Introduction of mud gun in mud tank system

Mud gun is widely used in mud tank system. It is normally mounted at tank corner. Its function is to agitating drilling mud, and avoid the solids phase in drilling mud from settling down, and keep an equal weight of the mud. Mud gun can also be used to transfer mud from tank to tank or from compartment to compartment.

There are high pressure mud gun and low pressure mud gun used for mud systems. During China brand mud gun, the normal model is 3.2Mpa or 6.4Mpa. The high pressure or lower pressure of mud gun depends on the power source of the mud gun. High pressure mud gun is feeding by mud pump. Its feeding line connected with mud pump flow line. Lower pressure mud mud gun feeding for centrifugal pump. The quantity of mud gun in mud tank system depends on the tank design and tank dimension.  

Applications of Mud gun in mud tank system

There are 2 inch and 3 inch mud mud gun for mud tank system. Both model have fixed design and manual adjustment design for option.

Drilling mud agitator and mud gun in mud tanks

Mud gun is usually used together with drilling mud agitator. Mud agitator is mounted in the middle of the tank compartment. The corners agitator cannot reachable. Mud gun will be used together with mud gun to keep the tank corner mud moveable. GN design mud gun is equipped with 3 nozzles, each nozzle with 120°to each other.  

500bbls tanks is a common size mud tank for oil and gas drilling rigs. I can be used for mud mixing or mud storage. For HDD or CBM drilling, they normally do not use such big size mud tank.

Below is the parameters of GN design 500bbl mud storage tank, it is rectangular Mud Tank built as per API specification Schedule 40:

The function and principle of Oil water filter

Oil water filter, it is mainly used to treat the contaminated oil, such as cooling system oil in drilling waste vertical cuttings dryer. Its function is filtration, purification, recovery or enhance the attributes of oil itself. The treatment process is including oil cleanliness, moisture content, gas content, acid value, viscosity, flash point, the insulation strength, color and so on. Oil water filter can effectively remove impurities in oil to guarantee safe operation of the equipment.

Application scope of Oil water filter

Oil water filter is mainly used in mining industry, metallurgy, petroleum field (drilling mud cleaning system), railway, machinery, chemical, textile, cement, power, instrumentation and other industries. It has big effect on the purification and recovery of variety of industry waste lubrication oil. Oil water filter can extend extend the maintenance cycle and service life of equipment, and reduce the production cost.

Furthermore, oil water filter can effectively remove oil pollutants such as: water, water soluble acid, alkali and mechanical impurities, improve the kinematic viscosity, flash point of oil, emulsification. To make oil quickly returned to the desired properties, close to or reach the national standard of the corresponding new oil.

Oil water filter for liquid mud plant base oil tank

Oil base mud is a normal kind of drilling mud for deeper oil and gas drilling. Diesel oil is used as base oil. Oil water filter is used before based oil tank, after treatment, the oil will be transferred to base oil tank through oil pump.

Beside oil water filter, there are other equipment are necessary for liquid mud plant

1) Mud agitator: it is equipped in each tank compartment to enable the mud moveable all the time, to avoid it from settle down.

2) Mud mixing system: for continue mud prepare

3) Huge capacity mud tanks

4) Electrical control system and lighting system for the whole system

5) Rain shade to protect the whole system from strong sunshine or rain.
