The desilter http://www.kosungroup.com/products/solids-control-equipment/desilter.html with underflow shaker is also called Mini cleaner which is applicable for both weighted and unweighted drilling mud, while traditional desander no underflow vibrating screen only for unweighted drilling fluids. And comparing with large size desander and desilter assembly, the Mini Desander is cost-effective. For compact mud system used in HDD, CBM, water well drilling and Mining project, Mini desilter cleaner is an Ideal choice.

Generally, that of the cone of the diameter less than 6″ is called desilter, and used as the third solids control equipment in drilling operation.

In petroleum drilling fluids solids control system, desilter http://www.kosungroup.com/products/solids-control-equipment/desilter.html is distinguished with desander according to the size of the cone diameter.

While installing a desilter, please follow these general recommendations:
1. Size the desilter to process 100-125% of the total mud circulation rate.
2. Take the desilter suction from the compartment receiving fluid processed by the desander.
3. Keep all lines as short & straight as possible.
4. Do not use the same centrifugal pump to feed both the desander & desilter. If both pieces of equipment are to be operated at the same time, they should be installed in series and each should have its own pump.
5. Direct the overflow line downward into the next downstream compartment at an angle of approximately 45%.
6. Keep the end of the discharge line above the surface of the mud to avoid creating a vacuum in the line.
7. Install a low equalizer line to permit backflow in to the desander section.
8. Install a guard screen over the suction with? slots to prevent large trash from entering the unit and plugging the cones.
