HDD Mud Circulation System is applied to construction projects with higher mud capacities. Its purification process is divided into three stages: shale shaker for the first stage, desander and desilter respectively for the second and third stages. Both desander and desilter are equipped with underflow shakers that can carry out a further treatment to solids discharged by the upper equipment. By mud preparation devices, add necessary mud materials into purified mud and stir them evenly to prepare mud with qualified properties for recycling, which can greatly reduce construction costs and effectively protect the environment.

To be as a professional manufacturer of solid control company. DC Machinery also can design and production all kinds capacities of mud recycling system according to uses’ request. Please contact us if you have any requirements with it.

Desander is solids control equipment with a set of desander cyclone to separate sand from drilling mud in drilling rigs&peroid; Yesterday, DC Solid control shipped a set of desander mud tank system to Malaysia clients used for building construction field.

DC desander is the second class and the third class solid control equipment to treat the drilling fluid. According to the size of the cone diameter, it is divided into Desander and Desilter. Usually the cone diameter is more than 6″is called Desander, and used as the second-control equipment in drilling operation. We commonly used 8 “and 10″ cones desander to separate solid-phase particle size 47-76μm in the drilling fluids.

desander tank

The reason to use desander unit is that building constructio in common soil with the presence of water table, generally require the use of a short temporary steel casing and a drilling fluid as static suspension to provide support to the surrounding soil while excavating the pile and until complete backfill of the pile excavation with concrete, in order to prevent cave-in of the excavation and destabilizing the surrounding soil formation. DC desander tank system is to separate the sands from the drilling fluids and recycling the drilling fluids for use.


The DC Desander tank system is innovative products for drilling fluids cleaning. The traditional desander desitler without Shale Shaker is only available for unweighted drilling mud.The traditional desander is oversized for some applications,and the desander is relatively more expensive. The innovative DC desander mud tank system is an ideal option for both weighted and unweighted drilling mud with the most cost effective solution for drilling. Further more, the DC mud desander is the best choices for small mud system for HDD,CBM, water well drilling, mining exploration industry etc.

Last week, DC attended the India no dig trenchless exhibition and showed the cost-effective mud recycling system there. Many visitors came to DC booth and showed interest to DC Corporation and the products.

Relative to the use of drilling fluids within the oil and gas industry, the use of drilling fluids within the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) industry is new. Even today, the amount of research and development aimed at HDD drilling fluids is considered a rounding error in the oligopoly of drilling fluid manufacturers.
However, the trends strongly suggest that the future of HDD drilling will follow a similar evolution as experienced by the traditional oil and gas industry.
Solid control

A typical HDD solids control system will employ a combination of shaker, hydrocyclone, mixing, pump and compartmentalized tank technologies. The shaker is vital to the solids control system and is considered the first line of defense. Located directly downstream from the shaker will likely be a hydrocyclone assembly that will employ
desilters, desanders or both. Though still considered rare, centrifuge-enable solids control systems are becoming more popular. By adding a centrifuge, the solids control system will achieve the highest level of cut available within the market today.

mud system for HDD

Compact design and small foot print allows it to be easily moved and transported. DC Solids Control can develop the proper system to meet specific requirements. from small HDD (horizontal directional drilling mud system) to deep oil well drilling mud system.

DC Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) mud Cleaning and regeneration system and equipment become more and more popular,just last week,we got two orders from around clients,1 is from a HDD contractor company,and the other is from a company want to do HDD mud service.

During the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) process large amounts of liquid waste are produced. Shale shakers are the primary means of solids control resulting in a wet, difficult to manage, drilling waste with a high volume of mud losses at surface.


The make-up fluid is typically fresh water, used to replace surfaces losses. As the drilling rate increases, waste is generated at a higher rate, usually with a higher fluid content. Generally, at this point in the process drilling waste is transported off-site in its entirety by vacuum trucks.

The drilling waste in its current state has to be disposed of at a Class II wet waste disposal facility, increasing cost, traffic risk, and environmental impact. Depending on the contaminants in the formation or fluid, along with project location, disposing of waste at a facility is the only option.

DC Solid control company is able to reduce the waste volume, reclassify the waste as a dry product, and potentially reuse the soils if needed. Recovering drilling fluid or fresh water allows the company to reuse it in their processes or dispose of the fluid in the most environmentally and economically friendly manner.
