Other than the drill floor itself, the solids control system requires more attention than any other single rig system whether onshore or offshore. For that reason, it is most important that the solids control system is designed to be as efficient and as maintenance free as possible. This section will discuss that pan of the mud system extending from the bell nipple (or diverter housing outlet) to the mud pump suction piping.
Solids control is the most important function in mud treating. Control of mud properties centers around the treatment necessary to counteract the continual influx of drilled solids into the active mud system. Almost all of the costs of treating a mud can be directly attributed to solids control.
How properly used solids control equipment in different types (Natural mud, chemically-treated mud and saltwater mud) Water-Based Mud (WBM).
