500 HDD Mud Circulation System is mainly used in HDD, coalbed methane exploitation and other construction projects with requirements on capacities below 500GPM. The 500GPM Mud cirulation system is widely used in China and aborad market.


Parameters of 500GPM HDD Mud Circulation System:
System Capacity: 500GPM (120m³/h)
Particle Size after Treatment: 15~44μm
Total Screen Area of Shale Shaker: 2m2
Total Screen Area of Underflow Shaker: 2m2
Processing Stage: three stages
Total System Power: 150kW
Total System Volume: 15m³

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.

Mud cleaning system normally we call it 4 phases solids control equipment, including the first phase solids control control with the shale shaker for solids up of 100 microns, and secondary solids control desander for solids up 50 microns, and the thrid solids control desilter unit to remove solids above 20 microns, the fourth solids control decanting centrifuge to separate solids of 2-7 microns.

Funtion of Solids Control

The solids control system utilized physical method to remove solid particles from the drilling mud to ensure the performance of drilling mud, and reduce the occurrence of drilling accident. Effectively save drilling costs and maximize economic benefits.

The mud cleaning system can used in oil& gas drilling, trenchless, HDD, CBM and ect. Contact us if you have interest with it.


Last month, DC Solid control manufactured a 500GPM mud recycling system for customers and has arrived at the project site after more than 20 days of shipping. The system has been assembled of the main shale shaker and mud cleaner equipment. It is planned to take one week to complete the assembly and commissioning.

DC’s mud system is not only used in oil gas drilling but also in some other drilling projects. Therefore, DC developed the drilling mud recycling system for non-oil drilling like HDD, CBM and water well drilling.

mud equipment

One type of water well drilling is for the drilling water, while the other one type of water well drilling is for water re-injection to underground for keeping the pressure of oil layer for continuous oil producing.

mud system

Last week, DC Solid control finished the production of the small mud system used for India water well drilling site. The mud system includes a double deck mud cleaner which can be used as shale shakers, also can be used as mud cleaners, a sand pump feeding for the hydrocyclone, a jet mud mixer used for mixing the drilling fluid and a mud tank.

If you are also focus on water well drilling, HDD, CBM or building construction which need the slurry treatment system, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


DC Solid control developed an enclosed solids-control system that eliminates the traditional process of shaking fluid and solids and replaces it with an enclosed, vacuum-based filtration process.

solid control system

Rather than relying on high G-forces, the new system vacuums drilling fluids through a rotating filter belt by using high airflow to separate the cuttings from the fluid. The cleaned drilling fluids are then returned to the active mud system, and the drilled solids are carried forward on the filter belt for discharge or removal.

The high airflow also preempts the need for expensive mud coolers and is particularly applicable in high-pressure/high-temperature wells. The improved separation capabilities lead to better quality mud and fewer chemicals required to maintain its properties.

With more mud recycled back to the fluid system, there is less waste, and that waste is cleaner. The new solution also generates substantially drier cuttings with mud on cuttings being reduced to less than 30 percent of drilled solids, and oil on cuttings as low as 5 percent.

DC solid control engineer designed a small desander system for Singapore clients which is mainly used for urban architecture field.

The samll desander system mainly include a desander, mud tank and a feeding pump.

The desander matched 2 pcs 10″ hydrocyclone, the material of the hydrocyclone is iron that is customized according to the clients request. The mud tank dimension is 2.5×2.2×1.8m, painted the specified-Sigma brand. The feeding pump is DSB3X2-12 sand pump, with explosion proof and IECEX certificed of the motor.


The main advantages of the small desander cleaning System which designed by TangShan DaChuan Machinery lie in organically combining the advanced mature technology in petroleum drilling and related hydrological, geothermal construction, make full use of existing equipment, greatly improving the drilling efficiency, shorten the construction cycle.

DC Solid control also can design different model mud cleaning system for HDD, CBM Trenchledd and drilling oil field to recovey the drilling mud. If you have interest with us. Please contact us freely.

When deploying a “solids control system,” there are several key hydraulic design factors that must be considered. These factors simply provide a “hydraulically balanced” solids control system, however, buyers of solids control systems should not overlook the durability, dependability and return on investment that the features and benefits bring.


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.

DC Machinery can customize all kinds solid control system according to users special request, if you have interest with us, please contact me as soon as possible.

As usual, another DC Solid control system preparing delivery to Russia. Although, Russian economi is not good and still downturn in the oil and gas market, but little impact our cooperation with Russian clients.
