Solids Control and Waste Management

KOSUN focus on production Solids Control and Waste Management Equipment  in Drilling Operations since 1992. KOSUN is a professional company providing comprehensive solutions to solid waste treatment in the field of energy conservation and environmental protection, which focuses on development and services of complete technologies and equipment of sludge reduction and resource utilization.

The solids control system forms the first waste management practice in any drilling operation. It removes drill cuttings from the drilling mud at the surface just before the mud re-enters the mud-pit for recirculation. Apart from drill cuttings, the solids control equipment also removes some gases and other contaminants in the mud before they are re-circulated. The early removal of these solids avoids accumulation and clogging of the system and the separation devices sizes of solids.

The components of the solids control system will depend upon the types of drilling fluid used, these formations being drilled, the available equipment on the rig, and the specific requirements of the disposal option. But basically, standard solid control equipment will comprise of shale shakers, degassers, desanders and desilters. The mud passes over a shale shaker, which is basically a vibrating screen. This removes the larger particles, while allowing the residue to pass into settling tanks. The finer particles are further removed in the desanders and desilters. If the mud contains gas from the formation it will be passed through a degasser which separates the gas from liquid mud, having passed through all the mud processing equipment the mud is returned to the mud tanks for recycling, while the residue (drill cuttings with adhered drilling fluid) is either kept in a temporary storage facility for treatment and final disposal or direct discharged into the sea. In general, the solids control equipment reduces the volume of drilling waste requiring disposal.
