These devices can remove particles with a size of 30 microns and are composed of three parts: desilter, desander, and shale shaker.
After that come the degasser, desander, and desilter. Finally, the mud returns to the active pits before it is pumped down the drill string again.
In addition, the Tango 600HD2 features the new Hyper-G six-panel linear motion shaker with increased G-force output and single-point leveling jack, Firestone single-piece vibration isolation system, independent centrifugal pump pockets for direct maintenance access and eight 4-inch desilter hydrocyclone manifold capable of cleaning fluid down to 25 microns.
The drilling fluid then passes through desander and/or desilter hydrocyclones for further removal of fine and silt-sized solid particles, ranging in size between 250 to 100 microns.
