mud tank system

Another set of workover rig mud tank system is shipped to Indonesia last week, it is consist of 2 mud tanks with a total tank volume 400bbl, including:
1) Shaker tank: tank capacity 200bbl, with handrails, stairs, inner stairs, walkway, control panel, lightings, mud agitator, mud gun, shale shaker
2) Mixing tank: tank capacity 200bbl, with handrails, stairs, man hole, cleaning gate, walkway, control panel and distribution box, mud agitator, mud gun, mixing hopper, mixing pump


3) IEC explosion proof electric control system for all the motors, lighting, cables, gland
4) Composite material frame shaker screens to be installed on the linear motion shale shaker, with treating capacity 528gpm, we can produce screen mesh from API 20 to API 325 as per client’s requirement, the 3 layers stainless steel wire mesh for reliable working performance.


5) Linear motion shale shaker equipped with 3 panel screens, the vibration motor is IEC EX certified Italy Oil brand vibrator, 2 ea of 1.72KW vibrator to provide G force up to 7.5G. The starter is IEC explosion proof. The shaker deck is made of stainless steel for better corrosion resistance. The shaker screens are fixed and locked by composite material wedges for convenient replacement shaker screens.
As one of the professional manufacture of solids control system & drilling waste management system in China, GN solids control can design and produce customized drilling rig mud tank system as per client’s requirement.
We can produce standard solids control equipments like shale shaker, mud cleaner, desander, desilter, centrifugal pump, vacuum degasser, centrifugal degasser, mixing hopper, mud gas separator, etc.
Also we can produce drilling waste management equipments like decanter centrifuge, vertical cuttings dryer, screw conveyor, solids vacuum pump, screw pump, and we can produce oil sludge separation system for refinery oil tank bottom cleaning sludge to recover oil and water.

Recently one set of offshore mud tank system is ready for shipment, Because of the limit space for offshore platform, the design of the mud tank system is compact and easy transportation, the technical configuration is as below:


1) One unit of linear motion shale shaker to separate the coarse solids, the shaker screens are composite material frame with stainless steel 316L wire mesh for longer working life, so that the user do not need to waste much time on replace the shaker screens. The screen lock method is by wedges with ratchet wrench for convenient locking the screens.


2) One unit of mud cleaner( desander cone, desilter cone and underflow shale shaker combination) with 2 centrifugal pump as feeding pump, the centrifugal pump is interchangeable with famous brand centrifugal pump, the hydrocyclones are 100% PU material for longer working life, if the mud temperature is higher than 80 degree, we will use metal cover outside the PU cone to prevent is from deformation.
3) One unit of decanter centrifuge with submersible slurry pump as feeding pump
4) Compact design mud tank with all the electric cables outside the mud tank for convenience replacement and check. The discharged solids/ cuttings are collected by a slant box and drop down to the screw conveyor to transfer the cuttings to the drilling waste management system.The user do not have to clean the floor and do not need extra skip to collect the waste cuttings. The handrail, walkway and stairs are installed with the mud tank.
5) The mixing hopper, mixing pump are installed on the mud mixing tank if the client need to prepare for new drilling fluids with the recovery drilling fluids.
