Tag Archives: Best Quality Mud Cleaners

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.

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 cleaners are just one of the many solids control and waste management offerings that BRANDT supplies to the oil and gas industry. Quality Management System is ISO 9001-2000 certified.

Mud cleaners were first designed to remove fine drilled solids from weighted muds without excessive loss of barite and fluid. Their primary purpose now is to de-sand weighted muds. Due to advancements in fine screening at the flowline, the mud conditioner’s use in the weighted hole section is much more limited than in previous decades.

Mud cleaners are the combination of desander, desilter and bottom deck shaker. Typically, multiple desander cones (12 in or 10 in) and desilter cones (4 in) are mounted above the screen deck of a shale shaker. The size of the solids (in microns) removed by these units is directly correlated to the size of the cone.

The larger the cone, the larger the size of the particle removed and vice-versa. The mud is fed first through the hydrocyclones, where it subsequently cascades down over the shale shaker. The remaining solids, including barite, are returned to the mud system.

Mud cleaners are two-stage solids control equipment that are composed of several hydrocyclones mounted over a vibrating screen, known as a shale shaker. Mud cleaners are used to remove solids from drilling fluid and act as 2nd and 3rd phase solids control equipment.


Features of Mud cleaner:

Shaker: quick screen tensioning system with easy replaced bolts;explosion proof and rated continuous vibration motor;
AWD system: screen basket adjusted within -1°~+5°at 0.5° increment;
feeder box with inlet connection locates on back 10″,1MPa flange.
Desander cones are 10″ or 12″ hydraulic cones and manifold which are made of high-chromium iron while desiter cones are 4″ or 5″ hydraulic cones and manifold of polyurethane.
Desander, desilter and shaker can be used together to process drilling fluid and can also
perform operation independently according to site situations.
Convenient dismantlement and transportation of two parts.
