifugal pump, degassers, mixing pump, mud tanks, etc. Mud pumps provide power and motivate.

How mud cleaner work?

Let’s introduce mud cleaner in details. Mud cleaner is combination of 2nd and 3rd phase solids control. Usually, it will be set behind vacuum degasser or shale shaker subsequently.

Mud cleaner includes hydrocyclone desander, hydrocyclone desilter and bottom shaker. On mud cleaner there are desander hydrocyclones, desilter cones. These cones are fit on pipeline, which contains feed inlet and discharge output.


After drilling mud processed by shale shaker (and gas buster) centrifugal feeding pump will transfer drilling fluid from shaker compartment to desander cone inlet. At this time, drilling fluid is under centrifugal pump pressure. It has sufficient power to flow arround hydrocyclone. Finally, the solid larger than 74 microns will be discharged out of drop in Apex.

Clean fluid flow to desander compartment through desander cone discharge output. Then SB series centrifugal pump transfer drilling mud from desander compartment to desilter feed inlet.  Drilling fluid in desilter cone has same process principle and process as desander.

The processed mud will down to desilter compartment. This part drilling fluid is to be processed by decanter centrifuge. The particle in this department is mainly less than 12 microns.

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.
