Mud Recycling

To work in conjunction with the our new Prime Drilling PD 250/90 RP maxi drilling rigs we have also purchased a comprehensive mud processing and recycling facility.

The high performance Derrick recycling unit has been designed to process 3000 litres of high viscosity drilling fluid per minute. The system comprises two Derrick Equipment FLC-504 shale shakers for primary screening and a Derrick FLC-504 mud cleaner, complete with 3 x 10 inch de-sander cones and 20 x 4 inch de-silter cones, for de-sanding and de-silting.

The Derrick 504 units are mounted on a 24 foot (8 metre) base tank which incorporates integrated centrifugal pumps to feed the de-sander and de-silter cones.

Screening is carried out using the revolutionary pyramid screening system ensuring consistent cleaning down to approximately 20μm (20 microns).

The mud mixing system comprises an 18 cubic metre mixing tank incorporating integrated centrifugal pumps for mixing through a 6 inch mud hopper, plus two 30 cubic metre holding tanks complete with agitators.

Clear Solutions International Ltd manufactured the equipment under license to leading solids separation company Derrick Equipment who are based in Buffalo, New York, USA. For more information about our mud recycling facilities, please contact us.
