The system is composed of drilling mud tank, five level solids control equipments (shale shaker, degasser, desander, desilter and centrifuge), pipelines and some auxiliary equipments (pumps, agitator, mixer, etc.).


In the design requirement of solids control system, Usually the effective volume of mud tank is 75% of the total volume. The design of mud tank needed to reach the following requirements:

1 Mud tank should be able to accommodate the largest circulation of drilling fluid in the drilling process.

2 The whole strength of the mud tank should content the requirements of transport and use the density of 2.5 g/cm3 of drilling fluid.

3 Between each cabin in tank should be set overflow port and communicating pipe according to the requirement of technological process.

4 All of the sealing should be oil resistance, acid and alkali resistant.

Commonly, tanks are customized-made according to the detail situation of the worksite or the system requirements. The dimensions differ from one system to another.
