The types and function of solids control

More and more drilling company and drilling contractor realized the importance of solids control. Drilling fluids solids control has become key issue in many industries. Solids control is important way to overcome optimizing well drilling.

Solids control type

There are so many solids control method, usually we’ll take following as main solution:

One is dilution, it uses clean water or other watery liquid to dilute drilling mud;

second is replacement, it uses clean water or standard new drilling mud with good property to take place of certain drilling mud including some solids then decrease general solids percentage. Above method are usually used together to get better result of solids control

The third one is mechanical way. It will be realized through shale shaker, desander, desilter, mud cleaner, decanting centrifuge, etc. machinery equipments. Take the advantage of screen filtration, and decanting separation principle. Then the solid will be separated out according to density and particle size, and we’ll decide to use and delete subject to actual demand. Finally we achieve the solids control aim.

Drilling fluid solids control system works well and requests little investment, each solids control equipment holding special superiority and separate related solid particle size.

Fourth one is chemical way. During this process, we use stable drilling fluid system to control drilling cutting. Will make cuttings stable together or concentration. It benefits mechanical separation or chemical settling. This is mutual addition mechanical solids separation.

Solids control function

  1. Remove harmful solid phase and keep the drilling operations going;
  2. Keep the drilling process safe and prevent some accidents;
  3. Reduce the energy consumption;
  4. Reduce the pollution and protect the environment.

Solids control system is constituted of

  1. Three-in-one mud cleaner, drilling fluids shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter;
  2. Drilling fluids decanter centrifuge;
  3. And the others, like, centrifugal pump, shear pump, mud agitator, mud gun, mud circulating tank and batching apparatus.

Aipu is a professional mechanical solids control manufacturer.In the future, we will continue to develop environmental protection solids control equipment special for drilling, enriching the types of solids control equipment in our country and promote the diversification of solid control equipment functions.
