The basic information

Drilling fluid equipments usually mean the equipments for drilling mud processing on various well drilling. The equipments are used on processing drilling fluid such as purification, weighting, unweighting, mixing, configuration, etc.

Whole unit of drilling mud equipments will come to complete system for drilling fluid circulating or recycling. More and more contractors realize the necessity of processing mud during the well drilling. The equipments for drilling fluid save much cost and make more cost-effective

Drilling fluid equipments

Including shale shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, decanter centrifuge, mud agitator, jet mud mixer, centrifugal pump, etc.

For shale shaker usually there is linear motion and balanced elliptical shaker; the desander and desilter can be combined together as mud cleaner, otherwise desander or desilter can be used separately accoring to clients’ demand; decanting centrifuge can separate particles bigger than 2~7microns; jet mud mixer used in configuration or mixing mud; for the other equipments, we can call them as assistant device.

Drilling Fluid Equipment

Drilling Fluid Equipment

Different well drilling will request different drilling fluid and different fluid system. In oil and gas drilling industry or when the drilled well is deeper than 4km there should be degassers, such as vacuum degasser, poor boy degasser, as well as flare ignition device.

Equipments usage

As we know there are many different well drillings. Just as we told above, the equipments can be used in vertical well and horizontal well.  For vertical will hold oil and gas drilling, water well, geothermal construction, coal and mine exploration, diamond drilling; while for horiaontal well there will be HDD, civil construction, tunnelling, mine, etc.

The fluid equipments can be used on all above well drillings. They can be used as whole complete system or selected separate one subject to actual work condition

Mud equipment manufacturer

In this industry, there are so many capable manufacturer in the world with high fame. Such as Derrick, Mi-Swaco, GN Solids Control, Fluid system, Nov Brandt, Kemtron, etc.

Choose mud equipments manufacturer should according to customers’ actual preference, also the drilling project location, the project schedule, etc.
