Mud Tanks for Drilling Rig
The Mud tanks system consists of equipment on an open-top container made of steel plate that contributes to the storage, mixing, circulation and purification of drilling fluid on a rig.


Overview of Mud Tanks

Mud Tanks can be divided into vertical mud tank and horizontal mud tank. Sino Mechanical is a manufacturer of mud tanks, which can design and produce drilling mud tanks of various specifications. Our mud Tanks include solid control system mud tank, skid-mounted vehicle mud tank, buried tank, etc. The mud tanks we produce are often used to install solid control equipment, store mud, configure mud, etc., to meet the requirements of drilling solid control systems, mud stations, and solid-liquid separation systems. Mud tanks can be divided into metering tanks, supply tanks, cooling tanks, low-temperature drilling mud tanks, trailer-mounted vehicle-mounted mud tanks, etc. according to their uses.

The supporting equipment on the mud tank generally includes drilling fluid shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, sand and desilter integrated machine, liquid-gas separator, agitator, sand pump, shear pump, centrifuge , electronic ignition device, mixing funnel, jet mixing device, mud gun, etc. 

Slurry tanks often use corrugated board to make the side walls stronger. The steel is sandblasted first, and the paint we use is the gold epoxy zinc-rich paint coating of the Kansai brand in Japan. The thickness of the first layer is 75μ, and the epoxy medium is twice. The thickness is 250μ, and the polyurethane topcoat is twice. And the thickness of the outside of the tank is 70 μ. Spray 2 coats inside the can as above. The mud tank is usually installed with an ISO standard interface for easy lifting from the tank roof. Sino Mechanical can design and manufacture all mud tanks of the mud circulation system, including supply tanks, mud storage tanks, mixing tanks, circulation tanks, etc. 

Features of Mud Tanks

1. The surface of mud tank and corridors are made of non-slip steel plates and non-slip strip mesh panels. And the tank surface railings are made of square steel pipes, which are barrier-free and fold able structures.

2. The tank surface of the mud tank circulation system is equipped with clean water pipelines to clean the tank surface and equipment. The tank surface mesh plate is treated with zinc dipping.

3. The tank ladder adopts channel steel as the main body and uses non-slip strip mesh as the pedal. The double side guardrails are equipped with safety hooks.

4. Oil drilling mud tanks are equipped with standard sand-proof and rain-proof shelters. And the heating insulation pipelines are installed inside the tanks.

5. A reasonable supporting scheme can be designed according to customer requirements.

6. The tank body is welded with steel plates and profiles. And the weld seam can be inspected for flaw detection and tank pressure test.

7. The mud tank is equipped with manholes, ladders, guardrails, etc., which are convenient for the staff to operate.

8. The tank spray paint adopts heavy marine anti-corrosion paint with high anti-corrosion and high wear resistance.

9. The mud tank adopts electrical centralized control, and its equipped manifolds are all built-in manifolds, which are convenient for installation, disassembly and transportation. In polar low temperature regions, the tank is equipped with heating system and insulation system.

10. The layout of solids control equipment is reasonable, reaching the five-stage purification standard (coarse screening, degassing, desanding, desilting, centrifugation), which further optimizes the mud performance.

11. The surface of the tank is made of galvanized steel grating, which has the characteristics of beauty, lightness and corrosion resistance.

12. The tank body is connected with a pneumatic union glass steel pipe, which has the advantages of convenient installation, beautiful appearance and reliable sealing.

13. Large tank capacity.

14. The water supply system realizes automatic control, and each tank or compartment can meet the requirement of uniform water supply at the same time.

15. Anti-corrosion. The surface strength of the tank is enhanced by using advanced technology and materials such as rust removal by wind and sand, spraying marine special paint, and ensuring the appearance and durability of the tank. 

Applications of Mud Tanks 

Through the recovery of drilling fluid mud tanks, the drilling fluid can be greatly purified. The horizontal traversing speed can be increased. The wear of mud pumps, drill pipes, and drill bits can be reduced. The mud materials can be saved, and drilling costs can be reduced. The environment can be protected. Mud tanks can bring considerable economic benefits to users benefit.
