Desilter is solids control equipment similar as Desander. Configured with a set of desilter cones to separate 15~46 micron particles from drilling mud.

Desilter Equipment In Solids Control System

A desilter is the 4th phase purification equipment in the mud system. It holds similar principle and operational way as desander. However, the separation point will be finer. Depends on clients requirement, it can be set to different numbers hydrocyclone. Desilter cones are typically 4”, but some client will request 3”, 5” as well. So it is rather flexible on capacity configuration. Desilter can be fit with the bottom shaker or not. Or it can be combined with shaker and desander together to be the mud cleaner. We call desilter as the 3rd phase solids control equipment.

Features Of AIPU Desilter

  • 100% Polyurethane(PU) Material for desilter cones with longer using life.
  • Clamp type for easy maintenance.
  • Compact design with small footprint.
  • Flexible options for 1 or 2, or 3 for different capacities.
  • Different size of downstream shale shaker for option.
  • Flexible fast connection is available for user friendly assembly.
  • Tangentially blended into the cone entry as a narrow rectangle to minimise turbulence in the upper section of the cone, allowing the solids to move quickly to the cone wall.
