A one-step, unique solids control system can simultaneously discard small and large particles from the mud. The one-step solids control fluid conditioning can deliver desirable rheological properties and a reasonable size range for the suspended material.
In oil field production system, the oil and gas processing stations are important hazard areas. In the transformation progresses a multitude of safety problems occur frequently each year, which cause personal injury accidents and lead to psychology shadow to each employee. That also exposes existing problems in oil and gas construction areas over the years. In order to better improve the HSE management level and reduce accidents as well as personnel damages, the HSE management level must be constantly improved in construction site.
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.
