Mud desander is the second phase drilling mud process equipment in a whole solids control drilling mud process system. AIPU Solids Control is a professional manufacturer for mud desander with different specification and configurations. The desander can be a 3 in 1 with shale shaker, desander cyclone and desilter cyclone. Or it can be a 2 in 1 with shale shake rand desander cyclone. The easiest configuration is desander cyclone with neccessery pipeline and frame to make it lowest cost and minimum footprint.
Mud Desander Options
1. 3 in 1 option: shale shaker, desander cyclone and desilter cyclone make the whole equipment to be a 3 in 1. Desander cyclone works to separate solids 47-76 micron solids and desilter cyclone works to separate solids 15-25 micron solids. The separated solids will drop onto shale shaker screen which set on bottom to dry solids product by recycle drilling fluids back into mud tank. The 3 in 1 option is an popular option to minim footprint and maximum it’s performance result.
2. 2 in 1 option: shale shaker with desander cyclone make a whole 2 in 1 equipment only to separate solids 47-76 micron solids out and bottom shaker to dry solids discharge to minimum drilling fluids lost. This option will maximum it’s performance application by a big shale shaker but maximum it’s footprint too. Some clients will choose a mini shaker to make this option cost effective.
3. Desander cyclone only to minimum it’s cost, the solids separated from desander cyclone will be discharged directly by a collection hopper which will make more drilling fluids lost.
4. It’s hart to say which option is better only on specification, it will be depends on drilling condition, drilling mud requirement, budget requirement, etc. The most suitable option is the best option for clients.
