In oil drilling fields, solid control equipment is always the necessary part for starting the drilling work. Generally speaking, there are horizontal vacuum degasser, centrifugal sand pump, QJ mud cleaner, drilling mud tank, vertical cutting dryer and shale shaker in linear motion style. They all will be used in the drilling fields and separating work. In this post, we will focus on QJ mud cleaner and shale shaker; let us have a look that what’s the function of mud cleaner and shale shaker for drilling fields.
Why there will be mud cleaner and shale shaker?
With the development of oil drilling fields, we need find some equipment or system to provide higher working efficiency for our oil drilling work, especially for the separating drilling solids. There is no doubt that we have developed a system called “solid control system”, and mud cleaner and shale shaker are the most important parts for the whole system. That’s why we found that mud cleaner will cooperate with shale shaker in separating work program.
Just like tricanter centrifuge is the core equipment for Slurry Oil Recovery field, high frequency vibrating screens is the main part for mineral industry; mud clear and shale shaker are the necessary equipment for the whole drilling solids separating flow.
Just as we mentioned before that mud cleaner is the combination of mud de-sander and mud de-silter, that is to say West Petro QJ mud cleaner series will provide the both function of separating mud and separating sand in your oil drilling fields, that’s why it has been so popular in overseas marketing.
For shale shaker, there are linear motion shale shaker and balanced shale shaker for different fields, and linear motion shale shaker is more popular in overseas marketing. Commonly, we will chose centrifugal sand pump or centrifugal screw pump to transport the drilling solids upon on the surface of KS steel frame shaker screen, with the different size of shaker screen mesh, we will let the solids be in different sizes, which could help us find the useful elements and pass the useless solids. On the other hand, after the solids have been separated by mud cleaner and shale shaker, they will be stored in the drilling mud tank, or transported by centrifugal sand pump for decanter centrifuge, which will be the next step and topic we will share in soon later.
About Mud Cleaner & Shale Shaker for Drilling, we will stop here now, and if you have any interesting about our other solid control equipment, such as shear pump, or our drilling waste management, please feel free to contact us for more details.
