Mud cleaner process flow to treat drilling fluid


Mud cleaner is a combination of desanders and desilters mounted over a shaker with a fine mesh screen , a mud is fed to the inlet of the hydrocyclone to separate particles and the underflow passes to the fine screen mesh where in particles larger than barite are discharged and thrown away .In most drilling operations , a mud cleaner is installed in its mud systems . It is usually located in a mud tank in the same location as with the desilter .


The weighted mud flows to the inlet head section of the desander and 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 returning and recovering then the clean mud .
