Drilling Mud Transfer
Drilling mud is most commonly used in the process of drilling boreholes for a variety of reasons such as oil and gas extraction as well as core sampling. The mud plays an important role in the drilling process by serving numerous functions. The main function it is utilized for is as a lubricating agent. A large amount of friction is generated as drilling occurs which has the potential to damage the drill or the formation being drilled. The mud aids in the decrease in friction as well as lowering the heat of the drilling. It also acts a carrier for the drilled material so it becomes suspended in the mud and carried to the surface.
Using a Moyno progressive cavity pump, the drilling mud with suspended material can be pumped through a process to remove the solids and reuse the cleaned mud for further drilling.
The Moyno 2000 G1 product can be effectively utilized in this application.
