Mud Recycling and Mixing Systems

Mud Recycling
To work in conjunction with the our new 250T drilling rig we have also purchased a comprehensive mud processing and recycling facility.

The high performance Derrick recycling unit has been designed to process 3000 litres of high viscosity drilling fluid per minute. The system comprises two Derrick Equipment FLC-504 shale shakers for primary screening and a Derrick FLC-504 mud cleaner, complete with 3 x 10 inch de-sander cones and 20 x 4 inch de-silter cones, for de-sanding and de-silting.

The Derrick 504 units are mounted on a 24 foot (8 metre) base tank which incorporates integrated centrifugal pumps to feed the de-sander and de-silter cones.

Screening is carried out using the revolutionary pyramid screening system ensuring consistent cleaning down to approximately 20μm (20 microns).

The mud mixing system comprises an 18 cubic metre mixing tank incorporating integrated centrifugal pumps for mixing through a 6 inch mud hopper, plus two 30 cubic metre holding tanks complete with agitators.

Clear Solutions International Ltd manufactured the equipment under license to leading solids separation company Derrick Equipment who are based in Buffalo, New York, USA. For more information about our mud recycling facilities, please contact us using our contact form

Mud Mixing
We have recently fabricated a complete trailer-mounted drilling fluid (mud) mixing system in our own in-house workshop. This work was carried out entirely by our own team of skilled welder-fabricators and plant mechanics.

The system is mounted on a step-frame HGV trailer, and consists of the following components which are permanently mounted to the trailer to form a complete working unit:
  • 'Clear Solutions' mud mixing system
  • Diesel powered charge pump to provide up to 400 gallons/minute of drilling fluid to the drill rig
  • On board mini laboratory and stores unit in a secure container for the rapid analysis of the mud mix for viscosity etc.
  • Telescopic LED Lighting tower to provide a safe working environment at any time of day or night with very lower power consumption.
  • Stabilising legs front and rear to level and support the unit on site
The unit has full safety railings around the whole unit which are detachable for transport.

This unit is a great addition to our fleet, as it can be easily transported to site, and can be set up and working within minutes of arrival if required.
