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.
Drilling fluids mud cleaner Advantages
1.Environmentally Efficient The OGEM Solids Control mud cleaner provides efficient removal of sand and silt particles between 12 and 76 microns. Removing and drying drilled solids helps meet environmental regulations by minimizing waste generated and reducing disposal cost.
2.High Performance installed with 1-3 10″ desander cones processing 500gpm respectively and with 8-20 desilter cones which each one can process 80gpm, the ogem mud cleaner can make a separation between 12 and 76 microns.
3.Versatility: OGEM’s compact,multi-functional mud cleaners are designed to be combined with desander, desilter and an Underflow shale shake. The equipment in multi-functional feature allows the operator to handle varying drilling fluid viscosities and solids content with the same unit.
4.Extends Equipment Life, The mud cleaner helps minimize maintenance, repair and replacement of downstream equipment.
5.Reduces Operating Cost, The mud cleaner reduces sand and silt-size particles and saves liquid, thus reducing mud cost, chances of stuck pipe and lost circulation and improving rate of penetration.
6.Reduces Disposal Cost, The mud cleaner minimizes waste generated thus reducing disposal cost.
