Category Archives: Mud Tank

A mud tank is a large storage container used to hold reserves of drilling fluid, also known as drilling mud, for a drill rig. Drilling fluid is used to reduce friction on drill components to allow them to work harder and faster with less risk of breaking down. Numerous companies manufacture and refurbish mud tanks of various shapes and sizes for industrial use, and contractors who specialize in cleaning tanks and other drilling equipment are also available. The cost for tanks and associated services varies widely, especially when custom designs are involved.

In petroleum & natural gas drilling, and directional drilling, the drilling fluids are widely used with functions of providing hydrostatic pressure to downhole, controlling & maintaining the down hole pressure, keeping the drill bit cool and lubricating bit while it works, and most importantlly carrying the drilled-solids to the surface of the well. To maintain the property of the drilling fluids, the drilled solids must be removed by the solids control system which takes the mud tank as the carrier of drilling mud, and also the mud recyclying system are used to add additive agents into the fluids, and mix them thoroughly.

DC Solids Control manufacture varies of mud tank/water tank,oil sludge tanks,Oilfield three runner design Skid mounted tank,with galvanized grating,safe handrail,coated with Marine corrosion-resistant zinc rich epoxy coating and paining,two layers for inside tank,three layers for outside tank.

Why choose DC Drilling mud tank?

A 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 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.

As a mud carrier, mud tank is an indispensable part of mud circulation system and it can complete weighting,
mixing, solid-liquid separating, degassing and other processes. Mud tank carries the mud circulating between
well head and mud pump. The solid phase particles in mud are separated stage by stage through relevant solids
control equipment on mud tanks as to make the fluid meet drilling requirements after mixing and weighting
system.

Mud tank is the petroleum drilling solid control equipment, it mainly including FG and ZG type of  oil drilling mud tank. But different drilling field with the different well should match the different size mud tanks. So according to drilling field covering requirements to divided into the rectangular tank and tapered shaped tank.

Structure of mud tank 

The tank body uses the antiskid steel and anti-skidding bar-type halftone, the tank surface railing use the square steel tube manufacturing, it is the barrier free and collapsible structure. The peg graft is fastness. Mud tank circulating tank surface equipped pure water pipeline to wash the tank surface and equipment. Tank surface halftone use zinc immersion processing. The upper ladder use the U-bar as the main body, the anti-skidding bar-type halftone as the footstep, bilateral guardrail equipped the insure pothook.

Requirements for anticorrosion 

The tank surface all use derusting by sandblast technology eliminate surface rusting and dirt.

The painting is ocean paint (epoxy zinc-rich paint)

Mud tank matched equipment

Usually the mud tank should matched drilling fluid shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, mud gas separator, mud agitator, centrifugal pump, shear pump, centrifuge, flare ignition device, slurry and mud gun. Meanwhile these equipment combine a complete solid control system.

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.

Tank surface and corridor use the anti-skidding steel and anti-skidding bar halftone, tank surface railing use square steel tube manufacture, it is the barrier free and folding structure, the connection is fastness.

Mud tank circulating system tank surface matched rinsing pipeline to clean tank surface and equipment, the tank surface halftone use soak zinc processing. The upper tank ladder use U-steel as the main body, using anti-skidding halftone as the footstep, the bilateral guardrail set insurance hooks. Petroleum drilling mud tank has standard sand prevention, prevent canopy, the tank set central heating pipeline.

Mud tank is designed for at home and abroad landscape, rivers, highway and traversing project. According the recovery and treatment of drilling fluid mud tank can purify drilling fluid, improve horizontal through speed, decrease the wear of mud pump, drill pipe and drill bit, waste mud material, decrease drilling cost, protection environment, mud tank take the considerable economic benefit for users.

Mud tank is a kind of drilling fluid purification device and container. Mud tank is mainly made of tank body, and agitator. The clapboard is separated two parts, the characteristics are; there are two sets centrifugal pump and desander, desilter on the tank top, they are respectively installed on the support which can glide, on the under of desander and desilter respectively installed small shale shaker. The new structure is compact, cover area is small, degassing effect is good, can decrease mud loss. Mud tank apply to petroleum drilling purify treatment and store mud.

Mud tank is a obbligato part of oil drilling fluid, it is divided into mud excessive tank, proportioning aggravate tank, mud reserve tank according the use.

The mud excessive tank

The model mud excessive tank of DC solid control is BXDMG52-CJ3, the volume is 22, the maximum power is 656KW, rated pressure is 380v/220v, current rating is 150A, the external power of 1# feeding mud excessive tank is 300A plug-in board. The feeding line of electric source is 3*70+1*25.

Proportioning aggravate tank

The typical type of proportioning aggravate tank is BXDMG-52-cj3. The volume is 40, the maximum power is 656KW, current power is 380v/220v, current rating is 150A, the external power of 1#proportionong aggravate tank is 33A plug-in board. The feeding line of electric source is 3*70+1*25.

The use of proportioning aggravate

Through aggravate funnel add the corresponding limit of drug and sand which is infiltrated in to proportioning tank, it is agitated by mud agitator and make it reach a certain proportion.
