Category Archives: Mud Tank

A drilling rig normally has two tanks. A tank is sectioned off into 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, which are large fan blades stirring the fluid to prevent its contents from precipitating.

To be as a professional manufacturer of drilling mud system. DC Solid control can design and manufacturer all kinds and volume mud tanks according to users’ request. Mud tanks are the base of solids control equipment.


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 quantity depends on mud process capacity requirements. Especially for mud storage, suitable for mud pump, drilling rig, etc. If you have request please contact us freely.

Drilling cutting boxes are a kind of tank to contain drilled solids in well drilling. Both for onshore and offshore o&g drilling. According to 7 month communication, DC Solid control fincialy got the bider of 40 sets drilling cutting box at Aug. And adter 15 dasy production, we have already finished the production period.


The cutting boxes are usually rectangular tanks. They can be configured on typical oilfield 3-leg mounted skid, can be common container shape, or the traditional roll off. They are always open top for convenient materials handling, furthermore, they are water tight type without leakage.


The cuttings tank certainly can be designed variously as the clients’ demand vary much. But the bottom and general dimensions are same. For example, the tanks can be designed with corrugated plate thicks 8mm. Another proposal is the tanks designed with wall thicks 6mm. And the height can be different. For example, we Aipu produce mainly 2 model drilling cutting box. One is 2000x1600x1060mm, another is 3300x1600x1650mm.

The 40 sets cutting box will be used on offshore rig. All items in this order should be produced with same specs and standard. Another request is the CCS Certificate of offshore drilling cutting box.


In the United States, cuttings boxes (small tanks) must be Coast Guard approved. In other developed areas there are similar requirements. These standards have been developed for safety reasons. Some of the drilling cutting box requirements are:


1. Cutting boxes should have a cover that can be locked down and sealed shut. Lid gaskets should be checked frequently.
2. The Cutting boxes must be of sufficient strength to survive a drop of 1 meter without leaking or deforming. Skids, frames, and braces should be in good shape. If the Cutting boxes is rusty or shows signs of abuse, it is probably not maintained properly.
3. Since the Cutting boxes is sealed, it must have pressure relief to prevent
explosion and vacuum relief to allow the lid to be opened when the contents cool and form a vacuum. A rupture disc is usually installed on the lid to allow emergency venting. Check the rupture disc inspection date. A small valve may be used for vacuum venting.


In developing countries, homemade boxes are sometimes encountered. Transporting and emptying boxes is always dangerous. The use of homemade boxes or poorly maintained boxes can be hazardous.

A Mud Tank is also called a mud pit. Mud Tanks can be of either cone or square shape depending on the shape of the tank bottom. A Mud Tank is necessary in the solids control system and also plays a crucial role for the transport of the drilling fluids. It can be classified according to its functions into chemical tank, metering tank, storing tank and circulating tank etc.

A Mud Tank is a container made from steel plate and steel tube with an open top for storing drilling fluids on a drilling rig. At the end of March, DC Solid control finished the production of 5 sets heavy mud tanks.

Why I said it is heavy mud tank, because of its thickening of the steel plate, side plate is 10mm thickness, and bottom base is 12mm thickness. But our common mud tank is 8mm thickness, so I call it heavy mud tanks.
