Mud plant is very important application in solids control industry for oil and gas drilling industry. It is used to further treat and to storage the drilling mud back from the solids control system of rig site and get the drilling mud to be ready for next time use.

What equipment is used for a mud plant?

Normally, the mud plants’ main application is for storage the drilling mud, and adding some necessary chemicals into the mud. So the commonly used equipment is:

  1. Mud agitators. Where there’s mud, there’s agitator. Because if the mud is still for a while, the heavy components in the mud would settle down to the bottom and as long as they settle down, it is difficult or even impossible to re-stir them. So mud agitator is a continuously working equipment in a mud plant. GNJBQ series mud agitators covers all necessary models for oil and gas use mud agitators, it is compact in structure and with a powerful strength. Based on your tank depth, GN could recommend you with suitable model of mud agitator.
  2. Mud guns. Normally, the mud gun and mud agitator are used in pairs, like besides each mud agitator, there’s a mud gun. As the mud agitator is working in the middle of the tank, the mud gun is used to stir the mud in the tank corner. GN mud gun is suitable for high pressure up to 6.4 Mpa, and there are fixed nozzle models and rotary nozzle models for option. In addition to the main application as stirring the drilling mud at tank corner, the mud gun could also be used for transporting the mud from one tank to another.
  3. Jet mixing system. It is combined by a jet mixing hopper and a feeding pump for the hopper. For making the old mud to be suitable for future use, we need to add some chemicals into the mud. GNSLS series hoppers are made of stainless steel, with same or even better material than USA brands and with a longer service life. GNSB series centrifugal pumps are interchangeable with MISSION pump with spare parts. It could be used as feeding pump for hopper and desander or desilter’s feeding pump.
