Desander, desilter and mud cleaner is the most common type hydraucyclone separator machine used in mud cleaning system, like system for oil and gas drilling, water well drilling, Geothermal drilling, Coal Bed Methane drilling, Horizontal Directional drilling and so on.
Hydraucyclone separator desander desilter and mud cleaner is used after shale shaker, and then dessander, desilter is used after desilter. Per the jobsite condition and the mud drilling rig request on mud, only desander or destiler separator can be used, or none of them be used.
There are different type of hydraucyclone separator. They have different features, users can choose the suitable model.
Design 1: Only Desander or desilter hydraucyclone assembly, without underflow shale shaker.
Option models for desander: GNWSE-2S / GNWSE-3S
Option models for desilter: GNWSE-12N / GNWSE-16N
Strong point: The simple type desander and desilter is with side-discharge deisng. It is with small footprint. And price lower.
Weak point: Hydraucyclone is not D100 separator. If there is no shale shaker separator under the hydraucyclone parts, performance will not be very good. Some big size solids may flows into the tank mud system.
Conclusion: If there are limited space on tank top and users want to save cost. desander and desilter without underflow shale shaker should be a good choice. It is normally used is underground construction system and compact mud system but not used for deep oil and gas drilling.
Design 2: Desander desilter with a small size under flow shale shaker.
Option models for desander: GNZJ752E-1S / GNZJ752E-2S
Option models for desilter: GNZJ752E-8N / GNZJ752E-12N
Strong point: With separate shale shaker under the hydraucyclone assembly, drilling fluids can be separated by screens before falling into tank system. And price is good.
Weak point: The small size shale shaker cannot get very good separation result, and big capacity not available.
Conclusion: It is normally used in compact mud system for HDD, CBM etc… And some workover rig mud system.
Design 3: Desander desilter with a big size under flow shale shaker. Both desander and desilter hydraucyclones can be mounted in the same shale shaker. Compact design and best separation. The price the most high among the 3 designs and performance best. When move the hydraucyclone assembly . It can be used as a separate solids control shale shaker.
Above is the introduction of the models, users can choose the suitable design per its detailed condition.
