How To Choose a Mud Cleaner

  1. Mud flow: Mud cleaner mud flow is decided by desander & desilter size and qty. The desander cone normally choose 10 inch size and desilter cone choose 4 inch size. Once cone size is fixed, the mud flow will be fixed depending on cone qty.
  2. Bottom shaker: The bottom shaker will work to dry solids out of desander & desilter cone nozzle. The larger shaker deck will help for dry product and smaller shaker deck will save cost.
  3. Electrical standard: Different area may require different standard like IECEX, ATEX, UL, DGMS, etc. Before order any equipment, please confirm electrical standard.
  4. Customized design: Cone size and qty can be customized design to reach different mud flow and performance.
