Why Desander Desilter (Mud Cleaners) Important In Solids Control

Modern, linear motion shale shakers are the most significant advance in solids removal technology. They permit the use of much finer screens than had been used in the past. By reducing the quantity of material to be removed by … Read the rest

Hydrocyclone (Mud Cleaner, desander, desilter)Troubleshooting

Hydrocyclone is core part of mud cleaner (desilter, desander). Hydrocyclones are a cost-effective method of removing many of the fine solids missed by the shaker in unweighted muds.

Hydrocyclones separate solids from fluid by using centrifugal … Read the rest


The most familiar combination separator is the Mud Cleaner or Mud Conditioner (Figure 1). In many cases, combinations of vibratory screening and settling/centrifugal force are used together to provide an effective separation.
