the use of a desilter on a weighted mud is prohibitively expensive (due to loss
of barite), and since ultra-fine screens are incapable of handling the entire
mud stream, another type of solids removal device is necessary. A unit
consisting of both of these devices eliminates their individual limitations. It
is the drilling mud
A main action of drilling mud
cleaner is eliminate the solid particles whose particle size is bigger than the
barite, and recycles the barite in drilling fluid. When the weighted drilling
fluid pass the hydrocyclone, a large number of barites in underflow pass the
screen, the barites will be returned to cycle tank (at the same time, some
debris also will be returned to the tank).
DC Machinery is a professional
manufacturer of solids
control equipment. The following is the feature of mud cleaner which
produced by DC Machinery.
1 The main structure of mud cleaner can
be divided into two parts, the desander and desilter are installed on the
upside. The base is equipped
with the chute, and a shale shaker is installed on the chute. The structure is
compact, and occupies small space.
2 Between the main inlet pipe
and outlet pipe is equipped with butterfly valves, can adjust the work numbers
of desander and desilter at any time, easy to operate and maintain.
3 The feed port adopts
tangent feed, smooth transport, for improving separation efficiency. The inner
surface of mud cleaner is smooth, and the flow channel is rational.
4 Different numbers of
hydrocyclones of desander and desilter can be matched according to the
requirement of customers.
