Water based mud system is also called WBM, which is the necessary system for oil drilling fields; as the professional manufacturer of solid control system and water based mud system, WestPetro could provide you the full equipment and technical support service for your onsite drilling work. In this post, we will talk about WBM (water based mud system).
Generally speaking, water based mud system has been made up of some special solid control equipment, such as linear motion shale shaker, QJ mud cleaner, and even horizontal vacuum degasser. From the following picture, we could learn the whole necessary equipment for the water based mud system.
For the water based mud system, its main function is to separate the oil from the drilling solids, especially from the oil based mud, which is a kind of common solids in almost all of the oil and gas drilling fields. For some end users, they need the special screw pump and centrifugal sand pump to work with oil based mud. Of course, the equipment needs higher requirement.
For the water based mud system’s working flow, it will go like this: we should use centrifugal sand pump or screw conveyor to transport the drilling solids into the mud tank, and then transport the solids to the decanter centrifuge firstly, after the solids has been separated by decanter centrifuge (in some situation, we may use tricanter centrifuge), we will transport the separated solids onto the surface of the shaker screen – it is the part of the linear motion shale shaker. After finished this step, maybe we should arrange the vertical cutting dryer work on, for we should ensure the last solids will be no harm to the drilling environment, that is also the main function of vertical cutting dryer and it is also the main part for drilling waste management.
Water based mud system is our main system for oil drilling fields, and we will put more energy on this product line in 2016. Please feel free to contact us if you have any interesting and comments on the water based mud system or some solid control items, we will response you at the first time. Besides the equipment we mentioned above, you could also get the necessary information about polyurethane screen and high frequency vibrating screens, which is the core equipment for mining fields.
