Drilling Fluid Mud Tank Features and Components

Mud tank is petroleum drilling fluid solid control system, it is mainly including FG and ZG

petroleum drilling mud tank, mud tank circulating system according bottom tank shape is

divided into square tank and tapered tank. The tank use flat taper structure or corrugated

structure, the steel plate and structural steel installed and welded. 

Mud Tank Feature

drilling fluid tank is an open-top container, typically made of steel, to store drilling fluid on

drilling rig. They are also called mud tank mud pits, because they used to be nothing

more than pits dug out of the earth. The mud tank is devided into Square tank and Cone-

shaped tank according to the shape of tank bottom. The body of the tank is made of

welding the steel plate and section, using the flat cone-shape structure or the corrugated

structure.

It will bring out the particles and be lead to the mud tank

Solids control system is an indispensible part for every drilling rig. But many newcomers of drilling industry have no idea of the functions of Solids control equipment.

Both of these make the Solids control equipment so necessary and important, because Solids control equipment can provide a circulation system for drilling mud. After the new compounded mud used for the lubrication of the drill bit, it will bring out the particles and be lead to the mud tank,shale shakerdesanderdesiltercentrifuge and some other components of drilling Solids system, through which even very small particles can be separated. And then the mud will be filled with some water or added with some kinds of chemicals, through which the mud can be filled back to well again and perform just as new mud. This kind of circulation can provide a sustainable usage of drilling mud, which can save much for the operators. With this system, operators don’t need to purchase large quantity of mud and also don’t need to be worried about the penalties or lawsuits from the environmental departments of the countries where oilfields located. Because the Solids control system can reduce the pollution of environment in a very low level.

Environment protection and cost saving are the two main functions of Solid control system during drilling. And because of these functions, so many Solids control equipment manufacturers are focusing on this area and devoting themselves to improve the technology of the system.

Introduction of mud tank

mud tank is an open-top container, typically made of steel, to store drilling fluid on a drilling rig. They are also called mud pits, because they used to be nothing more than pits dug out of the earth.

The tanks are generally open-top and have walkways on top to allow a worker to traverse and inspect the level of fluid in the tanks. The walkways also allow access to other equipment mounted on top. Recently, offshore drilling rigs have closed-in tanks for safety. The mud tank plays a critical role in mechanically removing destructive solids and sediment from costly land and offshore drilling systems.

The numbers of the mud tanks that are needed on the drilling rig depend on the depth of the well, and also the mud demands of drilling. A tank is sectioned off into different compartments. A compartment may include a settling tank, sometimes called a sand trap, to allow sand and other solids in the drilling fluid to precipitate before it flows into the next compartment.

Other compartments may have agitators on the top of the tanks, which have long impellers below inserting into the tank & stirring the fluid to prevent its contents from precipitating. Mud guns are often equiped at the corners of the tanks’ top, spraying high-pressed mud to prevent the drilling fluids in the corner of the compartment from precipitating, typically for the square tanks.

The pipe work linking the mud tanks/pits with the mud pumps is called the suction line. This may be gravity fed or charged by centrifugal pumps to provide additional volumetric efficiency to the mud pumps.

Mud tanks for solids control

Mud tanks are the base of solids control equipments, such as shale shaker, desander, desilter, etc., and also the carrier of drilling fluids. Mud tanks for solids control systems are divided into Square tanks and Cone-shaped tanks according to the shape of the tank bottom. The body of the tank is made by welding the steel plate and section, using the smooth cone-shape structure or the corrugated structure. The mud tank surface and passages are made of slip resistant steel plate and expanded steel plate.The mud tanks are made of the side steel pipe, all of the structure can be folded without barrier and pegged reliably.

The surface of the tank is equipped with a water pipeline for cleaning the surface and equipment on the tank, it uses soaked zinc processing for the expanded steel plate. The ladder is made of channel steel to take responsibility the body, the foot board is made of expanded steel plate. The two-sided guard rail are installed the safe suspension hook. The mud tank is designed the standard shanty to prevent the sand and the rain. The pipeline is installed in the tank to preserve the warm air heat.

Mud tank capacity calculation

Do you know how to calculate the mud tank capacity?Mud tanks selectionDifferent mud system require different mud tanks. Different mud tanks decided by actual well drilling conditions also client’s preferance. Usually there will be rectangle mud tanks since the convenient transportation and ideal configuration on equipments position. So the tank capacity is an important issue on total system

AJT Mud tanks

The tank design

The mud tank, as we know, there is rectangle shape tank in drilling mud processing system. While there is also tanks for oil, etc. And the tank in mud system is considered as the medium of storage and processing platform. The mud capacity is also decided by compartment division, and the equipment dimension.

The tank can be designed to be many compartments according to processing stage and different purpose. If client just require mixing tank and we can make it only one compartment or two compartment.

AJT Mud tanks

 

Calculating tank capacity

We need to calculate mud tank capacity as inner net capacity. It should exclude centrifugal pump skid on either end or under shale shaker compartment. Just take following tanks as example:

This 200GPM HDD mud system consists shale shaker, desilter, centrifugal pump, jet mud mixer and mud holds mud tank longs 7m. Jet mud mixer and centrifugal pump on one skid, while the skid is 2m. Then there is still about 200mm length as the other side skid. So the net length of tank is 4.8m. How about the width?

Generally, in order to give clients convenient transportation for sea shipment we design it as 2.3m in total. However there is about 0.15~0.2m width for flanges. The net width will be 2.1m. The height is1.85m. There is base heighs 0.2m, top frame heighs 0.15m so the tank net height is 1.5m. The mud tank total capacity can be 15CBM more or less.

Calculation method

Above calculation way is one of common method on tank capacity calculation. The suggestion is just reference for you to choose appropriate mud container and mud system

We need to find updated and more sciencific method to calculate and choose ideal solutions on mud tank.

What is a mud gun in Solidscontrol?

What is a mud gun ?

A mud gun is a device used to agitate drilling mud on a drilling rig. More of a nozzle than a gun, a mud gun is connected to a pump to circulate the drilling mud and prevent the solids from settling in the mud tank.

The mud is mixed by being sucked into a pipe by a powerful pump and expelled back into the mud tank by being pushed through the nozzle of the mud gun. The process is similar to how a water jet works on a power washer.

 Mud Gun

 Mud Gun

is designed for use in a solids control system of a Drilling Rig .It is one kind of special tool which mainly uses for mixing drilling mud in the circulatory system and prevents the mud precipitates. The structure of equipment is simple, flexible Operation and easy using. A mud gun is the ideal equipment to guard against precipitates in a solids control system. The mud gun is installed in a mud tank.

Furthermore, it is usually used together with mud agitator. They have similar configuration principle on one mud tank.

NJQ Mud gun(1)

The principle and field of mud gun

Drilling mud is a wet substance that resembles a thick clay and is used to cool the drill head and carry the remnants of drilling to the surface in water well drilling and oil or gas drilling operations.

The mud is recycled by passing it through several filters or screens as it is circulated into the drill hole and back into the mud tanks on the drilling rig. In order to keep the mud as fluid as possible, a mud gun is used to keep the tank agitated and mixed. Mud is made by mixing water or oil with a clay-like substance that also contains numerous other chemicals into a large tank called the mud tank on a drilling rig.

 FSI Mud gun

Type

The type of mud used when drilling is dependent on the type of drilling that is being done. The mud gun is the same for whatever type of mud is being used. Often made by adding a type of nozzle onto a piece of pipe, the mud gun works much like placing a thumb over the end of a water hose.

This applies pressurized mud into the tank, causing it to create a mixing action. Agitating the mixture also aids in the removal of the cuttings from the mixture as it is filtered through the various screens in the tank.

泥浆枪副本

 Function 

The viscosity of the mud is very critical, with a thin mixture being unable to keep the cuttings from the drill head suspended until they reach the surface and can be screened out of the mixture. A mixture that is too thick can waste profits and can even slow the drilling productivity.

Another function of the mud gun is to maintain the suspension of the drilling cuttings so that they can be removed on the first pass through the screens. Cuttings that are not removed on the first pass through the screens can become broken up into smaller pieces that are more difficult to remove from the mixture.

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.

]6DQ[1N{QEYE]BQA3WVWEDH

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.
