Why we should have drill slurry storaged? Mainly it is because of the reasons below:

(1)   Requirement for the carriage and storage of mud on mobile drilling units has increased over the years, it is not convenient to process the drilling mud at the platform, you have to collect the used drill slurry and carry it to drilling fluids plant for process, then recycle the clean drill slurry and disposal the useless cuttings, so that it will not influence the environment.

(2)   Clean drill slurry should be storaged for use, for drilling , for mixing , for lubricate the drill bit.

(3)   Useless drill cuttings should be collected and storage, then carried to drilling waste management system for process.

GN solids control manufacture drill slurry storage tank for various application, with necessary mud agitators, mud gun, centrifugal pump and mixing hopper. We can produce mud storage tank together with solids control system or separately. Compared with shaker tank and intermediate tank, the pipeline of storage tank is much simple, if required by the clients, we will divide it into several compartment by clapboard. Sometimes mud ditch is installed on each compartment. Handrails, stairs, cleaning gate, valves are included, but walkways are not included. There is flexible hose connected 2 tanks.

The mud mixing plant is with mud hopper, slurry pump, mud agitator, mud tank, control system, and the painting color can be customized. The mud tank dimension is designed by the active capacity clients required. And we should consider the container shipment when design, freight charge is one of the factor clients may care.

Except for skid-mounted mud mixing plant, we can also make it portable mud mixing plant, and connected with truck head for convenient transportation.

During shipment, we put mud hopper inside the tank by remove the Galvanized Steel Grating, and put the hand rail, stairs on top of the tank.

Except for mud mixing plant, we can also produce mud recycling system plant, including shaker tank, suction tank, reserve tank, water tank, trip tank, pill tank and related solids control equipment. We can also add dewatering unit if clients required.

Oilfield trip tank

A small mud tank with a capacity of 10 to 15 barrels, usually with 1-barrel or h-barrel divisions, used to ascertain the amount of mud necessary to keep the wellbore full with the exact amount of mud that is displaced by drill pipe. When the bit comes out of the hole, a volume of mud equal to that which the drill pipe occupied while in the hole must be pumped into the hole to replace the pipe. when the bit goes back in the hole, the drill pipe displaces a certain amount of mud, and a trip tank can be used again to keep track of this volume.
