4″ Desilter cyclone for mud cleaner

Desilter cyclone is installed on mud cleaner to separate fine solids particles like silt. 4 inch is a commonly used size. Normally cyclone will be installed on mud cleaner for third phase mud cleaning on the solids control system.

The mud cleaner is a shale shaker, desander, and desilter combination for the second phase and third phase mud cleaner after the shale shaker. The bottom shale is working to dry solids particles out of the desander and desilter nozzle and recycling fluids content into a solids control system.

  • Different sizes of nozzles for desilter body bottoms are installed depending on desilter performance. 30 degrees of solids jetting at the bottom is a good performance. If it’s jetting at 30+ degrees, adjust the nozzle size a bit bigger, if it’s jetting at 30- degrees, adjust the nozzle size a bit smaller.
  • All parts are made by PU material for wear resisting and extending their working life.
