Desanding plants produced by DC Solid control

Desanding plants are employed to remove soil particles in drilling mud and support slurry used in foundation engineering. They can be either water-bentonite, water- polymere, or water-cement and bentonite suspensions. Desanding plants have further applications in gravel pits, in the mining industry and in microtunneling projects.



The regeneration or cleaning capacity of a desanding plant is determined by the plant′s intake capacity of contaminated suspension. It is defined in m3/h. The regeneration efficiency or the “significant cut-off point” d50 indicates the smallest particle size of which at least 50% can be removed from a suspension. It is
expressed in 1/1000 mm or micron.



The main components of all desanding plants are:

Coarse screen for intercepting stones larger than 5 mm.
Storage tank of the coarse screen cyclone with cyclone feeder pump for removing fine particles from the suspension.
Dewatering screens for abstracting further water from the solids dis-charged by the cyclone.

DC Trailer Type HDD Mud System

Trailer drilling mud recycling systems are usually used in Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) & Workover drilling. HDD is a technology that is used in public infrastructure construction, such as laying pipeline across rives, railway, building. etc. The purpose is not to destroy the earth surface existing structure.  DC trailer type drilling mud solids control system is comply with the quick-move usage of truck mounted drilling rig, equipped with shale shaker, degasser, mud cleaner, centrifuge, etc. on the system, which can be used in oil & gas drilling, CBM exploration, horizontal directional drilling, etc. and 1000~5000 meters workover drilling.
DC Trailer Type Mud System
DC trailer type  drilling fluids purification system takes half-trailer structure. and the trailer which has the double function of delivery base & operation base, can move the entire mud tanks & solids control units that all mounted on the trailer base. There equips roll-over barriers & work way, and with liquid level monitor, which can achieve automatic operation & quick moving.
Features of DC trailer type drilling fluids recycling system:
1. With hydraulic lift system, easy to install & drag.
2. With airmatic floating axle, avoid to press the tire in a long period.
3. Equip high G shale shaker, effectively remove the solids in the drilling fluids, and install & replace quick wear part easily.
4. Mounted with high efficient degasser, can efficiently remove the harmful gas in the mud.
5. the discharge port of desander & desilter that mounted on the system is adjustable, and can treat different type of drilling fluids with different viscosity & solids contents.
6. High efficient centrifuge can remove the small size harmful solids in the mud.
7. Centrifugal sand pump perform well with good seal.
8. Mud agitators that mounted on the mud tank locates properly without bland areas for agitating.

HDD mud system

HDD means horizontal directional drilling or Directional boring, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area.
HDD mud system
Drilling fluids have several important functions. They cool and lubricate the drill bit, stem and other down hole tools. The fluid also assists in sealing the sides of the bore, therefore stabilizing the borehole. Finally, drilling fluids are designed to carry the cuttings out of the hole.

The most widely used drilling fluids for HDD applications are bentonite, even if they are not so expensive compared with oilfield drilling fluids, but it is still a pollution for the environment, especially usually they dig a mud pit for HDD and pump the drilling fluids from the mud pit to shale shaker. After the directional boring, how to treat the used drilling mud become a problem.

DC solids control can provide the complete solution for HDD fluids cleaning, recycling and waste treatment. Firstly, during drilling, you should use an efficient HDD mud recycling system to clean and recycle the drilling fluids as much as you can. After drilling, the used mud together with the separated cuttings(separated from the 1st phase) will be collected by a storage tank, and enter into another waste management process. For the water based drilling fluids, we recommend decanter centrifuge DCLW350 centrifuge with a mud tank.After the primary process, the fluids with fine soils will be sent to water-treatment-plant for further cleaning, the solids will be transport by truck for cementing plant or construction application.

What equipment used in Horizontal Directional Drilling ?

Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area.

The equipment used in a horizontal directional drilling depends on the outer diameter of the pipe, length of the run, ground conditions and the surroundings above ground. For the large bores, directional drills equipped with as much as 1 320 000 lb (or more) of thrust/pullback (Vermeer D1320x900)is used in conjunction with a mud reclaimer, excavator, and multiple pumps and hoses to supply the drilling fluid to the drillstem. Directional drilling stem is made from heat-treated high-carbon steel for strength and ships in diameters of 8 – 15 cm. Drill stem sections are manufactured in 3.0 or 4.6 and also 9.1 meter lengths and have male threading on one end, and female on the other. It is common for a directional drill to carry as much as 305 m of rod on board. Drilling heads come in multiple designs and depends on the rock or soil being penetrated. The drilling head has multiple water ports to allow removal of material. A talon bit involves the carbide-tipped cutters. These allow for steering and cutting the material. Another head is a mud-motor that is used in rocky landscapes.

Furthermore, supporting equipment is needed to assist directional-drilling or HDD to work smoothly, such as drilling mud recycling system, shale shaker, mud cleaner, centrifugal pump, mud tanks, etc.
