What are the Differences of Cutting Dryer and Mud Cleaner

As the professional manufacturer of solid control system, there are a lot of different type’s solid control mechanical items in WestPetro, which have been designed and manufactured by ourselves. For example, there is horizontal vacuum degasser and vertical vacuum degasser used to separate the gas from the drilling solids; there is vertical cutting dryer, playing an important role in drilling waste management fields; we always use it to drying the solids so that we could prevent the environment pollution; there is QJ mud cleaner, which has the strong ability to provide the function of separating the drilling mud and drilling sand; it is popular in almost oil drilling fields; there is also another one, shale shaker, we also call it as drying shaker, with the special designed steel frame shaker screen, the linear shale shaker could provide the necessary function in the work of separating the drilling solids.

In this post, WestPetro will share some differences between vertical cutting dryer and QJ mud cleaner.

There are 3 differences between cutting dryer and mud cleaner.

Part 1: They have different structures. For vertical cutting dryer, no matter for LL915 vertical cutting dryer, or for LL900 small size cutting dryer, they have a steel made base to support the main parts, which contains EX proof main motor, special designed “cutting dryer steel screen”, control cabinet and so on. While for QJ mud cleaner, it is a combination of de-sander and de-silter, and its base is made from parts of shale shaker, that is to say, the QJ mud cleaner is a combination of de-sander, de-silter and shale shaker. We could adjust the different through the image directly.

Part 2: They have different functions. Commonly, WestPetro cutting dryer is usually used to drying the drilling solids, which is usually should be transported and fed by screw conveyor; they solids dried by cutting dryer will be less pollution for the drilling fields’ environment, that’s the reason why our vertical cutting dryer is and will be popular in oil drilling fields. While for QJ mud cleaner, it is the necessary part in separating work flow; its main function is to separate the mud and sand from the drilling solids; generally speaking, the solids should be cut into small sizes by shear pump and then transported by centrifugal sand pump or screw pump from the drilling mud tank. Of course, both of the equipment will be used individually.

Part 3: They have been worked in different single fields. Usually, vertical cutting dryer is and will be the core part for drilling waste management unit, and it will work in drilling waste management fields; while for mud cleaner, it is the main part of solid control system, and it will be worked in oil drilling fields to separate the drilling solids.

The above 3 items are the big differences for vertical cutting dryer and mud cleaner, we learned it clearly and then we can do a right choice. Except this example, we will also share some other equipment’s difference for your reference, such as the difference of high frequency vibrating screens and shale shaker.

Anyway, please feel free to contact us if you have any interesting about WestPetro solid control equipment, we will give you a fast response with your any inquiry.
