And since each mud tank can be constructed in a variety of sizes and styles based on your application requirements, it’s easy to customize our equipment to your project needs.

Mud Tanks are available for the storage and mixing of oil and water based drilling mud. Tanks feature 500 barrel capacities with epoxy linings. This Solid mounted tank is designed to provide easy viewing of the tank contents. Interior walls are smooth for easy cleanout and speedy deployment. Can be deployed on land and barges.

Last Month, DC Solid control shipped a 12m big rectangle mud tank to Dubai for the trial order to test. The mud tank dimension was appointed by the user and each manufacturing process and material are according to the users special requirements.

The mud tank is an open-top container, typically made of steel, to store drilling fluid on a drilling rig. They are also called mud pits or mud tanks. The tanks are usually open-top and have walkways on top to allow workers to inspect the fluid levels in the tanks. Other equipment is often mounted on top and the walkways allow access to that equipment. Recently, offshore drilling rigs have closed-in tanks for safety.

The Dubai drilling rig normally has two mud tanks. One tank is sectioned off into compartments that may include a settling tank, or sand trap, to allow sand and other solids in the drilling fluid to precipitate before flowing into the next compartment. Other compartments sometimes have agitators used to stir the fluid.

Mud tanks for solids control systems are divided into Square tanks and Cone-shaped tanks according to the shape of the tank bottom. The body of the tank is made by welding the steel plate and section, using the smooth cone-shape structure or the corrugated structure. If you have special needs of mud tanks, welcome to contact DC Solid control. We can design it according to your request.

Diesel Oil Tank is special equipment for storing oil used for diesel generator set in drilling and fieldwork,  which mainly consists of storage of tank, self priming centrifugal oil pump, filter, flow meter, explosion-proof liquid-level switch, liquid level meter, elevated oil tank & manifold, stainless steel valve.

The diesel oil tank can be put in the skid before transportation and the pipelines of elevated tank & storage tank do not need to be dismantled. The top platform is made of plate and there are drain holes on the bottom.The diesel tank also has dust suction valve,spring and wave cutter inside.

DC superior quality diesel tanks material is 10mm carbon steel. Water leakage test before they leave the factory, to ensure tank body no leakage. Sand blasting before paint. Japan Kansai spraying epoxy zinc rich primer 60um + intermediate paint 60um and polyurethane paint 60um to guarantee corrosion resistance.

DC solid control also can made mud tank, water tank, oil tank with different volume and types. If you have interest with it, please contact us.
