Anderson said with conventional mud cleaning systems, drilling fluid initially passes through the linear motion shale shaker capable of handling 100 percent of the mud pump, typically removing coarse-sized solid particles greater than 100 microns.
These devices can remove particles with a size of 30 microns and are composed of three parts: desilter, desander, and shale shaker.
The deal is valid for capital equipment, such as shale shakers, mud cleaners, centrifuges, degassers, flow dividers, and for operational equipment such as shale shaker screens and spare parts.
Then, it is conditioned by passing through a mud-gas separator, over a shale shaker, then through a sand trap tank.
