Mud tank systems are a critical component of any drilling operation for maximizing solids control efficiency and effectiveness.
Mud Tank Feature & Benefits
Mud tank is an indispensable part in mud circulation system, and it can complete weighting, mixing, solid-liquid separating, degassing and other processes. Drilling rig mud tank carries the mud circulating between well head and mud pump. The solids phase particles in mud are separated stage by stage through relevant solids control equipment on mud tanks as to make the fluid meet drilling requirements after mixing and weighting system
Drilling mud tank classification
Based on functions, mud tank includes active tank, circulating tank, mixing tank or suction tank, chemical/pill tank, storing tank etc.
Mud tanks for solids control systems are divided into square tanks and Cone-shaped tanks according to the shape of the tank bottom. The body of the tank is made by welding the steel plate and section, using the smooth cone-shape structure or the corrugated structure.
A drilling rig normally has two tanks. One tank is sectioned off into compartments that may include a settling tank, or sand trap, to allow sand and other solids in the drilling fluid to precipitate before flowing into the next compartment. Other compartments sometimes have agitators used to stir the fluid.
Tanks for oil drilling mud system
Generally speaking, tanks for oil drilling mud system always larger than others because of it’s larger treating capacity and different of request . It will including shaker tank, desanser or desilter tank , active tank , mixing tank . Tank size depending on mud requirement , layout request and habit .
Aipu proprietary tanks are designed to assist with proper solids control. And since each mud tank can be constructed in a variety of sizes and styles based on your application requirements, it’s easy to customize our equipment to your project needs. If you need it, please contact us freely.
