Water based mud system is also called WBM, it is the new and main part for our System Product Line. From 2015, we have developed OBM, WBM for oil drilling fields and High frequency vibrating screens for mining fields. In this post, we will introduce some necessary information about water based mud system.
Generally speaking, water based mud drilling cuttings are well treated by the unit, the drilling mud is recycled and cuttings are solidified and well shaped in the whole working flow. Commonly, shaped cuttings are easy to stock and spread the road. While by using water based mud system, we could decrease the drilling cost and make full use of the drilling wastes for better result.
From the following picture in 3D of WBM, we could learn that there are 7 main items, and most of them are belonging for solid control equipment, and is also the necessary part for solid control system. They are:
1. Linear motion shale shaker with KS steel shaker screen;
2. QJ mud cleaner for separating the drilling mud and drilling sand;
3. Horizontal vacuum degasser for separating the drilling gas from the drilling solids;
4. Horizontal decanter centrifuge used to separate the drilling solids into dry mud;
5. Screw conveyor used to transport the drilling solids to decanter centrifuge or vertical cutting dryer, it is also the necessary part for drilling waste management; in some cases, we commonly use this item to work with centrifugal sand pump and shear pump to reach a better working result;
6. Drilling mud tank is the necessary basic equipment for WBM; it is also called frame filter in the whole water based mud system;
7. The last one is Brick Press Equipment, it is seldom used in other systems; just like tricanter centrifuge for slurry oil recovery, they are both used in some special oil drilling situation.
As the professional solid control equipment manufacturer, WestPetro design and developed the new water based mud system for drilling waste management fields. We expect our system could provide necessary help for your drilling waste management work. Please feel free to contact us if you have any inquiry about water based mud system or related solid control equipment, your any inquiry will be highly appreciated.
