MudCube in Operation

The MudCube primary solids control technology separates solids and liquid differently from the traditional type of high G forces vibrating shale shakers, using a combination of high air flow and vacuum to separate all types of drilling fluids from drilled solids. The MudCube handles all types of drilling fluids and completion fluids using full API RP 13C Mesh ranges filterbelts.

The MudCube primary solids control technology separates solids and liquid differently from the traditional type of high G forces vibrating shale shakers, using a combination of high air flow and vacuum to separate all types of drilling fluids from drilled solids.

The MudCube handles all types of drilling fluids and completion fluids using full API RP 13C Mesh sizes filterbelts.

  •  A rotating filter belt carries drilling fluid and drilled solids forward, while air, at 20 000 litres per minute, is pulled through this filter belt taking with it the liquid phase, the drilling fluid.
  • The cleaned drilling fluid returned to the active mud system
  • Drilled solids carried forward on the filter belt discharged either directly overboard or to a cuttings handling system
  • The filter belts are available in all API RP 13C Mesh sizes
  • An air-knife and a water-knives are installed on the inside of the vertical part of the filter belt used to remove any cuttings or sticky clay that may have “stuck” to the belt.
  • Pneumatic micro-vibrators are installed underneath the filter belt to create resonance and improve conductance
  • The drilling fluid and fine particles vacuumed through the filter belt is fed through a secondary filter-unit mounted on the outside of the MudCube. This prevent fine particles slipping through the filter belt to build up in the drilling fluid over time (very low LGS / sand content in the drilling fluid).
