What’s the Main Equipment for Solid Control System?

WestPetro could provide the necessary solid control equipment for oil drilling fields. Recent years, with the requirement of high working efficiency in drilling industry, a new system has been designed and developed in some big solid control manufacturer, and the system is called “solid control system”. WestPetro as the leading original manufacturer of solid control equipment and drilling waste management unit, the “solid control system” is not a problem for us.

How to understand solid control system? As the professional solid control system manufacturer, we have our own understanding about this system.

In WestPetro’s words, solid control system is the combination of different solid control equipment, though our technical design and put the reasonable equipment at the right place, and then they will work together well. In that case, the whole solid control system will provide you a high working efficiency in different oil drilling fields.

What’s the Main Equipment for Solid Control System?

Facing so much equipment in solid control fields, what’s the main equipment for the solid control system? What’s the reasonable equipment for the unit? That’s really a big question and we should learn it cleanly. With the following content, we hope you will learn more about this problem, if it puzzled you a lot.

The first main equipment for solid control system should be the vacuum degasser, why? We could analytics from the function of vacuum degasser. Generally speaking, horizontal vacuum degasser will be used to separate the gas from the drilling solids. What’s the reason to do like that? Because we should do everything to prevent any dangerous elements in oil & gas drilling fields. That’s why we should put the vacuum degasser as the first role.

The second one should be mud cleaner. WestPetro QJ mud cleaner has a long history of over 10 years, and it has the mutual functions of de-sander & de-silter to separate the drilling mud solids and drilling sand solids. In solid control system, the main working target is to separate the drilling solids into mud and sand individually, which could make the rest separating work easily. Exactly to say, WestPetro QJ mud cleaner has the powerful function.

The third equipment, we think it should be shale shaker (with necessary steel frame shaker screen). Actually, after the drilling solids have been transported and fed into vacuum degasser and mud cleaner, the third step is going with shale shaker. Commonly, we still need to be transported the solids onto the shale shaker, or we could say onto the surface of shaker screen. The equipment of transporting we should use is centrifugal sand pump or screw pump; and we may use shear pump to cut the drilling solids into small one if they are in big size. With the different design of the shaker screen’s mesh, we could get the drilling solids separated in different sizes. More details about the scene of shale shaker, please watch the following videos.

The fourth equipment should be the decanter centrifuge. In solid control system, VFD decanter centrifuge has been popularly used, which is also the popular one for drilling waste management. In this step, we could not only get the result of separating, but also we could separate the oil from the drilling solids, even if the oil is just a little part.

Of course, the whole equipment must be mounted on the top of drilling mud tank, which is a kind of basic equipment for both solid control system and drilling waste management (vertical cutting dryer is the core equipment for this system), but it is a kind of powerful equipment.

Besides the solid control equipment we mentioned here, in 2015, we have designed and developed new items, such as high frequency vibrating screens for mining fields and tricanter centrifuge for slurry oil recovery industry, which have both won a popular appreciation from the overseas partners and end users. Therefore, please feel free to contact us if you have any interesting about our solid control system and equipment, we will response your inquiry at the first time.
