desilter

Recently one batch of drilling mud desander and desilter are ready for shipment to China oilfield service company. There are 3 types mud cleaner/ desander / desilter traditionally, we have 2 options for desander, one is bare desander without bottom shaker, one type is desander cone with bottom shale shaker, which is to collect more useful drilling fluids. Desilter also have 2 options, one is bare desilter without bottom shaker, another type desilter is desilter cone with bottom shale shaker, which is also called mud cleaner. There are also 2 types mud cleaner, one type is desilter cone and bottom shaker 2 in 1, the other type mud cleaner is 3 in 1, including desander cone, desilter cone and bottom shale shaker. We can design different type fluids discharge and solids discharge trough as per client’s requirement and tank space layout.


We can provide different treating capacity desander, desilter and mud cleaner by adding different qty desander cone and desilter cone, with 500gpm, 1000gpm, 1500gpm treating capacity. The hydrocyclone is made of 100% polyurethane, the max drilling fluids temperature can be used is up to 80 degree. The color has option of red and black. The standard inlet pipe size is 6 inch, the standard outlet pipe size is 8 inch, as per customer’s requirement, we can also make it 10 to 12 inch.


The desander, desilter and mud cleaner is used after the primary shale shaker, and after that, we will use degasser ( vacuum degasser or centrifugal degasser) to separate the gas from the gas cut mud. Compared with the bare desander and desilter without bottom shale shaker, the mud cleaner can recycle more useful drilling fluids, and the discharged solids gets more drier.
If you need a desander, desilter or mud cleaner, pls contact with GN solids control.
