Matters needing attention when using drilling fluid centrifuge

Oct 19, 2020

The drilling fluid centrifuge is a five-level solid control equipment in the drilling mud solid control system. It separates the suspension in the drilling fluid by the principle of centrifugal sedimentation. Drilling fluid centrifuge is one of the important equipment in the field of oil drilling, coal bed methane drilling and environmental protection waste mud treatment.

Matters needing attention when using a drilling fluid centrifuge:
1. Correctly use the tools to install the required specifications of the swivel head, and do not place anything on the machine cover.
2. Speed setting shall not exceed the maximum speed to ensure safe operation.
3. Control the viscosity of drilling fluid into the centrifuge to keep the viscosity within the range of 35-37s.
4. The input speed of drilling fluid should not exceed the recommended maximum range.
5. The drilling fluid centrifuge should not run for more than 60 minutes at a time.
6. After each operation, a detailed record of the usage of the drilling fluid centrifuge should be made.
7. When the drilling fluid is being processed by a drilling fluid centrifuge, some bentonite should be added to the drilling fluid regularly. If not added in time, the viscosity of the drilling fluid will be reduced and the filtration loss will be increased.

KOSUN DC Series drilling fluid centrifuge is used to separate suspended solids ≥2μm in diameter and treat the drilling mud and fluids. It is especially effective when used in oilfield service industry, industrial service industry and especially in environmentally sensitive areas. This type of drilling fluid centrifuge is high in recovery rate, effective in solids control and remarkable in the reduction of cost spent on drilling mud resupplying and management. It is a very sophisticated dynamic balancing machine, able to operate stably with the whirling speed ranging from 0 to 3900 and generate centrifugal force of 3000G.
