Mud System


Including mud preparation equipment like Gravel Pumps, Agitators, and circulation equipment like mud pump, Shale Shaker, Degasser and other equipment. Customer can select different specification of equipment to make a system dealing with the slurry preparation, solid control and circulation of mud, according to different requirement of the drilling operation. All the equipment could fit both onshore and offshore drilling.

  • Mud Pump
    A mud pump is a large pump appiled to move heavy drilling fluid, known as mud, within a hole when drilling for oil. The pump circulates the mud by pushing it down into the hole and then moving it back up again. Mud pumps are reciprocating pumps, meaning that they use oscillating pistons or plungers to displace the fluid. A mud pump is a single acting pump, so the fluid will move in only one direction. A hole, or well, is drilled into the ground, and the mud is pushed by the mud pump down piping to the bottom of the hole. The pressure then forces the mud up the annulus, or the space that surrounds the piping.
  • Shale Shaker
    Shale shakers are a piece of industrial equipment applied to remove rock particles from drilling fluid. This drilling fluid, or mud, plays a significant role in the drilling process. It washes away rock cuttings as they are cut by the drill, and also helps to cool the drill bit to reduce the risk of overheating. The shale shaker is designed to remove these rock cuttings and other solid materials from the drilling mud so that it can be safely reused over and over again. Shale shaker often serves as part of a larger mud removal system, which helps to keep the drilling mud free of not only solids, but also unwanted gases and other contaminants.
  • Degasser
    A degasser is a kind of industrial equipment applied during oil and gas drilling motions. It acts as part of a mud system, and is designed to remove gaseous contaminants from drilling fluid. Combined with a solids-removal device like a shale shaker, the degasser can help to clean the drilling mud and allow it to be reused continuously during drilling operations. By removing bubbles of gas from this fluid, the degasser also helps to reduce the risk of explosions and other dangers on the drilling site.
  • Desander
    A desander is a significant part of the mining and drilling process. This simple container helps filter out grainy solids from drilling liquid, often in mud form, that is brought up from a drilling hole. Located close to the end of the entire purification process, but not the last step, desanding is famous for its simplicity and lack of moving parts. Its effectiveness has seen this technique adapted into many industries. The steps before a desander is used are numerous and differ relying on the industry that is utilizing the drilling fluid recovery. Generally, colorfully named tools such as gas busters, gumbo removal equipment, shale shakers, mud cleaners and vacuum degassers are all used to break down the fluid to the stage where the desander can remove small grains. After the desander is utilized, many industries also use a desilter to further purify the liquid.
  • Desilter
    Desilter plays a major part in the drilling liquid solid control system. A hydrocyclone much like a desander except that its design incorporates a greater number of smaller cones. As with the desander, its purpose is to remove unwanted solids from the mud system. The smaller cones allow the desilter to efficiently remove smaller diameter drill solids than a desander does. For that reason, the desilter is located downstream from the desander in the surface mud system.
  • Centrifuge
    Centrifuge is a piece of solids-removal machinery that removes fine and ultrafine solids. It contains a conical drum that rotates at 2000 to 4000 rpm. Drilling fluid is fed into one end and the separated solids are moved up the bowl by a rotating scroll to exit at the other end. Centrifuges generally have limited processing capacity (50 to 250 gpm) however are efficient for processing weighted drilling fluids and can remove finer solids than a hydrocyclone or shaker screens. They can also be applied for water clarification or for processing oily cuttings.
  • Mud Tank
    A mud tank is a big storage container applied to hold reserves of drilling fluid, also known as drilling mud, for a drill rig. Drilling fluid is applied to decrease friction on drill components to allow them to work harder and faster with less risk of breaking down. We manufacture and refurbish mud tanks of various shapes and sizes for industrial use, and customer who specialize in cleaning tanks and other drilling equipment are also available. The cost for tanks and associated services varies widely, especially when custom designs are involved.
  • Gravel Pumps
    The gravel pump is robust state of the art slurry pumps that feature oil or grease lubrication bearing assemblies and complete interchangeable with other major brands. The gravel pump can be supplied in either a packed gland version using expeller technology, or mechanical seal system specifically designed for heavy duty slurry applications. It suitable in the big pellet strong abrasion silt stream handling, it suitable in the dredger, picks the gr It's suitable in the big pellet strong abrasion silt stream handling, it's suitable in the dredger, picks the granulated substance scours. Granulated substance, scours. It is suitable for pontoon, sand barge, floating for sand suction.
  • Mud Agitator
    Mud agitator is a portion of the drilling liquid purification system. It is designed to mix the mud and prevent the cuttings and sand from depositing to the bottom of the mud tank, thus ensuring them to get through the purification system smoothly. The main functions of mud agitator is to mix the drilling liquid evenly and make the cuts suspend in the drilling liquid. The reducer is driven by Archimedes column worm and worm gear. Its characteristics: By using single stage worm and worm gear reducer, the mud agitator presents small size, light weight, stable drive, low noise, high transmit power and high agitating capacity.
  • Shearing Pump
    Shearing Pump combines the advantage of both a centrifugal pump and an inline high shear mixer. It achieves the balance of pumping efficiency and shearing energy. With the special impeller and slotted stator and its highly sanitary design, our Shearing Pump is widely used to deliver fluid materials in dairy, food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Shear Pump can mix effectively and hydrate completely the material added in the drilling fluid, save the mud material, reduce the time of configuration, and provide the high performance mud for the well drilling.
