Shale shakers are components of drilling equipment used in many industries, such as coal cleaning, mining, oil and gas drilling.

They are considered to be the first phase of a solids control system on a drilling rig, they are used to remove large solids also called cuttings from the drilling fluid, more commonly called “Mud” due to its similar appearance.

Drilling fluids are integral to the drilling process and, among other functions, serve to lubricate and cool the drill bit as well as convey the drilled cuttings away from the bore hole. These fluids are a mixture of various chemicals in a water or oil based solution and can be very expensive to make.

For both environmental reasons and to reduce the cost of drilling operations, drilling fluid losses are minimized by stripping them away from the drilled cuttings before the cuttings are disposed of.

This is done using a multitude of specialized machines and tanks.

Shale shakers are the primary solids separation tool on a rig. After returning to the surface of the well the used drilling fluid flows directly to the shale shakers where it begins to be processed. Once processed by the shale shakers the drilling fluid is deposited into the mud tanks where other solid control equipment begin to remove the finer solids from it.

Submersible Slurry Pump is designed for pumping the liquid mud while wells drilling. And it can be used as a charging pump for the main mud pump. Increased capacity allows significantly reduce pumping time.

Our DCYZ series submersible slurry pump  mainly supply mud for shale shaker and decanter centrifuge from the mud pit. Its structure is single sucking cantilever type, and uses bearing seat, supporting seat and pipe to connect the hydraulic parts of pump, and liquid is discharged from the hydraulic hose assembly. Pump’s impeller is semi-open type, and it’s equipped with mixing blade in the stretch part of impeller inlet.

Submersible slurry pump

Specially designed pump frame, adapted to drilling rig, enables it to vertical movement of working part, thus providing for serviceability and checkup. The bottom part of the shaft has enough rigidity; pump impeller is set between bearings. It can supply the liquid with strong concentration of solid particles. The submersible slurry pump may penetrate the liquid between 800m-2500mm under it, and may be equipped with suction pipes if necessary.

Slurry pump

DCYZ series submersible slurry pump is currently used in city bored piling, tunnelling construction, trenchless HDD, oil & gas drilling, Drilling Waste Management, environment protection, Coal Bed Gas Solids Control System, Water Drilling, Oil Sludge Dewatering Systems, Oil Mud Seperation, coal washing, municipal projects, thermal power generation, mining, paper making, cement plant etc.

Desanders and desilters are solids control equipment that is installed on top of a mud tank. Each piece of equipment consists of a set of hydrocyclones that separate sand and silt from drilling fluid while they differ by the size of the hydrocyclones used.

Desanders utilize several 8″, 10″, or 12″ hydrocyclones. Utilizing hydrocyclones with larger internal diameters increases the flow rate as well as the size of the solids removed. Increasing the number of hydrocyclones in the package also increases the flow rate of drilling mud through the desander. Typically a 10 inch cone (hydrocyclone) is capable of removing 50% of solids with in the 40 to 50 micrometer range at a flow rate of 500 gallons per minute.

Desilters utilize smaller hydrocyclones and are used to process mud that has already been cycled through the desander. The number of cones in a desilter is greater than the corresponding desander as the smaller cones accommodate lower flow rates. Desilters are comprised of either 4″ or 5″ cones whereas each 4″ cone is capable of removing 50% of solids 15 to 20 micrometers in range at a flow rate of 60 gallons per minute.

JQB series mud agitator is composed of motor (explosion-proof motor), reducer, base, connecting shaft, stirring rod and stirring impeller. The mixing impeller can be made into a single layer or double layer according to the solid liquid ratio of the mud. The material can also used ordinary carbon steel or stainless steel. The surface of mud agitator is sprayed with high corrosion resistant paint to make it suitable for various working conditions.

Features of mud agitators:
1.Easy to install, flexible, superior performance, easy to maintain.
2.The input shaft of the motor and reducer is connected through the coupling, which is not driven by the belt, and the stirring speed is constant.
3.Good heat exchange performance, fast heat dissipation, suitable for the complex working conditions such as field drilling project.
4.In drilling fluid solid liquid ratio must be under certain conditions. JBQ series drilling fluid mixers have the advantages of larger mixing strength, wider range and higher performance than the same products in the case of drilling fluid solid solution.
5.The motor of mud drilling fluid mixer is made by famous domestic manufacturers. Small noise, durable.

Mud Cleaner is the second phase or the third phase solids control equipment, and it is the combination of desander, desilter and underneath shale shaker, so it can be called Desander and Desilter. Recent days, we shipped 3 sets mud cleaners to a Indonesia clients who is focus on drilling contract.

drilling mud cleaner

Mud cleaners are used to remove drill cuttings from drilling fluid, known as mud. The mud is a non-Newtonian fluid of variable viscosity that serves several purposes in drilling operations. Mud is used to drive the down-hole motor, cool the drilling bit, carry the drill cutting to the surface for disposal, and maintain hydrostatic balance in the well.

The mud cleaner is designed to remove the drill cuttings while allowing the weighted fillers of the mud, commonly barite, to stay suspended in the mud. The cuttings, consisting of solids greater than 74 to 105 micrometers, are filtered out in the staged process of the mud cleaner.

The model of the mud cleaner  is DCQJ100X12/200×8 with the inlet capacity is 240m3/h. And With compact structure, small footprint and great efficiencty, it is the ideal choice as the second or the third phase solids control equipments. As the famous Mud Cleaner Manufacturer and Exporter in China, DC Solid control designs and manufacture the DCQJ Series Mud Cleaner for sale and customized the mud cleaner according to customers’ request.

Mud agitator is an important part of the drilling-fluid solids controlling system. DC solid control provide vertical and horizontal mud agitator. Horizontal agitator is the most popular type of mud tank system.

Mud Agitator is used in mud systems to suspend solids and maintain homogeneous mixture throughout the system. A mechanical agitator is driven by an explosion-proof motor,coupled to a gear box that drives the impeller shaft. The impellers (turbines) transform mechanical power into fluid circulation or agitation. The objective is to obtain a uniform suspension of all solids.\
