Mud Cleaner or mud conditioner is combination of cyclones units & shale shaker. It is popular applied for onshore drillings & offshore drilling operations. The cyclones normally have two sizes: 10inch size cyclones and 4inch size cyclones. The 10inch cyclones called Desander hydro-cyclones which can separate bigger particles from 40~100microns. However, the 4inch cyclones called desilter hydro-cyclones can separate 15~73microns smaller particles.
Mud Cleaner is normally installed after shale shaker. The fine drilling fluids passed shaker screen will drop down to catch tank, and the centrifugal pump will transfer the drilling fluids and feed to cyclones in proper pressure. Only with suitable feeding pressure, the cyclones can work well and separate the solids particles expected.
Correct operation of mud cleaner can remove more fine solids which are not necessary for the drilling operation, and reduce the working burden of decanter centrifuge. Keeping good condition of decanter centrifuge can help to save lots of operation cost for the whole mud system.
DNV Certified SKID MOUNTED Mud Cleaner is available for offshore drilling operations. Except for DNV certificate SKID, offshore platform have much higher request on paintings because of the corrosive atmosphere with high salt content. We adopt marine anti-corrosive paintings with 3layers for much better performance.
