Tag Archives: Drilling 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.

Usually, mud cleaner is the second stage equipment of whole solid control system. With the combination of a desander and desilter mounted over a powerful multi-functional shale shaker, DC Solid control’s line of mud cleaners offer both high performance and versatility for the operator.

The underflow screen is like having another shale shaker which receives the waste from the cyclone nozzle for additional processing. This is positioned so that the mud cleaner can recover more of the drilling mud. Our mud cleaner is the perfect piece of equipment in the second and third stage of the drilling mud treatment.

This integration of advanced equipment puts forth a unit that can handle large volumes of circulating fluids and is able to retain fluid integrity. Features such as our wedge-lock fastening system, mud bypass gate, and explosion proof enclosures all allow for ease of use.

Our pride is truly expressed in our work through our craftsmanship, research, design, and the overall practicality of our equipment.The mud cleaner is effective in processing both weighted and unweighted drilling mud during mud systems in removing and drying solids whilst retaining the expensive drilling liquid. Used correctly the drilling mud cleaner would lower both drilling-fluid and disposal costs.

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.

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.

The mud cleaner combination consists of two sets of hydro cyclones: a desander to eliminate particles of 120 – 60 μ, and a desilter which eliminates particles smaller than 60 to 20 μ.

The combination of varying physical mud cleaning principles results in a high capacity mud cleaning combination with high a operational efficiency and minimum maintenance, repair and replacement costs.
