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.

The five stages of solids control equipments 2

Second stage solids control equipment: vacuum degasser

Vacuum degasser separate H2S and other gases. It is helpful for reducing cone part abrasion on desander and desilter during further handling.It also can beused as mud agitator with big power.

Third stage solids control equipment:Desander

Desander is used for separating 45-74μm particle from drilling mud. It is adopted with flexible and replaceable cones for option ( 1pc to 3pc,dia 10″ or 12″).Good wear resistance for cone material with PU and high-chromium iron for option.Smaller size motor and lower position deck,making sure lighter participating vibration weight,getting bigger treatment capacity.

Fifth stage solids control equipment: Decanter Centrifuge

Brightway solids control series Decanter Dentrifuge is used for separating tiny particle(dia above 2μm).The decanter centrifuge is versatile for different drilling mud with various proportion and viscosity.Brightway solids control is the most advanced decanter centrifuge supplier in China,and has won high recognition and praise from domestic and abroad with science core technique and a lot of innovative patents.

The Structure of Shale Shaker

Solids control is a technique used in drilling rig to separate the solids in the drilling fluids that are crushed by the drill bits and carried out of the well surface. Normally solid control system is consist of five stages, including mud tank, shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, centrifuge. Shale shaker is used to separate the big solids with diameter above 75μm, and 45~74μm for desander, and 15~44μm for desilter. Sometimes desander & desilter are combined as high efficient mud cleaner.

When air enters into the drilling fluids, vacuum degasser is used to separate the air. If no air in the mud, the degasser would work as a big mud agitator. All these equipments are mounted on the top of the mud tank. After separating the solids, the clean mud would be pumped into the borehole again.

 

The shale shaker is the first stage of solids control equipment in drilling purification system. It can remove cuttings above 75μm brought from the drilling well to leave the liquid with smaller particles into the tanks below, which will flow into next grade solids control equipment to be treated.

shale shaker
Shale shakers consist of the following parts:
Hopper – The Hopper, commonly called the “base” serves as both a platform for the shaker and collection pan for the fluid processed by the shaker screens, also known as “underflow”. The hopper can be ordered according to the needs of the drilling fluid, aka “mud” system. It can come in different depths to accommodate larger quantities of drilling fluid as well as have different ports for returning the underflow to the mud system.

Mud Cleaning System for Diamond Drilling

Diamond drilling is becoming more and more popular now as following the diamond stone get cheapper and cheapper .

 

Diamond core drilling uses a diamond bit, which rotates at the end of drill rod (or pipe).  The opening at the end of the diamond bit allows a solid column of rock to move up into the drill pipe and be recovered at the surface.  Standard core sizes are 7/8 inch (EX), 1 3/16 inch (AX), 1 5/8 inch (BX) and 2 1/8 inch (NX).

Most drill rods are 10 feet long. After the first 10 feet is drilled, a new section of pipe is screwed into the top end, so the combination of pipes can be driven another 10 feet into the ground.  The diamond bit is rotated slowly with gentle pressure while being lubricated with water to prevent overheating.  The drill depth is estimated by keeping count of the number of drill rods.
