Dredging Slurry Separation Solution

River dredging process system is generally adopts a cutter suction dredger to absorb the muddy water mixture at the bottom of river, and then transport it along the pipeline to a sludge drying treatment field. After machine sorts the garbage mixed in mud, the mud is passed into the concentration tank in the field, and the mud water separation is carried out through the mud treatment system. Finally, water reaches the standard discharge, and the wet sludge is sent to sludge dewatering equipment to dehydrate and becomes solidified mud cake for reusing.

Dredging Slurry Separation Solution mainly used for the separation of sludge from rivers. KOSUN Dredging Slurry Separation Solution is consist of shale shaker, desander, desilter or decanter centrifuge for 3 to 6 stage separation depending on the needs.

KOSUN Dredging Slurry Separation Solution is consisting of 3 parts. The first one is the dredging boat and first stage separation pool for large size of the trash. The dredging boat is always moving on the surface of the lake or river, and the suction unit would go down deep to the bottom of the lake or river and then suck sludge then transfer to the ground by a hose which is always float on the water surface. On the ground, there will be a pool which is divided into several parts by different mesh size of wire screen. The sludge flow coming out from the hose will get into the pool; the large size of the trash in the sludge would be blocked by these several wire screens, while the slurry will flow away for next process.

The second part of the Dredging Slurry Separation Solution is the recycling system which is including several equipment that is used especially for the solids and liquid separation. The slurry will be fed into a scalping shaker, here the solids which is large than 1/8 inch would be separated out, and the slurry would then be pump transferred to the desander for much fine solids removing. After treated by the desander, almost all the solids with size of 50 microns would be removed out.

The third part of the Dredging Slurry Separation Solution is the ultra-fine solids removing equipment. Some contractors like to use the filter press as the final solids removing units, the solids separated are really dry and shaped like cake. While another option is to use the decanter centrifuge that could be used to remove the ultra-fine solids with size down to 2 microns. After treated by the filter press or the centrifuge, the water is already clean that could be flow back to the lake or river.

Working principle of cyclone desander

Origin of cyclone desander:

Sand removal equipment is often eroded, resulting in solid particle deposition and pipe blockage. In order to solve this problem, a solid-phase/liquid-phase swirling desander device has been developed for separating and eliminating solid particles in well fluids. Compared with the traditional filter desander, kexun swirl desander has the characteristics of compact structure and high working efficiency.

Working principle of cyclone desander:

The basic principle of the cyclone desander is to use centrifugal force to introduce the fluid tangential direction into the conical shell of the cyclone desander. The gravity action pushes the solid particles to the surface of the cone and runs down to the outlet of the separator. The secondary liquid swirl generated in the separation shell causes the liquid to migrate upward and discharge from the overflow port through the swirl detector. The smaller the diameter of the desander cyclone is, the greater the separation effect will be.

Features of KOSUN cyclone desander:

  1. Simple structure, easy operation, safe and reliable use, almost no maintenance;
  2. Compared with the expanded pipe, buffer box and other sand removal equipment, it has the advantages of small volume, large processing capacity and saving field space;
  3. Sand can be removed from the water during the continuous water supply;
  4. It avoids the phenomenon of secondary pollution of water quality in other ways of sand removal and has high efficiency of sand removal.

It is recognized at home and abroad that mud solid control equipment is one of the important symbols of scientific drilling.

It is recognized at home and abroad that mud solid control equipment is one of the important symbols of scientific drilling. Through the continuous improvement and improvement of drilling fluid solid-phase control equipment in recent 10 years, it has a significant effect on improving drilling technology, reducing the maintenance workload of circulation system, ensuring the performance of drilling fluid, reducing downhole accidents, increasing drilling speed and reducing cost.

Prior to the 1970s, the petroleum drilling industry used extremely crude drilling fluid shale shaker, with a separation size of only 400 microns and solid particles re-entering the mud circulation system.Later, ultra-fine vibrating screen, cyclone desander, mud desander, drilling fluid centrifuge, vacuum degasser, mud mixer, slurry distribution device, mud tank and electrical operation cabinet, with the total weight of more than ton, the total power consumption has been close to 300KW.Solid content can be controlled to a minimum of less than 5%, and the low-density properties of the drilling fluid can be adjusted as needed.

There is no doubt that these advances have brought about profound changes in the oil drilling industry. But at the same time also greatly increased the well team site repair, maintenance, use of the workload and consumption.Therefore, on the basis of constantly reducing the performance of the mud solid control system, it has become a very concerned issue for experts of mud solid control equipment at home and abroad to simplify the equipment, reduce energy consumption and improve reliability.

Advantages of drilling mud system

Operating principle of drilling mud non-landing system: In the process of oil and gas field drilling, the drilling mud and cuttings are treated continuously while drilling through specific equipment and technology, and the treated mud is recycled repeatedly, and the cuttings and harmful substances are treated, so as to protect the soil at the drilling site from being polluted. The treatment process is divided into: first, solid-liquid separation and waste residue recovery unit; Second, the waste drying unit.
Advantages of drilling mud system: The use of the non-landing mud system eliminates the direct excavation of the circulation pool, reduces land use, reduces related costs, and reduces the workload of the well team.Once the system is put into use, it can not only realize the continuous treatment of drilling mud and solid waste, but also recycle the two, which is both environmentally friendly and energy-saving.Mud pollution to the environment will be further controlled, drilling operations will be green.At the same time, the mud system can directly obtain good social and economic benefits.
1. The recycling and clean production of solid waste meet the requirements of circular economy and environmental protection, effectively reduce the environmental risk caused by waste drilling fluid, and help to protect the ecological environment; Ii. The “smaller” mud and sewage pool reduces the occupied area of the land and saves a certain amount of land collection fee for the oil field company; 3. Compared with the curing treatment cost of waste mud mainly used before, the use of the non-landing mud system has the characteristics of low cost and good effect. Cuttings separated by this technology can be discharged to the standard. As paving material, crop cultivation soil, etc. The water can be recycled to achieve the purpose of waste utilization, energy conservation and emission reduction.
