Description

Maximized solids control

Mud tank systems are a critical component of any drilling operation for maximizing solids control efficiency and effectiveness.

The Ideal Mud Tank System is a two-tank unit with a total active (operating) capacity of 1,318 bbl (total/nominal capacity of 1,500 bbl).

The system comes complete with all the essential solids control equipment necessary for successful operations. Additionally, optional solids control configurations are available to suit the needs of specific applications.

Features/Benefits

  • Removable shaker skids
    • Allow for quick and easy mobilization and demobilization
  • Processing equipment mounted on separate, removable skid
  • Vertical, direct-driven centrifugal pumps
    • Minimizes the footprint required by the pumps
  • Centrifugal pumps and control manifold installed on a pump porch
    • Provides easy access for controlling processes
  • Each centrifugal pump is in close proximity to a specific piece of equipment
    • Allows for shorter piping runs with less friction
    • Maximizes horsepower and hydraulic efficiency
  • Caustic barrel telescopes remain on tank during transportation
    • Allows for quick and easy mobilization and demobilization; provides a safe way to add caustic to the mud system
  • With its total active (operating) capacity of 1,318 bbl (total/nominal capacity of 1,500 bbl), the Ideal Mud Tank System provides a volume usually achieved with a three-tank system while reducing transportation costs
  • Vortex breakers at each suction
    • Prevents cavitation of centrifugal pumps
  • Minimal piping inside tanks
    • Allows for proper agitation, thus improving homogenization of the mud
  • Integrated cement and active bypass
    • Prevents equipment contamination
  • Sloped sand trap with integrated mud gun
    • Facilitates quick, easy, and thorough cleaning
  • Complete system can be transported with only four trucks
    • Permits quick rig-up and reduces transportation costs
  • 30-in. distance between shakers (competition’s standard is 24 in.)
    • Provides easy access to shakers for maintenance, screen changes, etc.
  • Electrical cable trays
    • Eliminates cable sag
  • Collapsible handrails
  • Mud level sensors (optional)
    • Provides well control; reduces contamination of the drill site
  • Hammerseal piping connections
    • Guarantees proper alignment and positive sealing
  • Fold-down crossover walks between tanks
    • Eliminates the need for a crane lift
  • Easy-access tank compartments
    • Provides quick and easy access to tank compartments for maintenance, inspections, etc.
