Just as we all know, drilling mud tank is a kind of basic solid control equipment for our oil drilling fields. In most situations, drilling mud tank just plays a role of storing the drilling solids or drilling water in the onsite drilling work. Actually, besides this function, mud tank is also a necessary part for solid control system, drilling waste management and slurry oil recovery unit. In this post, we will share some information about drilling mud tank’s function in oil drilling fields.
Mud Tank with Solid Control System
As the professional manufacturer of solid control equipment, solid control system is our “Plus” vision, for which could help us to improve the whole separating working efficiency in oil drilling fields. We must to say almost all of the drilling fields will need this system to start the separating work.
Commonly, for the solid control system, there are different types solid control equipment will be used in the system. Usually, we will design the horizontal vacuum degasser to separate the drilling solids gas; QJ mud cleaner to separate the drilling sand and drilling mud; linear motion shale shaker for separating the drilling solids; and so on. For the whole solid control system, drilling mud tank plays a basic but important role, for the whole solid control items will be mounted on the top of the mud tank, which could let them be in a total union. Therefore, drilling mud tank is a kind of important equipment for solid control system.
Actually, not only for solid control system, mud tank is the same important one for drilling waste management and slurry oil recovery.
For drilling waste management, we will design to mount the decanter centrifuge with VFD type and centrifugal sand pump on the top of the drilling mud tank; besides these, there is a core one called vertical cutting dryer for the whole drilling waste management unit. We will use cutting dryer to dry the drilling solids so that we could prevent the drilling pollution to protect the drilling environment.
While for slurry oil recovery unit, we should let the tricanter centrifuge be mounted on the top of the mud tank, which could let the oil recovery unit works well. As the core part, tricanter centrifuge could provide the ability to separate the drilling mud, water and oil from the drilling wastes solids; therefore, tricanter centrifuge has win a popular praise by overseas end users.
Of course, there is also an exception. For high frequency vibrating screens, we could not use mud tank in this working senses. For this item is the core part for mineral industry and its main spare part – polyurethane screen is a kind of high tech shaker screen product line in WestPetro, which could provide as long as 6 months working time. So, even if this item does not use mud tank, please feel free to contact us if you have any interesting about it.
Just as we mentioned above, mud tank is a basic, but important one for our oil drilling fields. Please let us know if you have any comments about this item, your any inquiry will be highly appreciated.
