Rotary Drilling Rigs Mud System
Solid control systems owe their efficiency to the overall performance of the components that will be in the mud separation system. To control the subsurface pressure, to lubricate the drill bit, to stabilise the wellbore, these are all functions of drilling mud including other purposes in a
mud separation system.
Rotary drilling rigs mud system can also be used in different industries for different purposes.The main separation equipment on a mud separation unit are the shale shaker, mud cleaner, the desander, the desilter as well as the decanter centrifuges. They are however available across different sizes and applications but they do maintain the same principle of liquids and mud separation.
Two options of shale shakers are used on a mud separation system. There are primary shakers and secondary shakers, primary shakers make use of coarse screens so as to take our larger cuttings while the secondary shakers consists of fine mesh screens and this enables it to get rid of the finest particles.
There is additional separation that is done on a mud separation unit, this is done so that the finest particles can be totally removed from the system. . The mechanical equipment that is used at this stage is inclusive of hydrocyclone desanders and desilters, mud cleaners and rotary bowl decanting centrifuges .
A liquid mud plant has different types of tanks that are useful for storage and mixing the drilling mud, the dredge slurry dewatering system is used for dredging slurry treatment to remove solids and discharge can water on a mud separation unit.
Solid removal units are usually functional for diamond core drilling in the mining industries and they are used to recycle drilling fluids and water. There are also mud separation systems that are used of oil and gas. The oil and gas drilling solids control system makes it possible for the reuse of drilling fluids that would have come from oil and gas drilling.
