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.

GNPJ&GNZJ mud cleaner is a normal model of our company,we can design customized cost-effective mud Cleaner for customers special needs.Our mud cleaner can meet almost all needs for oil & gas well drilling fluids treatment system and HDD Mud Recycling System.
These cones are mounted above the screen deck of the shale shaker. The drilling fluid (mud) is fed first through the hydrocyclones, where the discharge cascades down over the shale shaker screens. This helps to reduce the amount of mud attached to the discharged cuttings. To further increase separation efficiency, and optional VFD G-Force Controller is available for the King Cobra shaker, which allows the operator to tune the G-forces exerted on the shaker bed to one of three settings: 6.1 (NORM), 6.7 (HIGH), and 7.3 (MAX).
GN mud cleaner is very popular all over the world, and especially suit for the Chinese ZJ series drilling rig equipments, or alike rigs. Customized design are also available.
