Mud cleaner is the combination of bottom shale shaker, desander and desilter. DC Solid control completed the production of three cleaners for foreign customers.

This model Mud Cleaner combines 10” desander hydrocyclone(s) with smaller 4” hydrocyclones, effectively taking two “cuts” at the unwanted solids contaminating the fluid. The 10” remove large solids down to approximately 100 microns and the 4” can remove solids down to the 20 micron size range. The vibratory screening unit is designed to take the underflow of both size sets of hydrocylones and separate the concentrated solids from the liquid.

Application field:
Oilfield drilling mud solids removal
Water well drilling mud
Horizontal hole drilling mud (HDD)
Tunneling operations
Coal bed methane drilling (CMD)

The Mud Cleaner requires two pumps to operate, with the pump feeding the 10” cyclones typically taking a suction from a compartment upstream from the compartment from which the other pump takes its suction to feed the 4” hydrocyclones.

The Mud Cleaner will be designed to handle the entire circulating volume of whichever system in which it is operating. Mud Cleaners are effective on both weighted and un-weighted drilling-fluid systems in removing and drying solids while retaining the expensive liquid phase. Used correctly, the Mud Cleaner can lower both drilling fluid and disposal costs.

DCQJ Mud Cleaner is the second stage and the third stagesolids control equipment which is a combination of Desander, Desilter and underflow shaker shaker. Comparing with
traditional separate Desander and Desilter, the mud cleaner has a higher cleaning function. The Underflow Screen equals another shaler shaker which receives the waste out from
the cyclone nozzle for additional processing. So that mud cleaner could recover more valuable drilling mud. Mud cleaner is the ideal device of the second class and the third
class solid control to treat the drilling mud.

The manifold of standard DCQJ mud cleaner could accept one-three ea 10” desander cones and eight-sixteen ea 4” desilter cones which could offer the treating capacity various
from 500GPM to 1500GPM. Anyhow, a customized quantity cone would be provided as per customer special request. DC mud cleaner can meet almost all needs for oil & gas well
drilling fluids treatment system and HDD Mud Recycling System.

In oilfield solids control system, mud cleaner is one type very efficient device in oil & gas drilling mud cleaning system. Drilling Mud Cleaners are one of the important
equipments for solids liqiud separation system. If you have any requirements please contact us freely.

Mud cleaners are the 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.

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 first-pass solids control devices of the mud cleaner are the hydrocyclones which are mounted over the vibrating screen of the shale shaker. Several hydrocyclones are used to increase the flow rate of the mud. There is also a combination of varying sized hydrocyclones. Smaller cones, typically 4″ in diameter known as desilters, remove finer silt sized solids, while the larger cones typically 10″ in diameter known as desanders removed the coarser sand sized particles.

The vibrating screen of the shaker is sized for the specific drilling operation. Lighter mud with lower solids content would use a finer screen while drilling fluid with higher solids content, known as weighted mud, would use a slightly coarser screen in order to ensure that the weighted fillers are not filtered out of the mud.

DCQJQ Series mud cleaners and are available in different configurations to meet customer requirements. 2-panel, 3-panel or 4-panel shakers are available with desanders and and/or high-volume desilters. Our new hydrocyclones technology replaces the conventional desanders and desilters cones with significant benefits.
