M-I SWACO offers a line of mud cleaners that employs a two-stage separation process for the ultimate in drilling fluid recovery. Our mud cleaners use a combination of hydrocyclones mounted over a shale shaker to operate as a single unit. M-I SWACO mud cleaners are designed to handle the entire circulating volume to remove and dry solids while retaining premium base fluid. They are equally effective for both weighted and unweighted drilling-fluids.
With our mud cleaners, the hydrocyclones make the primary separation with underflow directed onto the shaker vibrating screen. The M-I SWACO mud cleaners have been proved effective in lowering both drilling-fluid and disposal costs.
