It’s the right choice for you to choose DC Solid control

The nature of solid content mechanism in drilling fluids directly affects its properties and causes adverse impact on drilling performance. It has rapidly evolved and become a paramount issue over the years because of challenging drilling operations.

mud system

To control the impact of the drilled solids on drilling fluid properties, solid control system unit must be capable of removing the drilled solids before the re- circulation. Failure to establish good solid control management may end the operation strategy with dilution method. A rigorous analysis of drilled solid effects and its correlation with poor performance of solid control system significantly reflects on the overall rig performance in optimizing drilling operation.

Commonly the Solids control system includes five-phase purification equipments as shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter and centrifuge for the purification and circulation of the drilling fluid. This mud system is designed to guarantee the smooth performance of separation, circulation, injection and confection of the drilling fluid and to fit the space available and weight requirements of oilfields.

DC solid control system complies with ISO/CD14690 “Health, Safety, environmental protection and environmental management system of Petroleum industry”. The process and equipment comply with API 13C

Replacement of Mongoose PRO shale shaker design of DC Solid control

The M-I SWACO MONGOOSE PRO shale shaker combines balanced and progressive elliptical motion, enabling operators to switch motion “on the fly” as drilling conditions change. With a simple flip of a switch, the MONGOOSE PRO shale shaker shifts from the balanced elliptical to the progressive elliptical motion without the need to
suspend or shut down operations.

To meet the advanced technology of the shale shaker. DC Solid control absord the abroad advanced design and combine our unique technology to design a new shale shaker, we call it DCPT shale shaker which shale shaker also combines balanced and progressive elliptical motion realized by 2 motors.

Operators can change the type of motion required to either handle high volume or produce dryer cuttings, as drilling conditions dictate. With the DCPT shale shaker, NPT lost to changing out shakers to meet drilling conditions is no longer an issue.

The balanced elliptical motion manages high-volume solids. Effective for tophole sections with heavy, high-volume solids, the balanced elliptical motion provides 7.5 gn of force to quickly move high volumes of solids across the screens.

Progressive elliptical motion produces dryer cuttings. The gentler action of the progressive elliptical motion is effective when the cuttings volume is reduced, such as in lower sections, and operators want a longer drying time for the cuttings. The g-force is reduced to 6.5 gn to optimize drilling fluid recovery and produce dryer cuttings.

What should we know about the Decanter centrifuge

A decanter centrifuge separates solids from liquid phase(s) with high efficiency. In the centrifuge the gravitational acceleration is replaced by the much higher centrifugal acceleration (up to 4000 x g). By this high bowl speed the solids (higher density) are separated from liquids (lower density).

Decanter means that the liquid and the solid phase are separated from each other by centrifugal acceleration. The solids particles collect due to their higher density on the bowl wall and are transported with the scroll to the discharge openings. At the same time the cleared liquid flows along the scroll into the liquid discharge zone.

decanter centrifuge

The four main sections of a decanter centrifuges:

1) Inlet zone
The inlet zone accelerates the feed slurry up to the speed of the bowl. A properly engineered inlet zone keeps any degradation of the feed solids to a minimum as well as avoiding disturbance of the sediment in the bowl. A number of feed zone specifications are available for decanter centrifuges, each designed to ensure maximum performance in conjunction with a specific process.

2) Screw conveyor
The key to good decanter performance lies in the efficient, effective scrolling of the sedimented solids. The design of the screw conveyor is therefore crucial. You must have the expertise needed to match the demands involved in specific industrial processes with specific configurations of flight pitch, lead angle and differential speed, in order to secure the best possible results.

3) Solids Discharge Section
Depending on the application, the consistency of the separated solids can vary from a dry powder to a paste. The configuration of the discharge zone is therefore chosen to enable such “cakes” to exit as effectively as possible. Innovative designs enables erosion-prone components used in the solids discharge zone to be replaced on site at low cost and with a minimum of disturbance to production.

4) Liquid Discharge Section
In a two-phase decanter, the liquid level is regulated by dam plates. In a three-phase centrifuge when operating in a three-phase mode, each phase discharges over a set of dam plates into separate baffled compartments in the casing. In certain applications, a centripetal pump discharge that utilizes the pressure head developed by the rotating liquid phase is used to pump the liquid from the decanter.

Typical applications of 2-phase separation are waste water clearing, sludge dewatering, but also juice and wine production with decanter centrifuges.

Vertical cutting dryers function and High performance

Vertical cutting dryers are a high-speed vertical centrifuge that achieves maximum liquid/solid separation in large volumes. Vertical cutting dryers are one of the industry’s best performing and most dependable cutting dryers.

Function of vertical cutting dryer:

A vertical cuttings dryer can reduce liquid content to 5% with less maintenance costs. Vertical cutting dryers offer a waste management solution to effectively clean and dispose of drilling solids and maximize drilling fluid returns specific to operational needs.

Its high capacity processing provides substantial reduction to the oil-on-cuttings ratio to help meet regulations for waste disposal. Maximum separation of solids and liquids can be achieved. Increased separation means increased fluid recovery, lower cost of replacement fluid and minimal waste to be transported and disposed of going straight to your bottom line.

Versatility and high performance:

Drill cuttings are conveyed from the shakers to the VERTI-G cuttings dryer through a variety of site-engineered conveyance systems, including gravity feed, pneumatic transfer via CLEANCUT cuttings collection and transportation system, vacuum transfer and screw conveyors.

Vertical cutting dryers provides its operators an advantage for environmental and economic reasons. Vertical cuttings dryers are a necessity for industries where increased regulations on cuttings discharge are prevalent.
