Herrenknecht Separation Plant

Herrenknecht is a respectable enterprise.

I am lucky to join the 2016 Bauma Exhibation on Apr 11-17, 2016, and have a close contact with Herrenknecht culture, people and product.

As the slurry separation plant manufacturer, always pay great attention to the leaders in this industry worldwide.  Here is demo of Herrenknecht typical separation plant design.

The slurry from the discharge pump goes to the coarse screen firstly, then go to the 1st compartment of the tank, the 1st gravel pump takes the slurry from the 1st compartment to the desander for further separation with the cut point reaching 60 um, and the cleaner fluids goes to the 2nd tank compartment. The 2nd gravel pump has the slurry go to the desilter processing from the 2nd compartment, reaching the cut point 20 um, and the cleaner fluids go to the 3rd compartment, which can be used for the pipe jacking machine by the charging pump.

 

Desander Manufacturer

The desander manufacturer is by Brightway.It’s for the second and third solid control equipment, mud cleaner is combine the hydrocyclone desander, hydrocyclone desilter and shale shaker, the mud cleaner is composite the above there equipment performance, has the characterize of large processing capacity, quick processing, and long service screen life, convenient maintenance, compact structure, etc, little energy consumption, small cover, etc. This equipment is the ideal equipment for the O&G drilling industry.

2. Character

(1) The shaker screen adopt the Orifice plate screen shake screen, it can adopt the 20-200 bores mesh, besides the screen is flat net, so the mud can evenly divided, it enlarged the screen actual filter area.

(2) Screen mesh compression uses the crushing pressure, convenient replacement screen is simple and compact, reliable and has changed the traditional bolt tightening or reel tension stretched way, make the screen and the screen basket stick together tightly.

(3) The screen box angle is adjustable, regulating mechanism adopts screw transmission, convenient adjustment and reliable work.

(4) The equipment combine the mud desander and vibrating screen as a whole, reduce the occupied area, bring great convenience for the site operation and rig move.

二. The application and working principal of the mud cleaner

The mud cleaner is the first and second cleaning equipment of the drilling fluid solid control system, it process a large amount drilling cuttings discharged from the drill well, and suit for the next separation equipment, the mud cleaner performance and quality is direct influence the next equipment performance. This screen is design according the screen area and liner vibration track.

Vibrator makes the screen box for reciprocating movement, the movement of solid particles with the sieve box in the mud and sieve surface, thus to finish the solid-liquid separation.

Mud solids control equipment

Trenchless Horizontal Directional through the current global development time is not very long , especially without a sound system in the drilling and mud processing, today’s solids control equipment will be used largely on oil process system into over- simplified absorption after transformation. Mainland trenchless horizontal directional solid phase separation through mud and oil solid phase separation is somewhat similar , there are usually diluted , precipitation and mechanical removal methods mud circulation system precipitation : in that at the start of the cross , are buried in the first position one or more drilling mud tank, the return of the drilling mud out of the prepared slurry introduced into the pool , after some time a precipitate, the solution the pump draws the liquid into the upper layer of solid mud circulation system, the filter bottom of the solid phase . Advantages: simple , low cost and low energy consumption . Disadvantages: large venues , the sedimentation rate is slow, difficult to remove the bottom of the solid phase .

Brightway hook strip flat shaker screen

Drilling fluids hook strip flat shaker screen is employed to get rid of detritus from well boreholes throughout drilling operations. These fluids square measure designed with mixture particles to possess properties that promote the removal of the sand sized particles however to not have excessive friction drag. Of course,in thus doing,the fluid itself assumes this cuttings burden, and if the cuttings aren’t far from the fluid,it terribly quickly loses its ability to wash the outlet and build thick filter cakes. To change on web site utilization and utilise of the drilling mud, cuttings should be frequently with efficiency removed.The drilling fluids square measure recycled by removal the sand particles whereas retentive the colloids.

The hook strip flat shaker screen is that the initial major solids management instrumentality during a series that’s accustomed condition the drilling fluids for recycle to the borehole. sedimentary rock shakers method drilling fluids and take away most of the massive particles in solids management instrumentality project.

The proper operateing of a sedimentary rock shaker is significant for alternative separation processes or solids management instrumentality to function effectively. This makes the sedimentary rock shaker the “first line of defense’ in solids system. The potency of operation of alternative solids management instrumentality depends heavily on the correct and effective functioning of sedimentary rock shaker,thus unburdening alternative solids management instrumentality like desanders,desilter,mud cleaners and carafe centrifuges. Hence,the drilling fluids additionally referred to as lubricator kicking off of the well is initial fed onto drilling fluids sedimentary rock shaker to get rid of the coarse particles from current drilling fluids. The sedimentary rock shaker contain screens of mesh size applicable for the dimensions and kind of solids they’re needed to get rid of. There {are also|also square measure|are} reports of alternative instrumentality like rotating separators that are used as an alternate to sedimentary rock shaker once drilling with oil primarily based drilling fluids.

What is the effect solids control equipment exerts on drilling project two?

During the operation, the drilling fluids containing amount of cuttings will be purified step by step to remove harmful solids and rematched to achieve proper viscosity and composition.The treated drilling fluids will be good enough for drilling operation again.

One of the most critical roles of this mud is as a lubricant. Drilling causes tremendous friction, which can damage the drills or the formation being drilled. Drilling mud cuts down on the friction, lowering the heat of drilling and reducing the risk of friction-related complications. The mud also acts as a carrier for the materials being drilled, with material becoming suspended in the mud and then being carried up the drill to the surface.
