Tag Archives: Mud Cleaner Design

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.

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.
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.

With our in-house engineering and design capabilities, DC Solid control can integrate any number of hydrocyclone arrangements with any of our shakers. In all cases, DC Solid control’s hydrocyclones come with polyurethane bodies, where erosion resistant inserts are available. Standard hydrocyclone cone sizes available include 4”, 5”, 10”, and 12” and can be provided in arrangements of one to 20 cones.

The first step in using a mud cleaner is to send the mud through a hydrocyclone, because it would be too thick for the cleaner to effectively work with. A hydrocyclone is a device that uses force to push purified mud through the top of the cyclone as thicker particles pass through the bottom section. Anything that goes through the bottom section then meets the mud cleaner.

Drilling fluids mud cleaner is the second or third stage drilling fluids solids control equipment in drilling fluids recycling system. This Mini cleaner will handle the solids particle after being treated by the first grade separation equipment. Following is the introduction of the Mini mud cleaner.

Work Process of Mud cleaner:

The weighted mud flows to the inlet head section of the desander and/or desilter entering the hydrocyclones for separation of particles. Mud leaving the underflow is further screened with fine mesh to separate larger particles allowing only barite-size particles to pass through the screen.

Features of Mini Mud Cleaner:

High wear resistance: The cyclone uses special polyurethane with high wear resistance.
Uniform Pressure: Circular tower separation and feeding pipe with heavy caliber make cyclones have uniform pressure.
High Separation Efficiency: Tangent feeding and streamline design improve separation efficiency.
Multi-Purpose: The shale shaker for this item can be treated as level A shale shaker through tube shunt.
Easy to Handle: With digital control panel, you can use it and handle it as easy as possible.
Easy to Connect with Other Equipment: Mud cleaner could be easy to connect with other related solid control equipment to work together.

Mud cleaner is a normal model of our company,we can design customized cost-effective mud Cleaner for customers special needs.Our mud cleaner can meet almost all needs for oil & gas well drilling fluids treatment system and HDD Mud Recycling System.

Mud cleaner is a combination of desander and desilter and mounted over a shale shaker with a fine mesh screen. A mud is fed to the inlet of hydrocyclone to separate particles and the underflow passes to the fine mesh where in particles larger than barite are discarded and thrown away. It is the second and third phase cleaning equipment for a whole solids control system.

How To Choose a Mud Cleaner: 

Mud flow: Mud cleaner mud flow is decided by desander & desilter size and qty. The desander cone normally choose 10 inch size and desilter cone choose 4 inch size. Once cone size is fixed, the mud flow will be fixed depending on cone qty.
Bottom shaker: The bottom shaker will work to dry solids out of desander & desilter cone nozzle. The larger shaker deck will help for dry product and smaller shaker deck will save cost.
Electrical standard: Different area may require different standard like IECEX, ATEX, UL, DGMS, etc. Before order any equipment, please confirm electrical standard.
Customized design: Cone size and qty can be customized design to reach different mud flow and performance.

The 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.
