Simply speaking, mud cleaner is shale shaker, desander, desilter assy, it is also called 3 in 1. GNZJ703 & GNZJ853 is the best choice for large treating capacity, large screen area mud cleaner, most of our clients use GN made mud cleaner before GN decanter centrifuge, this action can improve the performance of GN decanting centrifuge.
Mud cleaner maintenance including
(1)Clean dust on shell regularly
(2)Before operating, must check the bolts to confirm whether there is loose or not. Otherwise, we must screw bolts tight before running shaker
(3)Inspect the cable, whether there is wear, hold down, crushing, etc.
(4)the vibration motor should be under good lubrication during operation:
Motors before fixed on shaker, the bearing is filled with SKF specific lubricate grease, the temperature range is -40 ~ 200℃
(1)Before every shut off, the shaker should run without any load for 5-10 minutes, at the same time, use clean water to flush screen clean
(2)Every time finish operation, the shaker frame and screen should be flushed by water. Pls replace new screen or repair the damaged screen once it is found damage, otherwise large cutting may dropped into the clean mud and influence the following process.

Mud cleaner is a combination of shale shaker, desander, desilter for oilfield drilling mud system, NOV Brandt also called it mud conditioner. There are many suppliers for mud cleaners, Derrick, MI-SWACO, Brandt, GN Solids Control, here we will make a comparison of the 4 model of mud cleaners. Take 1000gpm unit for example:
GN mud cleaner
1 Derrick Mud Cleaner Features:
A round desilter manifold and/or a desander manifold is mounted in a cone discharge collection pan installed over the vibrating screen.Underflow from the hydrocyclones is received by the collection pan, which may feed directly to discharge or onto the vibrating screens for additional processing.
Derrick’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 10” & 4”
2 MI-SWACO Mud Cleaner features:
Low profile through
Vertical installation method of desilter cone
MI-SWACO’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 12” and 4”
Patented pin-and-hole screen securing system
Brandt’s standard desander cone and desilter cone is 10” or 12” and 4”
Small footprint, compact design; desilter cone is installed vertical but inclined, GN standard desander cone and desilter cone is also 10 inch and 4 inch, which is same with Derrick’s.
GN mud cleane is convenient to ship it by containers, GNZJ703-2S12N(1000gpm) footprint is only 2403x1883x2195mm, but same treating capacity, Brandt Cobra 16/2 Mud Conditioner dimension is 2692 mm x 2032 mm x 2565 mm. For same treating capacity and function equivalent, GN mud cleaner is with the smallest size.
Simply speaking, mud cleaner is desander, desilter, shale shaker 3 in 1, sometimes people called it 3 in 1. For a four phase cleaning solids control system, mud cleaner can do the job for 2nd and 3rdphase cleaning of drilling fluids.
GN mud cleaner features:
1 standard design with various treating capacity, 500gpm, 1000gpm, 1500gpm
2 large shaker screen area to dry the solids and recycle more fluids
3 compact footprint, container shipping suitable
4 Easy maintenance, stainless steel valve on each hydrocyclone can make the replacement of cone easier, you do not need to stop whole machine.
MI-SWACO mud cleaner features:
Designed to handle the entire circulating volume to remove and dry solids while retaining premium base fluid. They are equally effective for both weighted and unweighted drilling-fluids.The hydrocyclones make the primary separation with underflow directed onto the shaker vibrating screen.

There are a lot of names given to the combination of hydrocyclone and shale shaker. In NOV, it is called mud conditioner; while Derrick, flow line cleaner; Mi swaco, mud cleaner; in China, GN Solids Control, also named it mud cleaner.
There are six mud conditioner types: King Cobra Mud Conditioner; Cobra Mud Conditioner; LCM-3D Mud Conditioner; Mini Cobra 2-Panel Mud Conditioner; Mini Cobra 3-Panel Mud Conditioner; King Cobra Venom Mud Conditioner. The differences is the shale shaker, and the number of cones.
There are 5 models in GN Solids Control: GNZJ83-3 GNPJ70-3 GNZJ63-3 GNZJ83-2 GNTJ60, two kinds of shaker GNZS Linear Motion Shale Shaker, GNPS Balanced elliptical shale shaker are available.
The National Oilwell Varco? Brandt? King Cobra Mud Conditioner utilizes a combination of hydrocyclones and a King Cobra shale shaker to separate solids from liquid. The combination of hydrocyclone cones utilized is dependent upon the specific application of duty. Cone combinations typically consist of a desander cones (10-inch or 12-inch) and desilter cones (4-inch) which are properly sized to handle over 125% of the flow rate.

Combo Cleaner Mud Combo Unit
The Combo Cleaner combines hydrocyclones and a Vibratory Screen to provide liquid/solids separation at a high flow rate. As a first stage, the mud is processed through the hydrocyclones, the cleaned fluids is carried out the Hydrocyclone overflow and the concentrated underflow (solids) are deposited on a vibratory screen deck. The screen deck imparts a rapid linear motion, producing an energy force that dewaters and conveys the solids to the discharge end of the screen. The screened fluids flows into a collection pan located below the screen deck. The cleaned liquid overflow from the hydrocyclones and the screened liquid may be blended together.Drilling Mud Cleaner Combo Unit – Hydrocyclones over a Linear Motion Shale Shaker Screening Deck.

Oil well drilling mud conditioner are manufactured in our China factory.We provide you with competitive price,best solutions for drilling mud condition.
The present invention relates to additives or conditioners for oil well drilling fluids, and more particularly to a boron-chrome lignosulfonate drilling fluid additive or mud conditioner.
Drilling mud conditioner
GN Solids Control design and manufacture Drilling Mud Conditioner utilizes a combination of hydro cyclones and a linear motion shale shaker to separate solids from liquid. The combination of hydrocyclone cones utilized is dependent upon the specific application of duty. Cone combinations typically consist of a few desander cones (10-inch or 12-inch) and several desilter cones (4-inch).
The most commonly used drilling fluids are aqueous dispersions of clay. The drilling fluid or “mud” is pumped down a hollow drill string, through the bit at the bottom, and up the annulus formed by the hole or casing and the drill string to thesurface. After reaching the surface, various operations are performed on the drilling fluid to remove the cuttings and formation material thereform. The drilling fluid is then treated with additives to obtain a desired set of rheological properties,and is then pumped back into the well in a continuous circulating process.
A satisfactory drilling fluid must have various desired functions, such as gelling during temporary work stoppage and other functions well known in the art, which contribute to the success of the well drilling operation. In order to accomplishthese various functions, it has been found necessary to incorporate certain additives in the drilling fluid. Modified lignosulfonates derived from spent sulfite liquor obtained from the pulping of woods have proven to be effective additives forobtaining the desired properties in drilling fluids.
These cones are mounted above the screen deck of the linear motion shale shaker. The mud is fed first through the hydrocyclones, where it subsequently cascades down over the shale shaker. The remaining solids, including barite, are returned to the active drilling mud system.
The screens used on the shale shaker determine the cut point for the mud conditioner unit. When weighted mud are used, shaker screens are selected in a manner that ensures that the majority of the weight material is returned to the mud system. Typically, API 170 screens (>82.5 to 98.0 microns) are utilized to reduce the amount of weight material discarded by the screens.
Drilling mud conditioner are widely used in petroleum oil and gas exploration industry, no-dig engineering, geotechnical engineering, mine, metallurgy, coal, hydropower and many other industries.GN drilling mud conditioning equipment can be used in both onshore and offshore oilfield project.HDD Horinzontal directional drilling mud system
