As the original and professional manufacturer of solid control equipment, WestPetro could provide the full equipment for drilling waste management and solid control system. One more thing, in 2015, we have designed and developed the new tricanter centrifuge for our slurry oil recovery unit, which is mainly used for oil based mud solids. While in this post, we will share some necessary information about mud cleaner: why we should use mud cleaner in solid control system in the whole oil drilling fields’ work.
Just from the following picture of solid control system in Turmin Oil Field, there are horizontal vacuum degasser, QJ mud cleaner, and linear motion shale shaker and decanter centrifuge. The whole equipment has been mounted on the top of the drilling mud tank, which could let the whole equipment in a big unit and to provide a high working efficiency for our oil drilling fields.
As we all know that the main function of solid control system is to separate the drilling solids into water and mud, while in the whole working flow, we should use some equipment to separate the drilling solids into sand and mud firstly. Generally, we could use mud desander and mud de-silter to solve this problem. However, mud de-sander and mud de-silter are two items, which will increase the cost and time to use these two items. Therefore, we designed the drilling mud cleaner to solve this problem. With the help of QJ mud cleaner, we could separate the drilling solids into different sand and mud easily, and it could be handled easily also. That’s why mud cleaner has been popular used in drilling fields by almost all of the drilling service companies in home and overseas.
Besides the above content, we should say that mud cleaner should work with some other solid control items. For example, we should use horizontal vacuum degasser and vertical cutting dryer to cooperate with mud cleaner to separate the drilling solids. Generally speaking, vacuum degasser could help us to separate the drilling gas from the drilling solids; and then we should transport the sand and mud by centrifugal sand pump onto the shale shaker’ shaker screen for further separating. Anyway, mud cleaner is not the single one for solid control system.
About why we should use mud cleaner in solid control system, we will stop here. Please feel free to contact us if you have any comments about WestPetro mud cleaner or shear pump, your inquiry will be highly appreciated.
