5 inch polyurethane hydrocyclone


Hydrocyclone is a general term used to describe a device where liquid swirls inside of a cone. The centrifugal force of the swirling liquid moves the solids to the outside wall. In drilling operations, hydrocyclones use these centrifugal forces to separate solids in the 15- to 80-micron range from the drilling fluid. This solids-laden fluid is […]

Four desanders

Aipu Desander For Mud Control

Aipu Solids Control Desanders designed for continuous removal of sands and abrasive cuttings from rotary drilling fluids. The desander can help limit repair and replacement or parts damaged by abrasive-laden drilling fluids and minimizes sand-caused prbolems while it creases effective drilling rate and reduces rig downtime. The Aipu Solids Control Desander can be efficiently designed […]

vertical mud agitators

Aipu Mud Agitator

Aipu mud agitators, available in eight models (4 horizontal style and vertical style each) from 5.5 through 15 Kw (7.5  ~20 horsepower), are quite, smooth and vibration-free. The simplicity and strength of their single-reduction worm gear drive provide long reliable service. Mud agitator is one accessory of the solids control equipment, fixed in mud tank […]

solids control equipment (i.e. the consumables required for solids control equipment and any special equipment the rig contractor does not normally provide.


Basic Working Principle Of Solid Control Equipment

There is solids-control equipment that is used to remove solid contaminants and gas entrapped in mud. A typical solids-removal system is shown in Figure 1, which depicts a layout for solids control equipment for a weighed mud system. Solids can be removed from mud in four stages: Screen separation – shale shakers, scalper screens and […]

Gala shaker screen


The more specific term screening is used instead of the more general size separation to avoid confusion. As is apparent in other chapters, the size of an object affects its behavior in other unit operations. For example, air classification separates by the aerodynamic behavior of the object. Size separation is one of the most important […]

Centrifugal Pump Troubleshooting Guideline

Centrifugal pumps are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery – (wikipedia). It’s a very important device for solids control process. Centrifugal pump is the ideal equipment to provide impetus for shale shaker, desander, desilter and jet mud mixer. Aipu solids control  offers a complete line of centrifugal pumps to accommodate a full variety of drilling applications. Sizes range from 3 x […]

Waste Mud Treatment System For Drilling Rig Offshore

Waste Mud Treatment System makes possible to get rid of discharge of drilling waste. Performance of Waste Mud Treatment System was confirmed through the tests sea trials. It was confirmed that treatment capacity of drill drain and waist mud becomes approximately as planed, and there are same items to need improvement. On the other hand, about […]

Shaker Screen analysis Procedure For Determining Particle-Size Distribution of Drilling Mud

The series of shaker screens to use in the analysis was chosen after testing many mud samples. It assures that plugging will not occur. The procedure developed for ascertaining the amount of each particle size down to 44 microns, using shale shaker screens, is outline in the below. Take a representative 500-ml sample of mud. […]
